Looking to me so far like City have similar issues to what they had post-EPL success two years ago under Mancini, some players are just not turning up and look sluggish which is leading to bad results. The schedule doesn't help them, but they've hardly been in inspirational form this year so far either. Pellegrini has his work cut out for him now, he did well last year after a bad start so will be interesting how he goes from here. Chelsea and Roma games will be massive on both fronts with significant consequences on the results.
