Pep Guardiola has expressed the need for three points when his side travel to Leicester on Boxing Day.
City slipped four points behind leaders Liverpool after the 3-2 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday and Guardiola wants to see a positive reaction.
"We have to go to Leicester and win," he said.
"Last season, when it happened that we dropped points, immediately we won again.
"That’s what we have to do. We have two games away before the new year and we have to do that.
"When you win, always I insist you focus on the next one and now is the same.
"We lose again, it happens, focus on the next one."
