Manchester City secured a much-needed 2-1 victory over Burnley on Monday to get themselves back into the Premier League title race.

They will put their Premier League campaign to one side this weekend when they travel to West Ham in the third round of the FA Cup on Friday, with the Citizens looking to regain the title they won back in 2011.
