Goodbye

I'm afraid it is that time of the night again. Yep, time to wrap up and say farewell.

*sobs*

But the year is not quite over yet as far as Premier League football is concerned. Hurrah! 

Make sure you join us tomorrow from 19:00 GMT when relegation-threatened Sunderland host Liverpool. Cheerio!

Leicester 0-0 Man City

So this is how the top end of the Premier League will look as 2015 moves into 2016....

Many justifiably upset that N'Golo Kante wasn't named man of the match. Don't worry he's probably already intercepted the award. #LCFC

Manager reaction - Pellegrini

Leicester 0-0 Man City

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini on BBC Radio 5 live: "I don't divide the season into home and away games. We are three points behind the leaders and play them both at home in the second-half. The season for the moment is a good season. We know we must improve but at the end of the season we won't be dividing the away games and home games.

"I think we conceded 20 goals in the first half of the season which is too much."

Pellegrini confirms Kompany absence

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini does not expect a swift return for captain Vincent Kompany after he limped off in the win against Sunderland with a calf injury following a brief appearance as a substitute.

He said: "It will maybe be three of four weeks. It is the same calf but a different part. For it to be less than three or four weeks would be very difficult."

Manager reaction - Pellegrini

Leicester 0-0 Man City

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini on the title: "I don't think in December that you're going to win the title. At the end of January and the first week of February, maybe we can see more which are finally the teams which will be involved in the fight."

Leicester 0-0 Man City

We've looked at Manchester City's profligacy in front of goal so it's only fair we take a graphical look at Leicester's goalmouth action.

As you can see by comparing the home side's efforts to their visitors, they didn't make Joe Hart's workload as hefty as Kasper Schmeichel's.

The Foxes only managed four shots on target throughout (green arrows), with seven more missing the target (red arrows).

Player reaction - Morgan

Leicester 0-0 Man City

Leicester captain Wes Morgan reacts on BT Sport: "We lost at the weekend and it was important to come back with some sort of result. We didn't make the most of our chances but it's a good point.

"We are just going along and seeing how far we can get, taking one game at a time."

Leicester 0-0 Man City

See all those red arrows darting around the Leicester goal? They basically mean that Manchester City couldn't hit a large farmyard animal with a banjo. The visitors missed the target with nine of their shots, plus seven which were blocked by Leicester players (the yellow circles).

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri on BT Sport: "I think we made a very good match. It was difficult. We played well, we created some chances. I wanted to see how my players responded after the Liverpool defeat and they responded well. 

"Every match is difficult for us. This league is very crazy...nobody wants to win the league. It's very strange. 

"We're the basement and the other teams are a villa with a swimming pool. It's not easy for us but we want to fight with everybody. 

"It's a miracle what we're doing. I'd love this to continue but it's not easy. I'd like my players to continue to fight like today. It's fantastic. I can only say well done to our players and our fans are unbelievable, they support us and they push us."

Kompany out for three-to-four weeks - reports

Leicester 0-0 Man City

On another day maybe our first half would have produced a few goals but overall the lads played well, got a point and a clean sheet. #mcfc

Daily Telegraph reporter Mark Ogden has just tweeted from the King Power Stadium to say Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has told reporters Kompany will miss another three to four weeks.

Leicester 0-0 Man City

Funny that Raheem Sterling mentions that clean sheet, because I was just about to. Leicester's blank means Man City kept a clean sheet for the first time in the league without skipper Vincent Kompany. And that could be excellent timing...

Player reaction - Sterling

Leicester 0-0 Man City

Man City forward Raheem Sterling on BT Sport: "We played really well at times. For the majority of the game we controlled the game and had a couple of chances to score but they're a good team and kept us out and that's what the league is about. 

"We were consistent throughout the game. The only thing that was missing was the final cutting edge. Our away form hasn't been great over the last few games and the most important thing was coming here, keeping a clean sheet and defending well."

#bbcfootball .. Why was #toure still on when #aguero & #silva can turn a match at any time .. Missed a chance

They might not win the title but if Vardy and Mahrez stay, Leicester will definitely be playing UCL football next season. WOW! #bbcfootball

Leicester 0-0 Man City

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri looks pretty happy with that point in his post-match interview. They responded "very well" to losing at Liverpool on Boxing Day, he says.

Then the eccentric Italian starts rambling on about swimming pools and holiday villas...! Full quotes on the way.

Manager reaction

Leicester 0-0 Man City

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini reacts on BT Sport: "I think we did more than Leicester to win the game. We had more possession, more attempts, more options but it was a tough game against a tough team playing away.

"We didn't come here to try to draw it. We didn't allow them to create options. I think we not only kept the ball, we went the whole game for the three points.

"This is a crucial period. I think at the end of January we will know exactly what position we are in. We will know if we are in the FA Cup and the final of the Capital One Cup and we have five or six very important Premier League games."

FULL-TIME

Leicester 0-0 Man City

Manchester City dominated the stats - but not the one that really matters. The visitors hogged the ball for long periods, and were only a tent and groundsheet away from setting up camp in Leicester territory in the first half.

But they only managed to convert five of their 21 attempts into shots on target.

Man City attacker Raheem Sterling on his side's title chances: "We've got a good chance. We just need to focus on winning our games. If we win most of our games we can only control what we're doing and hopefully other teams will slip up.

"It's a really exciting league and that's why it's a joy to be involved in it. Anyone can win football matches."

A bit harsh Rio...

Leicester 0-0 Man City

Leicester City seem disappointed with a point here...if Arsenal dont win the league this yr they need whipping with dry/hot leather sandals!
