Midfielder Nigel de Jong expects Manchester City to pull together to get their title charge back on track.

The Barclays Premier League leaders have stuttered since Christmas, suffering a shock 1-0 loss at Sunderland after a frustrating goalless draw at West Brom. City still top the table from Manchester United on goal difference but face another tough test as Liverpool visit the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

De Jong told City TV: "We win with each other, we lose with each other. We have to take this one on board, discuss it and see what went wrong and just go on to the next game."
