After seeing its Premier League lead wiped out by archrival Manchester United, Manchester City's title credentials face a severe test when they play revitalized Sunderland and then Liverpool in a three-day span to kick off a hectic month for the big-spending northern club.

City still top the standings as they go in search of a first English title since 1968, but have squandered a five-point advantage in the space of a month to lead United only on goal difference.

The pressure will be ramped up on Roberto Mancini's men in January, when they also play United in the third round of the FA Cup and Liverpool over two legs in the semifinals of the League Cup.

City goalkeeper Joe Hart says "there is all sorts of pressure and we're feeling it."
