NORWICH (AFP) - Manchester City failed to regain pole position in the Premier League after they were held to a 0-0 draw at Norwich on Saturday, Feb 8, 2014.

With Arsenal having been beaten 5-1 at Liverpool earlier in the day, three points would have been enough for Manuel Pellegrini's side to go top.

Instead, City now find themselves in third position as Chelsea - who had beaten them 1-0 in Manchester on Monday - opened up a one-point lead at the top by winning at home to Newcastle.

City began the afternoon by restoring James Milner, Gael Clichy and Stevan Jovetic to the starting line-up and moving Martin Demichelis back into defence.
