However, if they could take at least four points from their next two games against Spurs and City then they would be right in the mix and having the benefit of a very favourable run-in. The burden has fallen on first-team regulars to pick up the slack and there is a danger that fatigue could have a serious effect going into the final months of the season.

It is just the fourth time City have dropped points in the Premier League this season, but they still enjoy a commanding lead over Manchester United.

The England global has made 15 league appearances this season apart from featuring nine times in domestic cup competitions and the Champions League.

The rate of games has been relentless.

It is City's first seven-day period without a midweek game since August - excluding global breaks - with a whole week between the Burnley game and Saturday's clash with Leicester City.

In the league, Arsenal's away form has been the big concern as they've picked up just three wins on the road - which have come against Everton, Crystal Palace and Burnley. With Wigan in the Cup and Basel in the Champions League, there is every reason to suggest there will be more games added to the calendar.

The City manager said he did not have any other players available as City's youngsters were in Premier League 2 action on Friday night, losing 1-0 at home to Swansea.

The Spaniard only named six substitutes for their clash against Sean Dyche's men after claiming they don't have any more players to fill their bench.

They rode their luck at times, and perhaps Manchester City became complacent in the second half, but they battled hard and executed their game plan perfectly, growing into the game in the second half and deserving a draw in the end.

Guardiola's side have left the rest of the division in their wake this term, but Kompany was clear that they are not taking anyone lightly.
