Manchester City's surprise run of three defeats in four games, the latest in Wednesday's 2-1 defeat at Leicester City, has been widely attributed to one simple cause -- the absence of defensive midfielder Fernandinho. Yet while the Brazilian's injury has clearly dented their Premier League title defense, given the absence of any effective replacement to shield their defense, City's woes run deeper than the loss of just one individual, however influential.While the inevitable injuries picked up through a season did little to knock City off course last term, this season Guardiola has had to deal with not just the recent loss of Fernandinho but also of several key players at the same time.David Silva missed City's last five games before returning at Leicester and his importance to the team's trademark style was certainly highlighted in the recent losses.
