After Manchester City’s Premier League title hopes suffered a huge blow, it’s time to look at the five greatest comebacks in history.

It’s fair to say that Manchester City have got a mountain to climb upon losing 2-1 to local rivals Manchester United on Saturday. They’re now 14 points adrift in the Premier League title battle after just 16 games.

Fans and pundits alike are already writing off Pep Guardiola’s side from a third successive league title. Surely there’s no way back right?

City aren’t even Liverpool’s main challengers anymore, with Leicester City six points above them in second. While Chelsea are a little too close for comfort in fourth place at the moment.

But there may be hope for City yet considering the incredible comebacks over the years in the Premier League.

So, without further ado, we give you the league’s five greatest fightbacks since it’s inception in 1992.
