City will welcome in the New Year still fighting on four fronts after seeing off Leicester City with a comfortable 3-1 win.

A two-legged Capital One Cup semi-final in January can be penned into the Blues’ already well-inked 2014 diaries after Aleksandar Kolarov gave the Blues a seventh minute lead with a stunning free-kick, before Edin Dzeko doubled the advantage five minutes before half-time.

Dzeko put the tie to bed after 52 minutes with a composed finish from the edge of the area and the hosts grabbed a consolation through Lloyd Dyer with 15 minutes to go.

In winning their third consecutive game in all competitions, merciless City scored their 73rd, 74th and 75th goals of the season.
