    The African Cup of Nations

    From past experience, ACN has minimal to no impact on title race.

    Two seasons ago, many believed that the lost of Drogba, Malouda, Essien, Mikel and Kalou to ACN duty would be detrimental to Chelsea's title chances, but their fringe players on cover stepped up to the plate. Chelsea went on to win the title at Man U's expense. Interestingly, Man U were one of the clubs who did not lose any player to ACN duty in that season.

    I doubt the ACN would affect City this season as they have 'quality' strength in depth all over the park.
