Thierry Henry questions Manchester City's use of Wilfried Bony in Norwich draw

Manchester City's hopes of winning the Premier League title were dealt a significant blow on Saturday as relegation-threatened Norwich held them to a goalless draw.
City boss Manuel Pellegrini opted to partner Wilfried Bony with Sergio Aguero up front at Carrow Road, but the Ivory Coast striker did not touch the ball inside the area for the entirety of his stint before being replaced by Raheem Sterling.
Bony has scored just four goals in 19 Premier League appearances this season, and Sky Sports' pundit Thierry Henry was left baffled by the 27-year-old's lack of presence in the area on Saturday.
"I couldn't understand it. They're trying to get back in the title race and need goals for that. Pellegrini went with two strikers," he said.
"You should be running, breaking your neck to get into the box. That's not good enough, you have to be in the box. Who is there to make sure that you can upset the Norwich defence?"
Saturday's draw in East Anglia leaves City nine points adrift of leaders Leicester with just nine games left to play.
And Henry believes the club's focus may now have switched to a battle for the top four rather than one for the Premier League title.
"I think it's Leicester's to lose," he added. "We were saying before the game: 'Can Man City win the title?' I think the question now is: 'Can they stay in the top four?'"
