Will Club World Cup help Manchester City fix what's broken?

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia -- Manchester City have arrived in Saudi Arabia looking to add the FIFA Club World Cup to their already bulging trophy cabinet, but for the first time in a while, their reign as kings of England is under threat.

History suggests Pep Guardiola's team should lift the trophy at King Abdullah Sports City on Friday, because the European representative and UEFA Champions League winner usually does. But they've creaked enough in the Premier League over the first half of the season to give everyone else in Jeddah -- including Brazil's Fluminense, champions of South America -- just that little bit of hope.
