Share this story

Game is over and the final score is Man City 23 Crystal Palace. Here is the match report

It had been coming and City take the lead! It comes after more good work down the left. Sane plays the ball back to Delph and the stand-in skipper crosses superbly with his right foot to find Ilkay Gundogan as he drifts in at the far post and plants his header into the corner.

What a response from Palace and what a finish from Jeffrey Schlupp. Zaha gets at Laporte down the right channel, and is tackled but the loose ball comes to Townsend. He finds Schlupp, who gets into the box but appears to be getting forced away from goal, only to angle a fine shot, low into the far corner of the net! We’re all square!

UNBELIEVABLE! What a hit from Andros Townsend! Palace lead and Townsend has just scored one of the goals of the season! 

No mistake from Luka Milivojevic, firing the ball beyond Ederson into the ‘keeper’s left-hand corner. Palace have daylight and, as it stands, so will Liverpool at the top of the table!

He’s not meant it, but Kevin de Bruyne has pulled one back for City! His cross from the right is overhit but it drifts beyond Guaita and into the far corner.
