Manchester City stunned by Palace, trail Liverpool by four points

However, Pep Guardiola felt taht his team had played well and just fell victim to some clinical finishing from Crystal Palace. "We have lost but we are only looking at ourselves game to game".

The 27-year-old notched perhaps the score of the Premier League season against Man City, blasting a volley from far outside the box into the top right corner of the net.

City failed to take the opportunity to move within a point of Jurgen Klopp's side on Saturday as they suffered a shock 3-2 defeat at the Etihad Stadium to Crystal Palace.

"We will always analyse every performance and see what we could have done better in different areas of the pitch, but with those two goals there is nothing you can do".

Manchester City cede further ground in the Premier League title race by throwing away a one-goal lead to lose 3-2 at home to Crystal Palace. The form that Liverpool is it might just make it more hard for Man City to regain the lead.

Without David Silva and with Kevin De Bruyne only coming on as a 62nd-minute substitute, City were not able to pass their way through the opposition defence as they normally do.

İlkay Gündoğan opened the scoring for the Citizens, but goals from Jeffrey Schlupp and Andros Townsend saw the visitors take the lead before the break, then Luka Milivojević extended the Eagles' lead after half time.

Steve Nicol recaps Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sensational start as Man United manager with a 5-1 win over Cardiff City.

Guardiola, who came under criticism for his team selection before and after the game, has defended his decision to leave stars Sergio Aguero and De Bruyne on the bench.

"I think we have an incredible team, fantastic players and we created enough chances in the first half, especially when the team defend so deep and low", Guardiola told a news conference. "His side were able to ask a lot of questions but we managed to come up with the answers".

It was the first time United had scored five goals since Sir Alex Ferguson's final game in charge in 2013.

Roy Hodgson's Palace had picked up just one point from their last six away games and had not won at City since 1990.

"At 2-0 at half-time, had that result stayed, we were relegated".
