Man City left to question priorities for Crystal Palace visit

Man City left to question priorities for Crystal Palace visit

City manager Pep Guardiola said battling for a quintuple - he counts the lightly-regarded Community Shield which they won at the outset of the season and have also won the League Cup - he could feel the pressure building on achieving that historic feat.

The Eagles will be the underdogs for this clash as they will be playing against a fired-up Citzens side who are aiming to win their second consecutive Premier League title under Pep Guardiola.

"We have to learn from golf and other sports like that - the most important action is the next one. The finishing from Sterling was incredible".

The wait for another Manchester City slip-up in the title race goes on.

"You don't beat yourself up".

Well, minutes later and we were all reminded yet again of just how talented Sterling truly is, as he gave City the lead with a quite frankly stunning effort. "That's the mentality, just keep going and the chance will come". There was a risk that City might suffer in midfield given that Fernandinho missed out with a minor injury, but De Bruyne covered every blade of grass. They missed a golden chance after 10 minutes when Silva did brilliantly to reach the byline and cut the ball back to the unmarked Sterling, who could only roll it past the post.

City may not have an easy time breaking down this side.

Guaita then saved as De Bruyne's cross flicked off Martin Kelly and towards his own goal, but Palace's goalkeeper reacted well down low.

But Palace set up a nervous finish for City, as Milivojevic curled home a free kick to make it 2-1 after Cheikhou Kouyate caused havoc in the defensive wall. That is some boost at this stage of the campaign, and Guardiola was effusive in his praise of a player who, even in such a richly talented squad, noticeably raises City's level when on song.
