Crystal Palace halts Manchester City winning streak

Crystal Palace halts Manchester City winning streak

Manchester City didn't just loose two points but they also lost two key players, Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne.

The result means City are 14 points clear of Chelsea at the top - and still unbeaten - while Palace are one point clear of the drop zone.

"I am not thinking to be unbeaten", said Guardiola afterwards.

"That is not going to happen", he said.

Gabriel left the pitch in tears in the 23rd minute after appearing to accidentally injure his knee when he slipped as he tried to control the ball minutes earlier.

"People focus on diving, this kind of thing, OK... but not Man City players, all the league".

"They are a good team".

In Shimla, Congress MLA slaps lady constable; gets slapped back
Blaming the PCC for mismanagement at the party's office gate, Kumari added, "I can only blame myself for the unsavoury incident". Well, while this became quite a news, all that leaped the situation is the lady constable slapping her back at the moment.

"Maybe [it was penalty] - I didn't see it really well", he sad. "Today is completely different to 2004".

Guardiola's team have already passed many tests this season, but it is now that their endurance will be questioned. I expect Watford to do similar, it's hard to pick up value in games when this is the expected effort from the away side.

Milivojevic was presented with the chance to seal a memorable victory for Roy Hodgson's relegation-threatened side when Wilfried Zaha was brought down by Raheem Sterling in the 90th minute.

It was the first time City dropped points since a 1-1 draw at home to Everton on August 21. "Protect them, that's all I can say", he said.

"In the internal meetings we are going to decide what is best".

Not winning their 19th consecutive game is hardly evidence of the wheels coming off City's remarkable title bid, but there were signs that could be problematic in south London.

De Bruyne was stretchered off after a strong tackle from Puncheon, but was seen walking back to the City dressing room accompanied by two medical staff and told reporters he was OK.

Prez, PM congratulate Viswanathan Anand for winning World Chess title
With four points out of a possible six, Anand is a point behind eight leaders on five points apiece and now shares the 18th spot. Anand won his first FIDE World Chess Championship in 2000 in Tehran, after several near-misses in the year before.

But the previously sensational Belgian's set-pieces were off colour - only one of six deliveries was unsafe, and his passing accuracy (80%) was less than any other starting City player.

Leroy Sane could step up to fill the gap in the coming weeks but he struggled too.

It is the second time in recent games that Palace have had a late penalty saved in order to miss out on a win, following Christian Benteke's late spot-kick failure in the 2-2 draw with Bournemouth.

Kyle Walker rarely let Palace's in-form Wilfried Zaha get the better of him, and made more interceptions (three), gained more possessions (13) and sprinted faster (34.69 km/h) than any other City player.

Despite failing to score for the first time in 21 league games, City remains well ahead of the pack.

Luca Milivojevic's penalty in injury-time was stopped by Ederson's legs, meaning the points were shared at Selhurst Park, ending City's 18-match winning run in the process.
