Manchester City enjoyed a mesmerising away victory against Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday. Palace were looking forward to meeting again, following a previous defeat to Leicester City. Man City, on the other hand, were coming off the back of a 5-2 win against Southampton. At the moment, Palace and Man City sit 13th, (38 points) and 1st, (80 points), in the league respectively, after 34 matches.
After an un-eventful first half, Cityzens continued to apply pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to Sergio Aguero finding the net in the 57th minute. Man City then scored once more and increased their advantage thanks to a goal from Ferran Torres, on 59 minutes with a final score of 2-0.
For Palace, Jeffrey Schlupp, Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew, came on for Jairo Riedewald, Christian Benteke and Andros Townsend. Man City replaced Olexandr Zinchenko with Fernandinho.
The referee booked Luka Milivojevic and Cheikhou Kouyate for Palace.
Palace will next travel to Sheffield United, while Man City will face Chelsea at home.
