Although Roy Hodgson‘s team scored two late goals, including a stoppage-time penalty, Pep Guardiola‘s champions won the match at the Etihad. These goals could have a significant effect on the title fight.

Along with Manchester United and Chelsea, Crystal Palace is one of just three teams to have won multiple times at the Etihad Stadium. As such, they have been something of a bogey team for Guardiola since his arrival in England in 2016.

Jack Grealish‘s goal was the only indication of the champions’ dominance during the first half, despite having nearly three-quarters of the possession.

After being found by Phil Foden in the 24th minute, the England winger scored his third goal of the league match.

Early in the second half, City had the ball in the net again thanks to a free kick from Julian Alvarez, but the goal was disallowed because Rodri was judged to be offside.
