Record Breakers Man City Stopped By Crystal Palace

Pep Guardiola

But it could have been even worse for City.

Paul Pogba had a lively game for United, perhaps motivated by the recent criticism he received from Paul Scholes who, in his capacity as a TV pundit, had accused the Frenchman of "just strolling through games". De Bruyne was stretchered off at the end and although the injury appears innocuous, he may miss today's home match against Watford.

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne maintained his record of starting every Premier League game in 2017-18 despite fears over his fitness following a horror challenge from Crystal Palace's Jason Puncheon.

"Ask the FA. It's a tradition".

We don't yet know the extent of De Bruyne's injury and perhaps won't for a few days, but he is incredibly resilient and as tough as old boots and the moment he is able to, he'll be back in action. The main focus is still on whether City can go the season unbeaten, matching Arsenal's Invincibles from 2003-04. I think we deserved to win.

City's seemingly inevitable second goal came after 13 minutes, this time De Bruyne delivering from the right and the unfortunate Kabasele sliding in to flick the ball beyond Heurelho Gomes.

Initally, Palace were impressively positive, keeping a high defensive line whenever possible and attempting to engage City in advanced positions when possible.

"So sometimes you have three days for recovery, sometimes four, sometimes two, everybody is the same". Again, however, the shot was blocked.

"Referees have to protect".

Wilfried Zaha burst down the right wing and sent a low ball into the box.

"He's injured in the terms hopefully it will only be one or two months", he said. But it is December, there are lot of fixtures to play.

Aguero, who replaced Jesus, went closest in the first half as he rattled the woodwork in the 28th minute. "At this level, when you have clear chances to score, seconds before they equalised too, it gives belief to the opponents [if you miss]".

The first half was marred by injuries and early substitutions for both sides.

This was your moment Andros Townsend. "But my feeling now is that he's an Arsenal player and he will be". Fernandinho attempted a diagonal which he thumped straight out of play.

It looked as though the 27-year-old frontman was to put the Eagles into a shock lead, but the Belgium international could not guide his attempt around the closing Frenchman, who did well to obstruct the effort and guide it away to safety. "They must protect the players", Guardiola said. "The only thing Paul Scholes does is to criticise", he told the London Evening Standard.

Guardiola defended his side's rare slip-up, insisting dropping points was always going to happen.
