"Phenomenal" - Crystal Palace fans salute star after outrageous win

Dec 24, 2018, 02:26

One social media user even went as far as to claim they would name their newborn baby after the player should Palace win the game.

"We look at ourselves and we had chances".

And City failed to cut the gap as they dropped points at home for the first time this season despite going ahead through Ilkay Guendogan's header.

Jurgen Klopp's side are four points clear at the top of the table after Manchester City slipped to a surprise defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"We've watched Liverpool now for five years ship goals left, right and centre".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola reacts at the end of the match as Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson celebrates in Manchester December 22, 2018. The form that Liverpool is it might just make it more hard for Man City to regain the lead.

Guardiola brought on substitutes Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne and it was the Belgian midfielder who gave the home side hope with a cross-shot in the 85th minute that caught out Palace keeper Vicente Guaita.

"I suppose that will also be foremost in my memory but I must say the Manchester City we beat then weren't anywhere near as good as the team we beat here".

It was Palace's first away victory over City since 1990 and came after 5-0 thrashings in each of their last two visits to the Etihad Stadium.

"It is impossible to get the ball off them". He has scored a few special goals in his time at Selhurst Park but given the occasion and the size of the task they had at the Etihad, this must surely have been his sweetest hit, not to mention his best. Nathan Redmond opened the scoring with his first of the season before Danny Ings made it 2-0 from the penalty spot three minutes before half-time. "His side were able to ask a lot of questions but we managed to come up with the answers".

Huddersfield pulled one back two minutes before the hour through Philip Billing but Michael Obafemi restored the Saints' two goal advantage on 71 minutes.

Elsewhere, fifth-plaved Arsenal drew level on points with Chelsea after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck twice in a 3-1 win over Burnley at the Emirates.
