Recap So Far : just as expected, Manchester City dominated this game from the first minute but their attack seemed sloppy and Crystal Palace found it very easy to deal with their balls.
Crystal Palace are defending deeply and looking for that counter but City keeps pressing and forcing mistakes from their visitors.
CITY opened the scoring with with Gundogan’s header but the lead lasted only five minutes before Schlupp equalized after forcing himself for a low shot in the box. Then the eagles took the lead with Townsend’s volley before thh break.
The lead was doubled when Walker tripped Meyer in thh box and milivojevic scored from the spot.
