Report: Crystal Palace 1-2 Man City – 19/11/16


Yaya Toure marked his unexpected return to the starting eleven with two goals as the Blues grabbed a dramatic late win at Crystal Palace.

Toure, making his first Premier League appearance of the season, combined with Nolito to fire City ahead.

However Palace’s pressure paid off when Wilfried Zaha set up substitute Connor Wickham to smash home a second-half equaliser.

But Toure, who has not featured at all for City for almost three months, had the final word when he turned home Kevin de Bruyne’s clever corner from close range.

The win moves City up to second in the table, level on points with leaders Liverpool and with an identical goal difference.
