Report & Ratings: Crystal Palace 0-3 Man City – 28/01/17


Leroy Sane scored for the third successive game to help City reach the FA Cup fifth round as Crystal Palace lost to Premier League opposition for the fifth time in six games under Sam Allardyce.

Palace were behind when Gabriel Jesus, making his first start for the Blues, passed for Raheem Sterling to score in the first half.

Leroy Sane doubled City’s lead after converting a wonderful pass by David Silva in the 71st minute.

Yaya Toure completed the Blues’ win with an exquisite finish from a free-kick in added time.

Overall City were just too good for Palace and the scoreline was a fair reflection of how comfortable it was for them on the day.

Pep Guardiola will certainly be pleased that Vincent Kompany looked back to his old self after returning from a two-month injury lay-off with a clean sheet, Willy Caballero also impressed after pulling off a couple of good saves to earn himself a well-deserved clean sheet.
