Crystal Palace produced one of the biggest shocks of the season when they beat 10-man Manchester City 2-0, with Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher scoring twice.

Zaha blasted away on a counter-attack from Palace to put the visitors ahead in seven minutes, scored his 50th Premier League goal for the club, then tempted Aymeric Laporte to pull him out just before the break which resulted in the City defender being sent off for being the last man.

Pep Guardiola’s side gave their manager a good second-half goal in their 200th Premier League game and thought they had leveled when Gabriel Jesus stabbed into the back post, but VAR overturned Phil Foden. It was offside in the buildup.

And this decision seemed to reduce the attack of City and Al-Qasr counter-attack cleverly in the latter stages, as Gallagher fired into the net to seal the points.

With this result, Manchester City leaves five points behind Chelsea in third place in the Premier League.
