EPL: Manchester City's winning run ends, De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus injured

EPL: Manchester City's winning run ends, De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus injured”

The Citizens saw their fantastic 18-game winning streak end today as they were pegged back by Crystal Palace.

The game could have gotten worse for the cityzens after they conceded a late minute penalty but the set piece was thrown away by Luka Milivojevic.

De Bruyne was stretchered off after a strong tackle from Palace's Jason Puncheon, who was booked and was also taken off on a stretcher. Referee Jonathan Moss gave only a yellow card for the foul, which led City's medical staff to wrap De Bruyne's leg in a brace even before he was placed on the stretcher.

"Please, referees, they have to protect players". "It's the only thing I ask". After a lay off from De Bruyne in the middle of the park, the Argentine produced a mazy run to the edge of the box before striking, but it could only rattle the upright before going wide.

City looked in the mood to get the business settled early and they should have doubled their lead when Sane, after a clever piece of footwork, cut back to Stones but the defender's shot, while leaning back, flew high over the bar.

But the inevitable focus on the consequences of Sunday's match for City could not diminish the achievement for its opponent.

De Bruyne drove into the side-netting from a tight angle in the 78th minute and was immediately taken off by Guardiola, receiving a richly deserved ovation from the Etihad crowd. They are still very much firm favourites to lift the trophy come may, but they suffered what could prove to be a major setback during their clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

"He's injured in the terms hopefully it will only be one or two months", he said.

The odds compiler also offers 1/3 (1.34) that the men from Manchester win by at least two clear goals - that particular play would have landed in seven of the nine Premier League victories that Guardiola's side have recorded on home soil so far this season.

The Premier League has rarely seen more momentous stalemates than this.
