Defending champions Manchester City were stunned 3-2 by Crystal Palace at the Etihad, which means Pep Guardiola’s men will be four points behind Liverpool at Christmas in the race for the league title.

The Citizens opened the scoring in the 27th minute through Ilkay Gundogan, but Palace hit back with three goals, including a stunning volley in the 35th minute by Andros Townsend in the first half.

Jeffrey Schlupp and Luka Milivojevic (pen) were also on the scoresheet for Crystal Palace.

Substitute Kevin de Bruyne pulled one back for Manchester City to make it 3-2 with five minutes remaining, but Roy Hodgson’s side held on for the win.

Crystal Palace registered their first away league win at Man City since December 1990, having drawn three and lost nine since then before today.
