Manchester City lose Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus to injuries

Saturday Premier League wrap The things you might have missed

Kevin De Bruyne was carried off on a stretcher late in City's 0-0 draw, with Gabriel Jesus also leaving the pitch injured and in tears.

The Brazilian, 20, went off in tears after appearing to injure a knee during the first half at Selhurst Park.

Their ninth game in December saw more onus on the considerable creativity of Kevin de Bruyne in playmaker David Silva's continued absence. In two days, we have another game (at home to Watford).

The result means City are 14 points clear of Chelsea at the top - and still unbeaten - while Palace are one point clear of the drop zone.

"He is a player for Arsenal and I think he is going to stay there", he said. They have already punished Oumar Niasse and Manuel Lanzini but Zaha's dive was the worst I have seen this season'.

"After an effort like this you'd wish we could make the changes Manchester City feel they can always make when you look at the quality of the players they have who aren't playing".

"At a moment like this, it's better to focus on how well we played and give the players an enormous pat on the back".

But the previously sensational Belgian's set-pieces were off colour - only one of six deliveries was risky, and his passing accuracy (80%) was less than any other starting City player.




It is the second time in recent games that Palace have had a late penalty saved in order to miss out on a win, following Christian Benteke's late spot-kick failure in the 2-2 draw with Bournemouth.

PEP GUARDIOLA has admitted Manchester City could be forced to make a bid for Alexis Sanchez in January. "But my feeling now is that he's an Arsenal player and he will be".

Manchester City's record-breaking winning run in the Premier League has come to an end.

Hodgson claimed before the game there was "no magic formula" to competing with City, insisting his Palace side's hopes of getting something from the game hinged on working hard, and defending well while maintaining an attacking threat.

Yet after being so impressive for so long, the draw at Crystal Palace offered proof that City can be stopped.

Crystal Palace have only lost one of their last 10 Premier League games (W3 D6), having lost 13 of their 16 before this run.

"I admire the physicality of the Premier League, but the referees have to protect the players", Guardiola said.
