De Bruyne carried off at Palace as Jesus also suffers injury

Posted January 02, 2018

"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".

The result kept City unbeaten in league play (19-0-2) entering 2018, but there was little sense of relief for City's manager, Pep Guardiola, after two key players left the match with potentially serious injuries.

Writing in the Verdict, Sutton said: 'I am surprised that Jon Moss was conned by Wilfried Zaha into giving Crystal Palace that late penalty.

Despite that, the FA feel it did not meet the criteria for a clear and obvious case of diving and the Crystal Palace player will not face any punishment.

That City performed below the extraordinary level they have consistently achieved this season meant that they dropped points in the Premier League for only the second time in 21 games, and for the first time did not score.

The injury to Jesus could prompt City to bring forward plans to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, with the current necessity for firepower likely to outweigh the determination to wait until the summer to sign the Chilean on a free transfer.

"We were lucky in recent games". "That is not going to happen".

While Chelsea and Manchester United trail City by some distance, they may see a small light at the end of the tunnel in a title race that appeared to be all but over before the turn of the year.

"Maybe [it was penalty] - I didn't see it really well", he sad.

Asked after the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace whether he was planning a move for Sanchez, he explained: "He is a player from Arsenal and I think he is going to stay at Arsenal". "Today is completely different to 2004". In two days, we have another game (at home to Watford). I expect Watford to do similar, it's hard to pick up value in games when this is the expected effort from the away side.

Sergio Aguero will comeback into the side to replace Jesus and Sterling will look to continue his strong goal scoring form as the Citizens take on a struggling Watford team.

This was City's first away goalless draw in the Premier League since March 2016 against Norwich City, ending a run of 34 matches in which at least one goal was scored.

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