Manchester City players gave everything in loss to Crystal Palace - Guardiola

Manchester City players gave everything in loss to Crystal Palace - Guardiola

TUKO.co.kepreviously had reported that City suffered a 3-2 defeat to Palace on Saturday at the Etihad leaving the Citizens four points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool at Christmas. Kyle Walker was judged to have brought down Max Meyer in the box and the visitors were awarded a penalty which Luka Milivojevic dispatched to the back of the net.

"We can not concede the penalty we conceded", said Guardiola. We have to try and avoid it. Football is like this.

Kevin De Bruyne pulled one back late on, but it proved too late in the day and Palace held on. Three shots on goal and three goals.

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol says he is confident that Liverpool won't falter and insists the title race will depend on what Manchester City are capable of doing.

Chelsea were also beaten at Stamford Bridge for the first time under Maurizio Sarri as Vardy fired home James Maddison's pass to give the Foxes their first victory in five games. Jürgen Klopp's team are still unbeaten, and if they remain so after visiting Manchester City on 3 January a first league title since 1990 will be in their sights.

"The match changed after the goal", said Sarri, who believes making up an 11-point gap on Liverpool is "impossible".

It was the first time United had scored five goals since Sir Alex Ferguson's final game in charge in 2013.

Sarri questioned his players' "mental strength" and admitted he had no explanation for their "confusion" after Jamie Vardy put Leicester ahead in the 51st minute. "We have to recover mentally and recover our physicality", Guardiola summed up.

"And before that it looked like they would never ever lose a game, but I see them just winning this one to stay on the coat tails of Liverpool".

Guardiola did give Palace credit for a well-organised defensive shift, even if he was a little dismissive in suggesting they only crossed the halfway line on three occasions and managed to score each time.

"We want Mesut like today", said Emery.

"It's complicated but we fight until the last second".

The Ralph Hasenhuttl revolution continued as Southampton beat Huddersfield 3-1 at the John Smith's Stadium.

Bournemouth won 2-0 at home to Brighton, and Newcastle's home game with Fulham ended 0-0.
