Premier League: 3 Reasons Why Manchester City Beat Crystal Palace 3-1 At Selhurst Park
#2 Individual brilliance from the Cityzens
It was a delightful afternoon for City's forwards. Although Manchester City's no.10 Sergio Aguero failed to gift a delicious outcome, the others on the same line did the job for Pep Guardiola.
City's midfield superstar, Kevin De Bruyne served a brilliant through ball to Raheem Sterling, who made a blizzarding run towards Palace's goal. In spite of having pressure from an opponent defender, the English jet finished the job single-handedly.
Sterling showcased an example of the presence of mind as the winger made a free run towards the far post. Leroy Sane found the existence of Sterling inside the box and distributed the perfect ball to him. The Probationer just tapped the ball into the nets.
Kevin De Bruyne made the second assist at the 90th minute of the match when the Belgian found the space and provided a through ball to Gabriel Jesus, who snatched all three points from the away soil by scoring the last goal of the match following a counter-attack.
