Comments:

League position: 16th Crystal Palace were now the only Premier League team yet to keep a clean sheet in this season. Palace had now lost five consecutive Premier League games for the first time since February 2016. Connor Wickham had now scored four Premier League goals against Manchester City; more than any other opponent.

Comments:

League position: 2nd Manchester City had now lost only two of their last 20 Premier League games. They had now kept a clean sheet in only two of the 12 games so far in this Premier League season. Yaya Toure started his first Premier League game since a 4-0 win against Stoke City on 23 April 2016. He also scored two goals in a Premier League game for the first time since City's 4-2 win at Swansea City on 17 May 2015.
