The winning goal came only in the last half of the second half, scored by Erling Haaland, in a rare match in which only Kevin De Bruyne was among the reserves.
Willing not to give Pep Guardiola’s side an easy game life, Palace have done a fantastic job in defences.
With close lines and little space for City’s midfielders, the hosts managed to curb the attacking momentum of the Manchester side in the match.
When the Premier League vice-captains had their chance, goalkeeper Guaita worked his miracles to keep the score unchanged.
In addition to the well-adjusted defensive system, Palace still had a slightly inspired day from Haaland, who arrived with a good chance made by Ake.
Patrick Vieira’s defensive “bolt” worked until the end of the second half when Michael Ulis lost it all. Oblivious, Number 7 tried to disarm Ilkay Gündogan inside the area and committed a ridiculous penalty.
Even without the brightness of other matches, Haaland was calm in taking the ball and hitting Guaita without any chances of defense, scoring the winning goal for the nationals, his 28th in this edition of the English Premier League.
