EPL: Crystal Palace Defeat Manchester City in 5-Goal Thriller

Crystal Palace got the better side of Manchester City today, as they won 2-3 in thrilling encounter at the Etihad stadium.

The final score must have stunned many pundits and fans as goals from J. Schlupp, A. Townsend, andL. Milivojević were enough to seal a vital win for Crystal Palace.

Nobody would have been more pleased with the final result than Liverpool fans, as the reds are now 4 points clear at the top of the English Premier League table.

Guardiola’s side looked to be cruising after Gundogan headed home the opening goal but two first-half goals in the space of three minutes from Schlupp and Townsend turned the game on its head, the latter being a contender for goal of the season.

Milivojevic’s penalty after the restart following Walker’s foul on Meyer allowed the Eagles to extend their lead, although a dramatic finish came after De Bruyne’s cross sneaked in at the far post. In the end though, it’s a win for Palace that could have a huge influence in the chase for the Premier League title.
