A stunning goal from Yaya Toure was not enough to prevent Manchester City losing their crucial Premier League clash with Crystal Palace. Goals from Glenn Murray and Jason Puncheon meant that Manuel Pellegrini’s side remain in fourth place, nine points behind Premier League leaders, Chelsea.

Here’s how the City players got on:
GK- Joe Hart 6
Should have done better for the free-kick that doubled Palace’s lead, when his positioning meant he couldn’t get across quick enough. But he made some good saves, and his distribution was excellent.
RB- Bacary Sagna 6
Offered some nice runs down the line, but failed to make much of an impact upon the game.
CB- Vincent Kompany 6
Struggled to deal with Glenn Murray for most of the game, and looks a shell of the player who lifted their first Premier League title.
CB- Martin Demichelis 7
Should have done better for the first goal when Murray got away from him, but is proving to be City’s best defender.
