Manchester City plays out a goalless draw with Palace

Manchester City’s goalless draw at Crystal Palace on Sunday came at a heavy cost after they lost Gabriel Jesus to injury for at least a month.

The citizens came up just short of equalling the 19-match winning streak achieved by Bayern Munich, although the premier league leaders remain undefeated this season.

Jesus appeared to injure himself in the 11th minute when he lost his footing, but he soldiered on for another 12 minutes before going down again and being replaced by Sergio Aguero.

The citizens are also sweating on kevin de bruyne, who was stretchered off in stoppage time after being caught by a high challenge from Jason Puncheon.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola reiterated his belief that his side will not go through the premier league season unbeaten.

Crystal Palace will travel to St Mary’s stadium to face Southampton on 2nd January while Manchester City host Watford on the same evening.
