Guardiola eyes Sanchez after Jesus injury

Guardiola eyes Sanchez after Jesus injury

Palace battled admirably against a star-filled side averaging almost three goals a game and had to overcome its own injury loss - Palace captain Scott Dann also left the match on a stretcher after an earlier foul on De Bruyne - as well as City's sustained second-half pressure.

"We will recover one or two players who were unable to play today before the Southampton game, but after an effort like this you'd wish we could make the amount of changes that Manchester City feel they can always make when you look at the quality of the players they have who aren't playing".

"With Kevin we were lucky". It is the same.

As City broke out on a counterattack off Milivojevic's saved penalty, De Bruyne was chopped down by a nasty tackle from behind by Palace midfielder Jason Puncheon.

Asked whether City will make a move when the transfer window reopens on January 1, Guardiola said: "I don't know". That's the "culture". Everybody's diving.

"They [the authorities] know what they have to do", Guardiola added, as he confirmed he hadn't spoken to the FA on the issue.

"At a moment like this, it's better to focus on how well we played and give the players an enormous pat on the back".

While Chelsea and Manchester United trail City by some distance, they may see a small light at the end of the tunnel in a title race that appeared to be all but over before the turn of the year. But there are limits.

"We were lucky (with challenges) in previous games". It is why it is so nice here.

But the previously sensational Belgian's set-pieces were off colour - only one of six deliveries was unsafe, and his passing accuracy (80%) was less than any other starting City player. "Protect all the players please from situations that are risky". Sometimes football is faster and the actions, the players don't want to hurt the opponent. They have already punished Oumar Niasse and Manuel Lanzini but Zaha's dive was the worst I have seen this season'.

Guardiola now potentially has a greater selection issue in attack than at any point this season, especially with David Silva still out due to personal reasons.

Writing in the Verdict, Sutton said: 'I am surprised that Jon Moss was conned by Wilfried Zaha into giving Crystal Palace that late penalty.
