Crystal Palace v Man City, Premier League

Crystal Palace v Man City, Premier League

Palace defended reasonably well but were probably lucky to end the first half just a goal down, though City would no doubt have been left wondering if they might later live to regret missed opportunities.

City can not afford any slip-ups with Liverpool two points clear at the top of the table - and Guardiola said he is not concerned about the pressure growing on his players as they fight for the Quadruple.

Manchester City have won five away Premier League games against London sides this season, their highest ever number of victories in the capital within a single top-flight campaign.

Vunipola defends Australia's Folau in anti-gay row
Last weekend, he broke the Super Rugby try-scoring record, racking up his 60th in the Waratahs' defeat to the Blues. England global Billy Vunipola has offered a defence of Israel Folau's latest controversial social media posts.

"Especially in the second half it was under control". If Liverpool can overcome Chelsea this afternoon, they face a much more favourable run a the season comes to a close. "There are games when we concede a goal and we are not there but in this case we conceded a goal and nothing happened".

Palace introduced Max Meyer for Andros Townsend - and they found a route back into the game when James McArthur was fouled and Milivojevic thumped the free kick home.

Guardiola also called for the performance to be viewed within the context of City's relentless form over the past two seasons. Subs: Stones 5, Bernardo Silva 6, Gabriel Jesus 7, Muric.

Tesla Model 3 lease program opens door to future ride-hailing network
Tesla announced that Autopilot will now be standard on all Tesla vehicles (with the exception of the $35,000 car). Anyone looking to buy the "Standard Range" Model 3 will now have to do so at a Tesla store.

Sergio Agüero has failed to score in each of his six Premier League appearances at Selhurst Park (15 shots, 0 goals) - only at Anfield (7 apps) has the Argentine visited more often in the competition without finding the net.

It looked like a stroll for City until Luka Milivojevic converted with a low free-kick from the edge of the box in the 81st minute.

Both Manchester United and Spurs have won their respective Premier League games on Saturday and with Arsenal playing Watford on Monday, the Gunners are more or less certain to pick up all three points.

May, back in Parliament, tries to defend Brexit extension to skeptical lawmakers
She urged MPs to "reflect" on ways to resolve the deadlock over Brexit during their Easter recess. Like many things related to Brexit, the extension was a messy compromise.

But Palace showed a flicker of attacking life soon afterwards, Milivojevic crossing and Christian Benteke heading down before City hacked clear. Arguably offside, but it will stand.
