Photos: What happened the last time Manchester City played Crystal Palace

Man City Stadium Five

Manchester City travel to Crystal Palace on Monday with the return of the Premier League.

City are looking to close the gap on first place Chelsea when the Premier League returns this weekend.

On Monday, they head to London to face Crystal Palace, in a game that could see them keep up their title fight, or even potentially lose their place in the top four.

By the time of the game, City could be in fourth place, if Manchester United and Arsenal win over the weekend, and Manuel Pellegrini’s men will be hoping to repeat the feat from the last time they met the Eagles this season.

Palace were still under the management of Neil Warnock when they travelled to the Etihad, and were downed in a routine victory for City.

David Silva netted twice, before Yaya Toure killed off the game with the third goal inside the final 10 minutes.

It was the penultimate game before Warnock’s sacking, and City’s challenge will likely be harder this time round as Alan Pardew has improved the team.

Regardless, City will be looking for a repeat scoreline as they head to Selhurst Park, and we take a look at some of the memorable moments from that 3-0 back in December.
