Guardiola's 18-game winning streak comes to an end
Selhurst: Manchester City's 18-game Premier League winning run was ended by a goalless draw at Crystal Palace, who missed out on the chance to become the first team to beat them in the league this season when they had an injury-time penalty saved.
It was a disappointing display from Pep Guardiola's side, but they still extended their lead at the top of the table to 14 points — the biggest gap between the leaders and the chasing pack at this stage of the season in top-flight history.
It could have been worse for City had goalkeeper Ederson not saved Luka Milivojevic's spot-kick after substitute Raheem Sterling had fouled Wilfried Zaha in the box in the 92nd minute.
However it could still prove a costly afternoon for City with Gabriel Jesus leaving the field injured and in tears in the first half, and the league's top assist-maker Kevin de Bruyne stretchered off after a heavy tackle from Jason Puncheon in the final minute.
It leaves City with only one fit senior striker in Sergio Aguero who replaced Jesus at Selhurst Park.
