Andros Townsend wonder goal stuns Manchester City

Andros Townsend's screamer gave Palace the lead
While this defeat means they will trail Liverpool by four points on Christmas Day - compared to the same time previous year when they were 13 points clear at the top - it would clearly be foolish to write them off, especially before the halfway stage of the season.
Gundogan was involved alongside Bernardo Silva in carving through Palace for Leroy Sane to shoot wastefully into the side-netting in the 10th minute.
Palace looked home, and Betfair punters backed them in to [1.08] for the win but a late Kevin De Bruyne goal caused panic everywhere and the home side had their chances to register a third.
The Germany midfielder showed his countryman how it was done when he eased into the box to head home Fabian Delph's searching cross.
It took Schlupp about five minutes to make up for his lapse in defensive concentration as Palace grabbed a shock equaliser from the Eagles' first effort on goal. We have to avoid, it we can not concede this kind of penalty.
City's response was disjointed before Sane cracked the outside of the right post with a 77th-minute free-kick.
Gabriel Jesus missed a stoppage-time chance when he headed over a De Bruyne cross from a promising position but City were left to taste their first home league loss since the Manchester derby on April 7.

City now lie four points behind Liverpool at the top of the Premier League but Guardiola was keen to remind onlookers that there is a long way to go yet in the race for the title. Now they are six points behind us. Wow.
Townsend will rightfully hog the headlines but Wan-Bissaka did much to enhance his burgeoning reputation, keeping the in-form Sane on a short leash and making a succession of fearless challenges.
Roy Hodgson's Palace had picked up just one point from their last six away games and had not won at City since 1990.
"We had just made some changes and chose to play with two strikers to try to get back in the game, then straight away we give away a penalty and a third goal", he added.
Premier League's Matchday 18 is almost over after eight more games on Saturday. "So how can we think about anything else other than just winning our games and getting as many points as we can?"
United, with Paul Pogba back in the fold, poured forward in a free-spirited manner rarely seen under Mourinho and Lingard's last-minute goal ensured they netted five in a league match for the first time since Ferguson's final match in charge in 2013.
