Man City Lose 2-1 to Crystal Palace


The UK football results last night (Monday 6 April) threw up a shocking outcome in the Premier League. Man City are now fourth behind Arsenal and Man Utd, respectively, after losing 2-1 away to Crystal Palace.

Pressure has been growing for Man City manager Manuel Pellegrini ever since he fell far behind Chelsea in the Premier League title race. Rumours have circulated that he will lose his job at the end of the season if Man City do not finish second. That is now a realistic prospect, as the Citizens are set to race rivals Man Utd this weekend.

Man City dominated 74% possession over the course of the game, yet could only create four attempts on target from 22 overall. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace created three on target from four. The Eagles led 2-0 for much of the game, with City scoring a 78th-minute consolation courtesy of Yaya Touré.
