A good point and we rode our luck a bit but also had a few 1/2 chances to get a goal. I think in the early part of the season we might have conceded a late goal but today we held out well. Thought Ayew helped out a lot when he came on and to our credit the defending of set plays was much better ( the Laporte effort towards the end been the exception )
Kouyate and Gallagher were immense and Guaita pulled off a couple of great saves. Lets hope Everton have an equally tough game against Newcastle on Thursday.

How good was Tyrick Mitchell last night, he had Mahrez and Walker to shut out? Apart from the one that Mahrez ran onto in the box,he didnít get any views of our goal.

Absolutely agree.

My opinion on him has shifted from 'He looks a decent prospect' to 'he looks to be cutting it and improving far better/quicker than I expected' to 'he is actually a very good player and we could very well have a star in the making here'.

For both his and very selfishly our own sake, I very much hope we don't have an AWB situation of unearthed gem who leaves prematurely for a 'bigger' club only to see his development falter and an inevitable falling into obscurity. They say lightning doesn't strike twice but I feel we hadn't moved on from prime Ward and PvA was pretty unchallenged in the LB position for a while. Were we to have AWB still on the right of defence, with Mitchell on the left, we'd be absolutely laughing now. At least we have, very possibly, the better of the two still here... for now anyways.

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....

BBC red button: Unbelievable!

If anyone cares to check the red button on BBC News - the final paragraph is ď... frustrated their opponents although created little themselves going forwards themselves...Ē

It really is appalling and biased.

At the end of the game, a little girl Palace fan all in red and blue, canít have been more than six, ran on the pitch, ran up to de Bruyne and asked him for his autograph. Guess what he did? Took off his shirt and gave it to her. Now that is real class. Top man de Bruyne. What a gesture.

Now that was a pure class gesture . Fair play to him . As for the game it was a bit of a nailbiter , my smart***ch was going to blow up at one stage . Mitchel for man of the match for me, We could have actually one it but then again so could they have . Great performance all through the team . The only negative i can find is that we have made it easier for Scummerpool to catch City but hope City still win the league . Palace for the Cup !

Every player worked themselves into the ground last night and as Vieira said, we earned that little bit of luck. There was much to admire in the tactics as well, with Palace springing traps and forming almost a small cage around the most influential players at times. Mitchell often had to manage Mahrez on his own, but he did about as good a job as anyone has this season in stopping him. It was telling that players like Grealish began to lose their heads.

I have to give Kouyate motm for his astonishing Apocalypse Now performance in diving into the mud like he'd been shot on at least three occasions. It may have been genuine, but it definitely disrupted City and got inside their heads with frustration bubbling over. Aside from that though he bossed the centre of the pitch and City were forced to spend most of their attacks in the wide positions.

On a final point, I wonder what Pep actually said to Vicente after the final whistle, as he was definitely not congratulating him that's for sure. Vicente has a hilarious Manuel type response to criticism from referees and opposition players/managers with hands turned up, a shrug of the shoulders and a grimaced face as if to say "Que?"

A truly wonderful result against one of the best teams in the world.
We played with organisation, determination, grit,resilience and discipline and credit to Patrick Vieira,his coaching team and of course the players.

Man C of course had their chances but they haven't scored against us in both games this season.Since that 0-2 result in Manchester, Man C had scored in every PL game going into the game last night.In fact they have scored against every team this season except for us.

A fantastic effort from the players. To achieve 2 shutouts against that City team is a huge achievement in itself.

To get a result against teams such as City, you need to be on your game and have a little bit of luck too. So I think we thoroughly deserved a point.

I think Pep was having a go a V for his ' game management '. Maybe someone would like to have a word with him about the cynical tactical fouls that City get away with across the middle of the pitch.

Someone who watched the game on television said that Guardiola was not congratulating Guaita for his performance ! Clearly Pep was rattled and very disappointed with not taking all the points.

Huge performance.

What is really pleasing to see is that as well as dominating the ball against the lesser teams, we have now added some steel and a counterattacking threat against the big boys.

A couple of thoughts:

Playing short out the back didn't work today because of Foden. His role looked almost exclusively to stop MG an JA passing to each other. It stopped us settling, and forced JA to go long a lot, and under pressure. Mostly misplaced.

They/Viera decided that goal kicks were going to go long about 25 mins in and the game became less one sided, more scrappy and we could start to press a bit higher and impose ourselves.

Ayew still has a massive role in the squad, he is go good at transitioning under pressure. Made a big difference when he came on.

I struggle to understand the midfield without a playmaker (Macca, Hughes, or dare I say Luka). Neither Jeff, CK, or Connor really like to be on the ball and dictate play. They all have their own strengths, but playing the 3, we are resigned to not having any of the ball. When we do get it, its attack as quick as possible, vs building the play. Probably right for City, but not for others IMO.
