90’
Yellow card for Toure for a poor foul on Milivojevic.
90’
PENALTY! Palace have a penalty late on after Zaha is brought down by Sterling after bursting into the box.
90’
MISSED! Milivojevic steps up to take the penalty and he goes down the middle of the goal, allowing Ederson to kick the ball away. Poor penalty.
90’
Yellow card for Kelly as he put the counter attack from City to an abrupt halt with a cynical foul.
90’
Puncheon and De Bruyne are injured and are both stretchered off after a poor challenge by Puncheon on the Belgian. Only Palace have a change remaining as Lee comes on for the home side.
90’
Full time at Selhurst Park and it ends the way we started at 0-0. Palace had a great chance to take the points late in the game with a penalty, but Ederson came away as City's hero to keep the Sky Blues unbeaten at the turn of the year.
85’
Nearly a mistake at the back for Palace as a Fosu-Mensah clearance on a Sane cross is mishit and nearly goes straight to Aguero on the penalty spot, but the touch from the Argentinian goes out for a goal kick.
82’
Substitution for City as Toure is on to replace Silva.
81’
BLOCK! Walker does brilliantly to beat Townsend on the right flank before cutting back for De Bruyne to shoot first time. The effort from the Belgian was on target and looked to be going in, but it's well blocked by Kelly.
79’
Yellow card for Aguero for dissent shown to the referee after he was asked to retreat to 10 yards for a free kick.
78’
CHANCE! Palace have a few waves of attacks which ends with Zaha playing the ball in low from the right. The ball goes all the way to the far post with Townsend waiting and he seemingly must score, but somehow skews his shot high and wide.
76’
Substitution for Palace as Cabaye is replaced by Puncheon.
74’
Some good pressure from Palace up front in the last few minutes. The hosts haven't been able to get forward much in the second half, but are denied on two occasions by some solid City defending as they attempted to get the ball into the box.
70’
De Bruyne looks to do it on his own after receiving a pass into feet in midfield before turning and shooting first time. His effort deflects off of Kelly before going through to Hennessey, who saves comfortably.
68’
The free kick on the edge of the box is wasted once again by City as De Bruyne strikes into the wall for the second time in the half. Palace attempt to break through Zaha, but he's quickly stopped in his tracks.
67’
Yellow card for Cabaye after he brought down Sane with a trip on the edge of the box as the German looked to burst forward.
64’
SAVE! City deliver the ball into the box from the right hand side and it finds its way to the far post where Sane strikes for goal first time. Hennessey does brilliantly, however, to get across and make himself big to deny the German.
62’
CHANCE! Sterling and Silva work the ball well on the right, allowing the latter to get in behind and provide a looped cross for Aguero to head towards goal. The Argentinian struggles to generate any power, however, and it's easily saved.
60’
Bit desperate now from City as a few passes just outside the Palace box ends with Fernandinho shooting from a very long way out and the ball goes way over the crossbar.
58’
Substitution for City as Gundogan is replaced by Sterling.
57’
CHANCE! Gundogan and De Bruyne play a quick one-two on the edge of the box, which allows the German to curl the ball towards the far corner but his effort goes just wide of Hennessey's goal.
56’
City have come out and started the second half well. Palace have struggled to have any of the ball, with any attempts at a counter attack being stopped immediately. No real chances so far, as City have wasted a couple of free kick opportunities.
52’
Some good play between Fernandinho and Silva as the two link up to put the Brazilian midfielder away and into the right side of the box. He gets to the byline before looking to cut the ball back, but it's well defended away for a corner.
49’
Yellow card for van Aanholt after the full back made a late challenge to bring down Silva as he looked to run down the wing.
48’
City have have a free kick from 25-30 yards out that De Bruyne looks to strike at goal. It's similar to Sane's effort in the first half as it goes straight into the wall before Palace can clear.
46’
We're back underway for the second half at Selhurst Park with neither side making any changes at the break.
45’
CHANCE! Not the easiest of opportunities for Aguero after the Argentinian was found with a cut back from the byline by De Bruyne. Aguero met the ball at the near post and attempted to guide it towards goal, but the effort is wide of the mark.
45’
Half time at Selhurst Park as it remains goalless at the break. City have threatened and could have taken the lead early through Silva, but the hosts have grown into the game well and it's all to play for in the second half. 0-0.
42’
It's been a bit sloppy from a City side that has been free flowing this season. De Bruyne and Sane have been the two culprits in the last few minutes and it's resulted in the two becoming increasingly frustrated. Palace have done brilliantly so far to lim
37’
Palace look dangerous on the counter attack as they look to move forward with pace. Both sides look threatening using their respective approaches, but neither has been able to penetrate the other defence and test the goalkeepers.
33’
CHANCE! Palace have a corner which allows them to get the big men forward. Cabaye whips it into the box and Benteke rises highest to get his head onto it, but he makes poor contact as the ball glances off his head and goes well wide.
29’
WOODWORK! Aguero bursts towards the edge of the box from midfield before working an opportunity to shoot with his right foot. His effort takes a wicked deflection and loops past Hennessey, but the Argentinian is denied by the post.
26’
City have a corner which is whipped in. The ball evades a number of men at the near post before going goalwards off the heel of Tomkins. Hennessey is able to get down smartly, however, and make a comfortable save.
23’
Substitution for Man City as Jesus is replaced by Aguero after picking up an injury earlier in the half. It could well be very serious with the Brazilian in tears as he leaves the pitch.
22’
CHANCE! City work the ball well which allows Jesus to twist and turn on the edge of the box and shoot towards goal, but the effort is weak and Hennessey can get down easily to save.
20’
City have an excellent chance with a free kick on the edge of the area. De Bruyne and Sane stand over it and it's the latter that strikes towards goal, but it goes straight into the wall before it's crossed in and claimed by Hennessey.
19’
Substitution for Palace as Kelly comes on to replace Dann, who is being stretchered off.
16’
Yellow card for Dann for a cynical foul on de Bruyne on the edge of the Palace box. Dann is down and requires treatment, with the stretcher being brought onto the field as it looks like he won't be able to continue.
13’
CHANCE! Palace have a free kick in right midfield which is delivered by Cabaye. City header away easily, but van Aanholt gets to the ball just outside the box and sees his deflected effort at goal saved well by Ederson.
11’
We have an extended break in play as Jesus is down and requires treatment after a slip whilst making a challenge.
10’
CHANCE! Hennessey plays a long ball that has Benteke running after it. Ederson comes out on the cover and has a mix up with Mangala on the edge of the box, allowing Benteke to retrieve the ball and shoot, but his effort is blocked by Mangala.
7’
Palace have looked to press high in the opening minutes to limit the amount of time City have on the ball. It's an effective press at the moment but City are doing well to pass the ball in tight areas as they look for an opening.
3’
CHANCE! Sane gets down the left before holding the ball up and laying it off for Danilo to cross. The ball in finds Silva at the far post and the Portuguese midfielder brings the ball down before shooting, but his effort is wide.

City make three changes of their own to the side that beat Newcastle 1-0. Kompany is injured and is replaced by Mangala, whilst Sterling and Aguero go out for Sane and Jesus.
0’
City are looking to equal the record for consecutive league victories with a win today. The visitors will be confident as they've beaten Palace 5-0 in their last two meetings.
0’
Palace sit one place above the drop zone, but only on goal difference. Their unbeaten run came to an end in midweek against Arsenal, but any points would be seen as a good result today.
