That's all from me but stick with us for coverage of that all important match between Liverpool and Chelsea, next.


That's the final whistle and it's Crystal Palace 1-3 Manchester City who will, for at least the next couple of hours, go top of the table.


Three minutes of added time to be played.


GOAL! Jesus scores just as Palace look to be putting the pressure on. He's unarked on the far corner of the box and slots the ball in the bottom right corner. Arguably offside, but it will stand.


An as we suspected, Stones comes on now for Sane.


Pep Guardiola looks like he's going to take a more defensive option for the closing minutes of the game as he looks to be bringing on John Stones and we believe it will be Sane who makes way.


A substitution for Palace as Bakary Sako comes on for McArthur.


GOAL TO PALACE! Milivojevic strikes straight through the wall and into the back of the net. Can Palace take a point? It's Palace 1-2 City.


James McArthur is brought down by Gundogan on the edge of the box and a free kick is given. Milivojevic will take it from just inside the D - AND IT'S IN!


Andros Townsend comes off now to be replaced by Max Meyer.


Sterling has the ball in the box again but he's flooded by Palace players and passes back to Gundogan, who fires over the bar.


Another substitution for Manchester City as Gabriel Jesus comes on to replace Aguero - who will not break his Selhurst Park goal drought today.


Palace have been too slow to react to passes today. A lot of loose balls flying around this afternoon.


Benteke recieves the ball in the box and he gets his right foot to it, but it doesn't look like it quite connects properly and there's not enough on it. Ederson scoops it up.


Dann plays the ball through to Benteke, but the offside flg is up and we remain Palace 0-2 City at Selhurst Park.


A substitution now as Bernardo Silva replaces David Silva.


GOAL! It's Sterling again who takes David Silva's cross from the edge of the six yard box with his left foot and finds the bottom far corner of the goal.


A free kick is given to City in the defensive half after a foul on Laporte


Palace enjoy a spell of posession and look a little more dangerous so far this half, but it's a terrible ball from Milivojevic that sees the ball go out of play.


Martin Kelly looks to be in a bit of pain after he slides in on the ball, but he's back on his feet again.


Sergio Agüero has a shot blocked from the rigth side of the box.


Palace play the ball forward but Benteke comes down and is unable to make the most of it. Ederson comes out of the goal to scoop the loose ball up.


We're back at Selhurst Park where the score is Palce 0-1 City as we begin the second half.


Palace 0-1 City.

And at half-time I leave you with this astonishing fact...


Zaha isn't happy about de Bruyne's clip around his ankles as he runs with the ball. Free kick to Palace, but the whistle blows shortly after.


Two minutes of added time to be played here.


A bit of a scrabble there in the Palace box as City players flood them with shots. It's de Bruyne's attempt that is stopped and a corner is conceded.


Palace manage to get the ball down the City end of the pitch, but there's no one there to deal with it.


City look to widen the gap between them and the home side, but the offside flag is up for David Silva.


van Aanholt concedes a corner with a really terrible attempt at clearance that could almost have been an own-goal.


Now it's de Bruyne getting shirty with Aguero who fails to pick up his cross into the box.


Bit of argey-bargey with the ref here as David Silva doth protest too much that he did not foul (he did, says the ref).


Not sure what Milivojevic was hoping to achieve there as he plays the ball into the box. There's no one there to receive it, though presumably he was hoping Kouyate might find it.


Gundogan takes a corner for City, Benteke clears and it's Sane who picks it up.


A good interception by Townsend there, audacious even, as he runs between two City players to steal and go on a lightning paced counter attack.


Benteke finally makes his first contribution... as he finds Townsend on the right wing. Towbsend plays the ball forward and Kouyate tries to eliminate the inteference of Laporte by fouling him.


Kouyate makes his first contribution as he picks out Zaha who looks to go on a swift counter-attack, but he loses possession.


Apologies, what seems to have happened there is Schlupp has collided with Vincent Kompany, which has led to injury for the Palace man.


Kouyate comes on to take the place of Schlupp.

Raheem Sterling of Manchester City (C) celebrates

But hang on, Schlupp is leaving the pitch now, by the looks of things.


GOAL! Sterling gives the visitors the lead as he runs the ball in from the edge of the centre third and finds the net. 1-0 to City.


SHOT! Sterling takes his first shot, from a cross by David Silva. He's right in front of the goal and he should have scored that, really, but it's just wide.


Gundogan takes a corner for City and Scott Dann clears it, but the threat lingers.


There's some activity on the other side of the pitch as Palace look like they mean to score. It's Milivojevic who shoots from the edge of the box but it's too much and sails over the bar.


There's a lot of long passes going on as Manchester City look for a way to unlock the Palace defence.


And we're off at Selhurst Park.


And here's a bit of footage of Raheem Sterling warming up. Has "Raz" always been a thing?


For the uninitiated, I suggest you search "Andros Townsend Man City" on Twitter immediately. What. A. Goal.


Back to these guys, and in their last five head-to-head matches, City and Palace are even Stevens. They have both won twice, lost twice, and drawn once. And you'll no doubt remember that absolute screamer Androw Townsend scored against City in their last meeting...


If Chelsea were to beat Liverpool today, Chelsea would go third. If they lose, Arsenal have an opportunity to overtake them tomorrow and slot into fourth place on goal difference. BUT... It's also worth pointing out, today's match between Liverpool and Chelsea is their 34th, while City's today and Arsenal's tomorrow is their 33rd. Are you all still with me?


City are in second place, just two excruciating points behind Liverpool, so a win today would put them back at the top of the table - at least until later on today. There’s a crucial game later between Liverpool and Chelsea, which could just shake up that top six even more.


Palace are currently in 13th place in the league with 39 points. Should they win today they would leapfrog over West Ham in 11th place on goal difference.


City come into today’s match with six league wins on the bounce, Palace’s fortunes are a little more mixed having won three and lost two in their last five.


A couple of changes to the Palace side today, by Roy Hodgson. James Tomkins is replaced by Scott Dann and Michy Batshuayi is replaced by Christian Benteke, who is starting for the first time since early February.


Benjamin Mendy is making his first start for City since November as one of four changes to todays’ starting XI by Pep Guardiola. Kevin de Bruyne, Vincent Kompany and Leroy Sane also make the cut.

Subs: Ward, Meyer, Kouyate, Hennessey, J Ayew, Batshuayi, Sako // Manchester City: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Mendy, Gundogan, Silva, Sterling, Aguero, Sane.
