Citizens shake off midweek stalemate to trash Palace

Manchester City moved top of the Premier League by thrashing a lacklustre Crystal Palace side 4-0.

After a midweek 0-0 stalemate at the Etihad where they drew against Everton, midfielder Fabian Delph gave them the lead with a long-range drive that squirmed under Wayne Hennessey.

Striker Sergio Aguero doubled the advantage with an effort that deflected in off the head of Scott Dann.

Aguero finished off a sublime team move and David Silva added a fourth, with Palace winless in five league games.

The Eagles could have gone ahead in the first couple of minutes but defender Damien Delaney headed straight at Joe Hart when free inside the area.

Yohan Cabaye went close late on with an effort that flew narrowly wide, but Palace have now failed to score in their past five league games.

The Blues have not been beaten in the league since their 2-1 defeat at Arsenal and stay top of the table with a superior goal difference, pending the result when joint table toppers Leicester City travel away to resurgent Aston Villa and Arsenal, play away to bogey team, Stoke
