Zaha scores as Crystal Palace shock Man City at Etihad
Crystal Palace upset 10-man Manchester City to spoil Pep Guardiola’s 200th Premier League match as manager at Etihad Stadium.
Palace went ahead inside six minutes as Wilfried Zaha pounced on Aymeric Laporte’s poor ball and exchanged passes with Conor Gallagher before scuffing beyond Ederson’s dive.
Laporte’s day worsened on the stroke of half-time, as he was sent off by referee Andre Marriner for denying Zaha a goalscoring opportunity by dragging down the Palace forward.
Gabriel Jesus saw a second-half equaliser chalked off by the video assistant referee for offside against Phil Foden before Gallagher sealed a deserved victory for the visitors by sweeping a fine finish in off the post late on.
