Manchester City ‘s 18-game winning run in the Premier League has come to an end as Crystal Palace held the Citizens to a goalless draw in Sunday’s clash at Selhurst Park.

City were attempting to win their 20th league match of the season, but it was Palace that ultimately passed up the best opportunity to claim all three points as Luka Milivojevic missed a 92nd-minute penalty for the home side.

Milivojevic took the spot kick, but the midfielder saw his effort saved by Ederson. City looked to break straight away, but Jason Puncheon floored De Bruyne in an incident that ultimately saw both players stretchered off the field.

The point means that City are now 14 points clear of second-placed Chelsea, while Palace remain just outside of the relegation zone in 17th position.

Palace (4-3-3): Hennessey; Fosu-Mensah, Tomkins, Dann (Kelly 20′), Van Aanholt; Cabaye (Puncheon 75′, Lee 96′), Milivojevic, Riedewald; Zaha, Benteke, Townsend

Man City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Mangala, Otamendi, Danilo; Fernandinho, Gundogan (Sterling 57′), De Bruyne; B.Silva (Toure 81′), Jesus (Aguero 23’), Sane
