Roy Hodgson 'proud' as Crystal Palace stop Man City juggernaut

Belgium global De Bruyne, who has been instrumental to City's success this season, suffered the injury after a collision with Palace's Jason Puncheon in stoppage time at Selhurst Park and left the pitch on a stretcher, with his right leg in a brace.

"The problem is one day's rest - it's cost us two players (Scott Dann and Jason Puncheon) and it might have cost them (City) two as well (Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne)".

De Bruyne was later seen being helped down the touchline back to the dressing room by City's medical staff.

For a 0-0 draw, Manchester City's visit to Crystal Palace was not short of drama.

"To be focused after 17 games in a row is not easy but we did it [against Newcastle]. I don't know what will happen with him, maybe in the coming days, but we're lucky". "But I don't know what happens in the future".

The draw brought City's 18-game winning streak to an end, but Ederson's stoppage-time penalty save to deny Luka Milivojevic did preserve City's unbeaten Premier League run this season, which now stands at 21 games.

The penalty incident itself was a controversial one, with the initial contact on Wilfried Zaha by Raheem Sterling outside the box, before the former appeared to dive in the box, but referee Jon Moss awarded the spot kick. "But if the referee decided it, it's OK. They are a good team", Guardiola told BT Sport.

Despite noticeable improvements since taking charge, the south Londoners remain in a precarious position under Hodgson sitting just one point above the bottom three following Thursday's 3-2 defeat to Arsenal.

'What I'm seeing now is a player who still has the same level of ability, the same pace to be able to beat a man but also a more mature individual, ' he added.
