Crystal Palace 0-2 Manchester City:Sergio Aguero and Ferran Torres’ second-half strikes fire champions-in-waiting to win at Selhurst Park

Two quick-fire second-half goals see City beat Palace 2-0. It took City a while to grow into the game, and Jesus had a goal disallowed in the first half for offside.

It was Aguero that broke the deadlock when he lifted his shot over Guaita from a tight angle.

Just 83 seconds later, Torres had doubled their lead after Palace failed to clear their lines and he picked out the bottom corner.

The Argentine scored a goal to win the Premier League title before. He may just have done it again.

His famous 93rd-minute winner on the final day of the 2012 season saw Manchester City crowned champions for the first time in 44 years.

Aguero’s opener against Crystal Palace wasn’t anywhere near as dramatic as that unforgettable effort against QPR, and the runaway leaders still need Liverpool to win at Manchester United on Sunday to clinch the title, but his stunning strike was, at the very least, a spectacular reminder of his class.

He took a sublime touch to control Benjamin Mendy’s pass before then smashing the ball into the roof of the net to break the deadlock at Selhurst Park in sensational fashion.

The Argentine’s 258th City goal – more than anyone also in the club’s history – would serve as a fitting finale to a glorious, trophy-laden decade at the Etihad Stadium.

City have done what they needed to by winning and they’ll be keeping an eye on United’s game tomorrow as a loss for them will confirm their title win.

It’s a big week for them with the second leg of their Champions League semi-final against PSG.

Palace stay 13th and are winless in four as they look to turn it around against Sheffield United next weekend.
