@Mindfulness Palace was disaster today. What is nothing is nothing. I had feeling that Fernandinho won all the duels in midfield. Stealing the ball really all the time, while Sane was simply too quick. I really like this player. I think that he will become even better in next years.

Palace were always going to get swamped today. First of all, a really good performance from City - one of their best this season and Pep was clearly pleased. Palace had Martin Kelly and Jefferey Schlupp at centre-back, Kelly is ok alongside a leader centre-back like Sakho but struggles without a good partner. This was the first time in Schlupp's career he played at centre-back!!! Palace are not a ball retention team at the best of times but we are better when Cabaye is fit and playing (a rarity these days). Too many individuals underperformed for Palace today but I wont be too critical as our destiny is still in our hands and must keep faith that the team will bounce back for key home game V Hull next week.

Sane really good, Fernandinho excellent, De Bruyne incredible - his anticipation and positional awareness is top level.

Does anyone else think that Chelsea could give Middlesbrough a battering tonight? I just can't see Chelsea slipping up after Tottenham dropped points. Strange things happen in the title race all the time but this Chelsea side is so disciplined under Conte. I can see a 2-0 win and the Blues moving to within one win of the title.
