44 min: Palace – somehow – still only trail by a single goal. Totally free of any Palace pressure, Gündogan leisurely flights a weighted pass into the six-yard box, where City are queuing up to hammer in a second. In the end, pinball ensues, with De Bruyne whacking the ball goalwards and Palace get off lightly, by conceding just a corner. The simplicity with which City arrived into the Palace box summed up what has been a dreadful half as far as Roy Hodgson’s side are concerned. Manchester City are cruising.
