Manchester City remarkable winning run came to an end against Crystal Palace as Roy Hodgson side held the Premier League leaders to a 0-0 draw.
Pep Guardiola had guided his outfit to 18 victories in a row in the league since a 1-1 draw with Everton back in August but could not find a way through against a well-drilled Palace side.
It was the first time in what’s been a tremendous season for the club that they’ve failed to find the back of the net in a domestic match and, in truth, clear chances were few and far between.
As Manchester City failed to pick up three points, Guardiola fell short of matching a European record of 19 consecutive wins, that he’d set with Bayern Munich in the 2013/14 season, while also failing to break Chelsea’s Premier league record of 12 away wins on the spin.
They did, however, cling on to hopes of matching Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ by going a whole season unbeaten but have Ederson to thank as he saved an injury time penalty against Luka Milivojevic.
It was a frustrating game for Manchester City, who sit 14 points clear of second-placed Chelsea, with Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane arguing, Gabriel Jesus leaving the pitch in tears due to an injury and De Bruyne being stretchered off.
Despite the disappointment of failing to enter the record books once more, City do remain in control of the Premier League title race and are still battling on four fronts.
