Sterling had missed an absolute sitter just minutes earlier as put his effort wide when given an almost open goal to aim for, but the England international didn’t fluff his lines at the second time of asking.

As seen in the video below, De Bruyne produced a wonderful assist as he played a brilliantly weighted through-ball into Sterling’s path as he broke in behind the Palace backline, and despite seemingly going too wide, he produced a world-class finish to break the deadlock.

Both players deserve real credit for this goal as it’s this level of quality that will undoubtedly make the difference as Man City continue to pursue a quadruple this season.
