"Then I got to City and I actually met Raheem, and we'd talk a bit after training, and I thought, Wait, this guy seems really cool?"

A rare Palace foray forward left them exposed at the back and De Bruyne's sensational through ball allowed Sterling to break clear before side-footing the ball high beyond Vicente Guaita.

'I think Jose was a bit disappointed, but to be fair to him, I think he also understood that I absolutely needed to play.

One of Pep Guardiola's key players at Manchester City, his time at the Etihad has been a far cry from his spell at Chelsea, where he failed to make an impression as a young player.

Milner is right to point out that constant improvement and this season it has manifested itself as a more controlled Reds side, as opposed to the one that has thrived on chaos for the previous two seasons.

"And of course, defending this centre - Sarri-ball is not a coincidence, it's really hard to play against and there are some good reasons for it".

Kevin De Bruyne has revealed his desire for first-team football convinced him to ask Jose Mourinho for a departure from Chelsea, and described his current time at Manchester City as "nirvana".

'Oh yeah, I'll be playing next season, ' he told talkSPORT.

"Spurs were able to rest a number of key players against Huddersfield at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at the weekend and this is a hard game to call as a result of Sergio Aguero's early penalty miss in the first leg".

As a result the Belgian thinks City will need to win all of their remaining games, if they are to win the title. "Chelsea got more than double the price they paid for me, and I got into a much better situation at Wolfsburg".

"You could feel it, they are all on their toes, so let's try to do that seven more times and then we see what we get for it". "They said you're too quiet".

Palace managed to pull a goal back with nine minutes remaining through captain Luka Milivojević, who curled home a fine free-kick from the edge of the box.

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling celebrates scoring their second goal.

"When I was younger you always want to score your first opportunity and sometimes it doesn't happen like that", he said.

For this reason, Anderlecht fans are giving advice to chairman Marc Coucke, director of football Frank Arnesen and Michael Verschueren about the players they would prefer to see at the club next season.

"I was completely honest".

Doing so would require City to score at least three, something you would still not put it past them to do however. Sometimes you miss, you have to forget about it and go for the next one.
