Manchester City spilled two points in the dying seconds against Crystal Palace last night and Pep Guardiola wasn’t too happy about it.

Wilfried Zaha thumped down the left flank before crossing the ball into City’s box.

Fernandinho was the unlucky one, as the Brazilian scored an own-goal.

“The second goal is a mistake and we have to avoid it. It is just not possible Zaha can run and we allow it,” Guardiola said, quoting the Guardian.

“It was a decision. It was a wrong decision and we are going to solve it and improve it. In this situation we cannot let them run in this counterattack.”

Manchester City will have to improve rapidly because the Champions League tie with Real Madrid is approaching.
