Liverpool are still four points clear at the top of the Premier League after Crystal Palace beat Manchester City 3-2 at the Etihad, partly thanks to an Andros Townsend screamer.

City had led through Ilkay Gundogan but two goals in three minutes overturned the scores at Palace led 2-1 at the break.

Jeffrey Schlupp levelled on 33 and just two minutes later, Townsend lashed home this stunning long range volley:

A Luka Milivojevic penalty doubled Palace's lead on 51 as the league's 15th placed side threatened the biggest upset of the season so far.

Kevin De Bruyne gave City hope of on 85 but the visitors held on for the shock of the season so far.
