Manchester City 2 - 2 Crystal Palace (Dec-16-2023) Premier League Highlights

Michael Olise's 95th-minute equaliser from the penalty spot earned Crystal Palace a 2-2 draw at Manchester City, denting their hosts' title hopes with a third consecutive home draw.

Olise stepped up from 12 yards to send Ederson the wrong way after Jean-Philippe Mateta was fouled by a clumsy Phil Foden challenge, as City were denied their first home league victory since November 4 - having won all of their previous 23.

They had appeared home and hosed nine minutes into the second half after Rico Lewis' first Premier League goal handed them a two-goal lead, adding to a fine strike from Jack Grealish midway through the opening period.

Mateta ignited hopes of a grandstand finish with a quarter of an hour remaining when he slid in to turn home Jeffrey Schlupp's cross from close range.

But it wasn't until the Frenchman was caught by Foden deep into added time that they looked like continuing their fine recent run at the Etihad, when Paul Tierney pointed to the spot and Olise retained his composure to deal City another blow in the title race.
