Silva, De Bruyne orchestrate City's 5-0 win over Palace

Garth Crooks team of the week Gameweek 36

Kompany struck a well-taken goal to join David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Otamendi on the score sheet but said: "I'm happy but the happiest I will be is when I go through the interview area and nobody asks me about my fitness!"

David Silva opened the scoring in the opening minutes after a mistake by Martin Kelly.

City continued to dominate but had to wait until after the restart to double their advantage.

Captain Vincent Kompany converted a 49th minute assist from compatriot Kevin De Bruyne.

After relegated Sunderland had taken a surprise 2-0 victory at Hull, Fernando Llorente headed the solitary goal as Swansea held on to register a nervous victory and climb out of the bottom three for the first time since March.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola: "We are the best team in the Premier League to create clear, clear chances".

"So when you buy a guy, who's fast, you buy a player who's fast, so goals, you have to buy". What a bonus that the little Spaniard started. It put City into third - above Liverpool on goal difference. The bare minimum has almost been achieved; City need to get Champions League qualification sewn up, and then thoughts can turn to how they're going to improve next season.

"Hopefully United can focus on the Europa League and next season we shall see five English teams in Europe which would be awesome". "He made not a bad goal".

Teen's plea for free Wendy's nuggets sets retweet record
Instantly, the "nuggs for Carter" hashtag was born, and in a mere two days the tweet hit the one million retweet milestone. He won't, I'm guessing, get all the free stuff DeGeneres promised him if he lets her Twitter record stay intact.

Iheanacho who has been practically frozen out by coach Pep Guardiola came in as late substitute for Gabriel Jesus in the 84th minute. Four goals and two assists. Against Chelsea, we create more chances both here and at Stamford Bridge but in the boxes we are not good.

"It depends if you talk about emotions. The one against Man United will always be best", he added. You close your eyes and swing.

He would have been pleased that his side scored from their first attack, but not that they then passed up a series of first-half opportunities to add to that lead.

"But in reality I can vouch for him in the sense that I've been around a lot of top people in football and all of them had qualities, but he's really special". "We have two more games at home... one more than Liverpool. After that we were able to play without pressure".

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace might have to deal with the absence of Andros Townsend, who is an injury doubt after suffering what manager Sam Allardyce described as a "twinge" in his Achilles during training on Friday. It could have been 1-1.

"All five goals could have been avoided if we had defended properly". We need to be calm in some moments. They punished us heavily.

"That feeling - especially in the league, when there are a lot of long balls and for the referees it has to be a really important thing to make a foul - is important". We'll prepare as a group to give ourselves the best chance of winning. But our final third play let us down as well as our defensive display. "We don't want to be asking for anyone's help", Allardyce said.
