Man City player ratings v Crystal Palace: One scores 9/10 and three get 5/10s after two-goal collapse - gallery

The Manchester City player ratings from Saturday's dramatic draw with Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City slipped up on Saturday afternoon after blowing a two-goal lead at home to Crystal Palace. Jack grealish put the Citizens ahead with a fine finish in the 24th minute, and Rico Lewis found the net after a darting run early in the second half. Palace then rallied back into the game when a long ball caught out Kyle Walker at the back, leading to a tap-in for Jean-Philippe Mateta, and that was just the start of the drama. City controlled the vast majority of the game, but a wild swing of the leg inside the box from Phil Foden gave the visitors the chance to equalise with one minute of stoppage time remaining on the clock.

Michael Olise obliged, and City saw their two-goal lead extinguished despite racking up 75% of possession and 19 shots. Here we rate the players from a disappointing draw for Pep Guardiola's men.
