Sterling scored twice to guide his team to a ninth successive victory in the league.

The England forward, netted his goals in each half as Pep Guardiola’s men move closer to retaining the title if Liverpool slips against Chelsea at Anfield.

Sterling scored the first goal in the 15th minute and doubled it in the 63rd minute.

Man City had to endure some nervous moments in the final minutes as Palace captain Luka Milivojevic struck with a free-kick, but a last-minute goal from Gabriel Jesus, who was set up by De Bruyne, sealed the win.

The result puts City back on top of the table, but Liverpool would climb back to the top spot if they beat Chelsea, having played one game more than City.
