Manchester City fail to break Chelsea record & fall short of Bayern Munich streak with Crystal Palace draw

Manchester City ‘s remarkable winning run came to an end against Crystal Palace as Roy Hodgson‘s side held the Premier League leaders to a 0-0 draw.Pep Guardiola had guided his outfit to 18 victories in a row in the league since a 1-1 draw with Everton back in August but could not find a way through against a well-drilled Palace side.It was the first time in what’s been a tremendous season for the club that they’ve failed to find the back of the net in a domestic match and, in truth, clear chances were few and far between.As they failed to pick up three points, Guardiola fell short of matching a European record of 19 consecutive wins, that he’d set with Bayern Munich in the 2013/14 season, while also failing to break Chelsea’s Premier league record of 12 away wins on the spin.They did, however, cling on to hopes of matching Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ by going a whole season unbeaten but have Ederson to thank as he saved an injury time penalty against Luka Milivojevic.It was a frustrating…

Jabulani better than League Cup balls – Toure

English football chiefs on Wednesday defended the ball used in the League Cup after Manchester City’s Yaya Toure said it was worse than the much-maligned Jabulani used in the 2010 World Cup.
City and Championship club Wolves played with the Mitre Delta ball in Tuesday’s League Cup tie at the Etihad Stadium, with the hosts needing a penalty shootout to advance to the quarter-finals after the match finished goalless after 120 minutes.
“I don’t like it, to be honest,” said City and Ivory Coast midfielder Toure. “They can do better than that. It’s too light. Even in my country they can’t use those kind of balls.
“I think they have to be better than that because the ball was too soft. It’s rubbish but that’s fine. The World Cup one (Jabulani) was better than that one.”
Guardiola, whose team play with Nike balls in the Premier League and Adidas balls in the Champions League, lambasted the Mitre Delta, suggesting it was “not a serious ball for a professional game”.
“We play with a different…
