Manchester City defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. The victory took the Blues to within a point of Premier League table-topping Leicester City who drew with Aston Villa 1-1 at Villa Park on Saturday evening. Manuel Pellegrini was pleased with the performance and result.
"I think it was important to score the first goal. When we are able to score the first goal, we know we are going to have more space.
"The two goals gave us more space as they've had to go for the draw. That allowed us to use that space and score two more.
"To have made so many changes but win the way we did is very useful."
