Manchester City will play the Round of 16 in the FA Cup this season after a quite comfortable 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. A good, composed performance from a rotated City team led to a good victory on the road, and after a string of disappointing results, a win and a clean sheet is a really good thing.


  • I followed this game on radio, so I have no real idea how City played. Taking the word from the people who were at Selhurt Park and they say we played well. So yay!
  • Gabriel Jesus ran all over the field and got physical with the Palace defenders, and also played a very nice pass to Raheem Sterling in the first goal. Really good from Jesus in his first start for the club.
  • Sterling should gain some confidence with this goal after missing some easy chances against Spurs last week. You're good, Raheem. You're good.
  • Yaya Touré (goal) and David Silva (assist) ran the show. What else is new?
  • Leroy Sané followed up his awesome performance against Tottenham with a good game and a goal at Selhurst Park. Three goals in his last three games now. He's the real deal, this kid.
  • Willy Caballero kept a clean sheet for the second game in a row, and stopped all of Palace's shots on target. Just saying.
