City manager Pep Guardiola spoke to the media after the game and highlighted the importance of the victory in the race for a Champions League place. Pep also praised captain Vincent Kompany, who's made a sensational return from injury and played amazing football in recent weeks.

Here's a rundown of Pep's quotes:

“It is in our hands for a place in the Champions League. In England, there are six teams full of quality and history, fighting for these places. This is unlike anywhere else in Europe.

"We have two more games at home – one more than Liverpool. We can enjoy ourselves a little bit [following the win over Palace] and then prepare for Leicester next week.

“Every player has his quality. Nicolas Otamendi and Vincent Kompany are strong in the air and win duels but we don’t have enough guys to score goals.

“[Five games played in a row for Vincent] is a huge step. I spoke to him at the beginning of the season, saying we need to make small steps.

“[Against Palace], we discovered that maybe he can play as a striker! Hopefully he can last longer next season. We need to have back-up though in case this (his injury) happens again.”
