Why Man City dropping points against Crystal Palace could be a blessing in disguise

Manchester City dropped points for only the second time in the Premier League this season - but it isn't necessarily a bad thing.

According to Blues defender Kyle Walker who feels the goalless draw could bring his side back down to earth.

City missed the opportunity to equal a European-top flight winning record with a below-par display against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Ederson proved to be the hero as he saved an injury-time penalty from Luka Milivojevic to deny the Eagles a late winner after the Blues had failed to breakdown a resilient Palace side.

And although Walker was disappointed to see the winning run halted, he is looking forward to the fresh challenge of regaining momentum in the New Year.

"We set such high standards and have not got the win but full credit to the lads for the standards we set," Walker told the official club website.

"It's good in a way to drop points to get us down to earth and get that motivation. A lot of teams defend deep with 10 men behind the ball.

"We have had to deal with a lot and have come out on top. Full credit to Crystal Palace. We can't let those standards drop. We as a team and the manager won't let that happen."

"I have played against Wilfried Zaha a number of times and he always gives me a good game. So it's good to test yourself. It was a good battle."
