Not since August 21 had Manchester City dropped any points.

Reacting, City's manager, Pep Guardiola, also said forward Gabriel Jesus was likely to be out for up to two months after an injury early in the game.

City were on the verge of seeing their unbeaten record disappear at Selhurst Park, but that streak remained intact when Ederson saved Luka Milivojevic's spot-kick in injury time.

City attempted to sign Sanchez, whose contract expires at the season's end and who Guardiola once signed for Barcelona, during the summer transfer window.

"Hopefully he [Gabriel Jesus] will be one month, maybe two months he will be out", he said. "Then Kevin we were lucky, well not lucky".

I admire him. He's had a long career and I respect that, just as I respect Gareth Barry for all those games he's played in the Premier League. "Protect all the players please from situations that are risky".

But Guardiola does not see Sanchez leaving Arsenal in the coming weeks. Today is completely different to 2004. "I try to win the game, and especially focus on Watford".

Despite those and seeing his team waste the chance to secure victory by missing a late penalty for the second time this month, Roy Hodgson insisted he took significant satisfaction from the draw.

Belgium worldwide De Bruyne, who has been instrumental to City's success this season, suffered the injury after a collision with Palace's Jason Puncheon in stoppage time at Selhurst Park and left the pitch on a stretcher, with his right leg in a brace. We had problems getting going.
