Pep Guardiola: 'Supernatural' Kevin De Bruyne peaking at the right time

Sterling brace takes Man City top once more

The Eagles will be the underdogs for this clash as they will be playing against a fired-up Citzens side who are aiming to win their second consecutive Premier League title under Pep Guardiola.

De Bruyne signed for Chelsea from Genk in January 2012.

As for Sterling, what a player he's developed into.

But Raheem Sterling's double and a late third from Gabriel Jesus, after Luka Milivojevic gave Palace brief hope with a free-kick, kept City's bid to retain their crown firmly on track.

They both joined Man City in 2015 but initial impressions weren't positive.

Though De Bruyne admits his form was "not brilliant", the Belgian worldwide clearly felt it was worthy of a prolonged run in the Chelsea side.

And after impressing for the Bundesliga team, De Bruyne has revealed that then-Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp was interested in signing him.

"There was so much in the press about my relationship with Jose Mourinho", the 27-year-old Belgium global wrote in The Players' Tribune.

"But for me, it's Liverpool at Newcastle and City at Old Trafford".

Zidane openly admits Real Madrid are 'going to make changes'
Gareth Bale is among the Madrid players to have struggled this season and fallen out with fans. We'll see who stays and who goes, but that doesn't change what I think about Kroos .

"So I'm very happy for him".

"Sitting and watching a match from the stands is basically worse than torture for me". So I guess I thought he'd be ... what do the English call it? A bit of a d***head, maybe?

He added: "When I arrived for preseason, the vibe was good". They said I was 'the Chelsea reject'.

On Friday Guardiola rebuffed Ilkay Gundogan's claims that City are "too nervous" in the Champions League, but he went on to admit that their route through the competition has not always been plain sailing.

"We have played with incredible personality in the last two or three months - for the last month we've known that if we drop points it will be more hard if not impossible to win the title. I'd rather you sell me".

"I can only say what everyone else knows". But honestly, when you read about other players, it influences the way you think. "If we win the last six games then we will be champions". What's the story here? "But, unfortunately, that cloud still followed me around for a long time". I said, 'I feel like the club doesn't really want me here. He couldn't be more different from what the tabloids were saying. For me, the Newcastle one is a worry. 'He said, "One assist". But you're actually quite amusing'. So I said, 'No.

'I was completely honest.

"He looked at me like, 'Mate!'" You threw me in the garbage.

"Seeing him chase back to get Wilf Zaha, to prevent Zaha getting into a situation where he might be 1-v-1, I think that is a great credit him. In my experience, footballers can be a lot different than you expect, especially if you really get to know them".
