Crystal Palace remain the only side in Europe’s top five leagues yet to score this season as Manchester City eased to victory at Etihad Stadium.
The Premier League’s bottom club competed with the league leaders admirably early on, striking the post through Ruben-Loftus Cheek.
City boss Pep Guardiola was visibly frustrated but moments before the break Leroy Sane produced a classy first touch and then a prodded finish to change the dynamic of the game.
Raheem Sterling touched home a fine Sane cross shortly after the interval and slotted from a yard out when Sergio Aguero unselfishly squared.
The deficit was perhaps harsh on Palace, who were well in the first half, but their collapse pointed to a side lacking confidence.
Aguero showed no mercy, heading home a sublime Sane cross to move within one goal of levelling the club’s goalscoring record.
Palace are now without a point or goal in six league games and Fabian Delph’s superb strike into the top corner from 20 yards added to their misery.
