Man City's title hopes dealt another blow by Palace.

Pep Guardiola said Manchester City's aim is to 'secure a place' in the Champions League next season after their faint title hopes were dealt another blow by a resolute Crystal Palace side.

Fernandinho's 90th-minute own goal ensured the Eagles claimed a draw at Etihad Stadium on Saturday in a remarkable conclusion to the game.

The result leaves champions City way behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Two Sergio Aguero goals in the last 10 minutes had turned a thrilling contest on its head - and looked set to earn City victory - after Cenk Tosun had given the Eagles a first-half lead.

Palace had the final word, however, when Wilfried Zaha stole down the left and put in a low cross that Fernandinho reached before Connor Wickham, only to divert the ball into his own net.
