Manchester City Boss, Pep Guardiola acknowledged that many things went wrong’ in Manchester City’s 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
Patrick Vieira’s team earned all three points thanks to goals from Wilfried Zaha and Connor Gallagher, with the hosts finishing the game with ten men after Aymeric Laporte was sent off.
Man City felt aggrieved by yet another judgment, which saw Gabriel Jesus’ goal disallowed with the score still at 0-1 after Phil Foden was adjudged to have been offside in the build-up.
The Spaniard, on the other hand, has refused to blame the loss on the judgments, implying that they were not at their best.

“It could be a yellow or red,” he said of the Laporte incident.
“It depends on the referee and what he thinks. The goal, I imagine the linesman says he’s offside.
“We didn’t lose because of that. We conceded the first goal and we weren’t able to score a goal but after that we really good and for 25-30 minutes of the second we were good.
“But when you play 50 minutes 10 against 11, it is difficult for a team like us because you need the process and to do everything right.
“The players showed character and tried, but unfortunately many, many things went wrong and we lost the game.”
The loss, their second of the season, saw City drop five points off league leaders Chelsea, who won 3-0 away at Newcastle.
