'Man City not yet a finished product'
"Hopefully United can focus on the Europa League and next season we shall see five English teams in Europe which would be wonderful".
After felling Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool last month, three straight defeats have brought Palace back into the relegation equation. "We gifted the points to Burnley by not staying in the game at 1-0, and then against City we didn't deserve anything".
Pep Guardiola will miss his fellow Spaniard's creativity and incisiveness in the midfield, as City have struggled without Silva dictating the pace and carving up opponents defenses with his sharp and accurate passing. In Spain it's always the same two - Barcelona and Real Madrid - plus Atletico Madrid in recent years and another one [has] come.
On Silva, Guardiola added: "Yesterday was the first training session".
"It is important to be in it for many reasons, to grow and to enjoy the big moments".
City showed that they do not need to only rely on their strikers to get the goals.
But the former England boss has called on his side to roll up their sleeves on get on with the job of securing their Premier League future.
Pablo Zabaleta has indicated he is ready to make the "tough decision" and end his Manchester City career this summer after nearly a decade with the club with Pep Guardiola poised to try and bring in £35million England right-back Kyle Walker from Tottenham.
"So we are better than all the teams in the Premier League, home and away, even the next champions Chelsea - we created more chances against them at home and at Stamford Bridge". But Palace did well to withstand the pressure and chances at the other end.
"But it's in our hands and we are able to take a step forward to qualify [for the Champions League], if we win all three games we will be in Champions League maybe third position so it depends on us". "The good thing is we kept going".
2 - Creating a total of two chances, the diminutive playmaker trailed team leader Kevin De Bruyne by five.
Guardiola's stats are correct - Spurs had 13 shots to City's 12 when they lost at White Hart Lane in October.
"Now it's a case of having to finish the last four games really strongly".
Mauricio Pochettino's side paid the price for a lethargic display at the London Stadium and Lanzini's second-half strike may well have ended their hopes of winning the title for the first time since 1961.
Palace's improved run since Allardyce took charge has increased expectations about the club's prospects for next season. Not only did the former Valencia man convert the chance, he created it too: Silva's looping pass to Sterling opened up the Palace defence and turned tidy possession play into a scoring opportunity.
