"The Premier League is a very physical league and the referees must take care of the players".

But Belgium global De Bruyne was seen walking back to the City dressing room accompanied by two medical staff.

"Gabriel will be out for a little bit more than one month", manager Pep Guardiola said. Sometimes you ask for that but I have a lot of things in my mind. "It's OK. But there are limits".

Palace had both Scott Dann and Jason Puncheon both stretchered off after injuring themselves while committing fouls on City players.

"We are massively stretched going forward because Mamadou Sakho has been out now for a month and is likely to be out for a few more weeks to come with a quite serious injury, and Joel Ward is still recovering and there's no sign of him doing that in the next few days. They must protect the players", Guardiola said.

While all eyes have been on Manchester United's increasingly unconvincing efforts to keep pace with City at the top of the table, Chelsea have embarked on a run of 10 wins from their last 13 league games, losing just once, and their return to form has largely gone unnoticed.

PEP GUARDIOLA has admitted Manchester City could be forced to make a bid for Alexis Sanchez in January.

But the inevitable focus on the consequences of Sunday's match for City could not diminish the achievement for its opponent.

The Citizens were held to a goalless draw at Selhurst Park in a feisty encounter that saw both Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne stretchered off for Man City. However, their winning streak was halted at 18 by the resolute Palace.

"I don't know (what's going to happen) but he's a player of Arsenal and I think he is going to stay there", Guardiola added.

Palace earned a penalty in stoppage time when Raheem Sterling brought down Wilfried Zaha but the normally reliable Luka Milivojevic had his spot kick saved by Ederson.

Guardiola, meanwhile, insisted that City's remaining unbeaten was the least of his concerns, even though the Ederson save to deny Milivojevic kept his team on pace for a rare achievement.

"That's not going to happen", Guardiola said of his side matching Arsenal's so-called Invincibles. "But now Alexis is an Arsenal player". "I am not thinking to be unbeaten".
