LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester City took advantage of Liverpool's surprise 2-0 home defeat by Chelsea to move within striking distance of them at the top of the Premier League with a comfortable 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Three points behind the leaders, City have a home game in hand and a goal difference that is eight better than Liverpool's. They are only one point behind second-placed Chelsea, having played a game fewer.
City midfielder Yaya Toure, returning from injury, made the first goal for Edin Dzeko and scored the second before halftime.
Eleventh-placed Palace had won their previous five games to guarantee another year in the Premier League.
