A Raheem Sterling double sent Manchester City briefly back to the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 victory at Crystal Palace.

After scuffing a great chance wide early on, Sterling made amends with a superb finish from Kevin De Bruyne's incisive through-ball on 15 minutes.

Vicente Guaita's fingertips kept Leroy Sane's arrowed shot out to keep it 1-0 at half-time but Sane's first-time cross was turned in by Sterling for his 17th goal of the season on 63 minutes.

Luka Milivojevic's 81st-minute free-kick gave the hosts hope but substitute Gabriel Jesus swept in De Bruyne's pass in the 90th minute to wrap up City's victory.
