Manchester City could be crowned 2020/21 Premier League champions on Sunday after defeating Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park.

Goals from Sergio Aguero and Ferran Torres mean that if Man Utd lose to Liverpool at Old Trafford then City will claim their third league title in four years.

Crystal Palace v Man City: Player Ratings and Match Statistics

So which players stood out most in Man City's latest win?

✔️ Sergio Aguero: 7.4

The Argentine legend will leave at the end of the season after a magnificent 10 years in Manchester.

He will be remembered by some as the greatest player in the club's history but this has been a difficult final campaign for the attacker.

On Saturday he scored only his second goal of 2021 but what a goal it was! He took a left-wing cross from Benjamin Mendy into his stride and thundered the ball into the roof of the net.

This broke the deadlock and City cruised through the rest of the game after Ferran Torres added a second.

✔️ Joao Cancelo: 7.7

One of the worst swaps in recent history - if you are a Juventus fan - was the deal that saw Cancelo swap clubs with Danilo.

Guardiola has moulded the incredibly talented Cancelo into a world beater at the Etihad.

He was once again full of energy and enterprise and irrepressible dribbling as he bombed up and down the pitch.

⭐️ Fernandinho: 8.3

Fernandinho turns 36 next week but he is still performing to an incredibly high level.

The Brazilian once again ran the show in midfield as City enjoyed 70 per cent of the possession against Roy Hodgson's side.

Like Aguero, his contract expires at the end of the season but should City sign him on for another year?

Certainly there are few better than the Brazilian at protecting the defence - even more so in such an attacking team like Pep Guardiola's City.
