Yaya Toure marked his shock return to the Manchester City team with two goals as his side grabbed a dramatic late win at Crystal Palace.

Toure, making his first Premier League appearance of the season, combined with Nolito before firing City ahead.

Palace’s pressure paid off when Wilfried Zaha set up substitute Connor Wickham to smash home a second-half equaliser.

But Toure, who has not figured at all for City for almost three months, had the final word when he turned home Kevin de Bruyne’s corner from close range.

The win moves City second in the table, level on points with leaders Liverpool and with an identical goal difference.

Palace, who suffered their fifth straight league defeat, remain one point above the relegation zone.
