In-form striker Erling Haaland expertly dispatched the resulting penalty kick to score his 28th league goal of the season.
Pep Guardiola, in a postmatch interview, praised the fighting spirit of the Crystal Palace team and singled out Ayew and Zaha for praise for their contribution to their team.
He told Sky Sports that it is always tricky playing at Selhurst Park adding that the way Palce play and run is incredible.
The former Bayern Munich manager also said Jordan Ayew and Zaha are incredible players who are always running and creating spaces for their team.
The defeat to Manchester City means the Eagles have been on a run of 10 matches without a win, leaving them just four points above the drop zone.
