Manchester City dropped points in their attempt to close in on their Premier League title-chasing rivals as they drew with Sunderland.

It could have been worse for City, who took an early lead through Fernandinho, but then went behind as Connor Wickham struck twice in 10 minutes.

But with two minutes left, Black Cats goalkeeper Vito Mannone could not stop Samir Nasri’s fierce strike.

City are six points behind leaders Liverpool and four behind Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Everton handed the initiative back to Arsenal in the race for fourth as their seven-match winning streak ended with a damaging defeat to Crystal Palace.

Jason Puncheon’s half-volley and Scott Dann’s header put Palace in control before Steven Naismith’s tap-in.

Cameron Jerome added the Eagles’ third with a low drive before Kevin Mirallas’ consolation from close range, reports the BBC.

It means the Toffees remain fifth, a point behind the Gunners, with both sides having four remaining matches.
