Edin Dzeko scored his 50th Manchester City goal to send the Blues top of the Premier League when Crystal Palace visited the Etihad Stadium in December 2013.

It was a typically clinical finish from the Bosnian, who, after finding a yard of space in the penalty area, only need one touch to sweep home Jesus Navas' cross to give Manuel Pellegrini's men all three points.

It was a goal for the statisticians. Not only did the striker reach a half century of goals of the Club, but his conversion also saw the City score for the 60th successive home game and break their own Premier League record by netting 54 times in 19 games.

City XI: Hart; Boyata (Negredo), Kompany, Nastasic, Clichy; Fernandinho (Nasri), Javi Garcia; Navas, Silva, Milner (Kolarov); Dzeko
