Erling Haaland scored a hat-trick in the second half to help champion Manchester City overcome a two-goal deficit and defeat Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
Due to an own goal by John Stones and a strong header from Joachim Andersen, the visitors appeared on track to win at Etihad Stadium for the second consecutive season.
After the break, though, City cut the deficit in half when Bernardo Silva’s drive bounced past Vicente Guaita off Palace player Jeffrey Schlupp.
When the hosts had full control, Haaland took center stage.
The Norwegian completed the comeback by prodding in John Stones’ errant shot after Phil Foden’s cross had brought Pep Guardiola’s team to within one.
Haaland completed the score with Palace in the lead when he raced on to Ilkay Gundogan’s pass and held off Joel Ward to conclude a strong performance. He was substituted to a thunderous ovation from the home crowd.
After the victory, City climbs to the top of the table ahead of Arsenal’s late kickoff against Fulham. They are now tied for first place with Brighton & Hove Albion on 10 points.
