Connor Wickham

21:42: Goodness me what an evening in the Premier League. A huge twice in the title race as Manchester City fail to beat rock-bottom Sunderland. City are six points adrift of leaders Liverpool while Sunderland are six points clear of safety with themselves having a game in hand.

That's all we've got time for on this Premier League live text. Until next time, goodbye.

21:36: Oh Vito Mannone what have you done? The ball comes back to Samir Nasri 12 yards out and his shot is straight as the Italian who inexplicably spills the ball and is does agonisinglty into the corner. Now Nasri misses a golden chance to win it as he blazes over. Four minutes of added time. Everton have six to find a leveller against Palace.

Goal: Manchester City 2-2 Sunderland (Samir Nasri)

21:31: Amazing. City are caught on the break as they pile forward and Sunderland take full advantage. Wickham is fed in the box and his drives past Joe Hart at the near post. At Goodison, Everton have a goal back as Mirallas beats Speroni to the looise ball and puts into an empty net.

Goal: Everton 2-3 Crystal Palace (Kevin Mirallas)

Goal: Manchester City 1-2 Sunderland (Connor Wickham)

21:26: Could argue that Manchester City's title hopes rest on the remaining 10 minutes at the Etihad Stadium. Need a goal to keep pace with Chelsea and Liverpool.

21:20: Goodness me. Sunderland out of nothing draw level with 17 minutes left. Giaccherini crosses from the left and at the back post is Connor Wickham who volleys home. His first Premier League goal since October 2011 and suddenly The Black Cats have a relegation lifeline.

Goal: Manchester City 1-1 Sunderland (Connor Wickham)

21:17: That puts an end to any Everton hopes of a comeback. Puncheon weaves in and out of the Toffees defence and feeds Cameron Jerome who takes on touch to set himself and a second to curl past Howard. What a result this could be for Tony Pulis.

Goal: Everton 1-3 Crystal Palace (Cameron Jerome)

21:06: The Toffees are back in it with a soft goal as far as Crystal Palace will be concerned. Miralles crosses from the right, Baines heads back across goal and Naismith pokes home close range. Game on.

Goal: Everton 1-2 Crystal Palace (Steven Naismith)

21:02: Sergio Aguero lasts 56 minutes ans is replaced by Stevan Jovetic with City chasing a second to try and cement this lead over a Sunderland side who won't go away.

20:54: Everton's European hopes are dwindling here as Palace grab a second. Howard does well to keep out Joe ledley's shot but from the resulting corner Scott Dann stoops and heads past the American. Uphill task for Martinez's men.

Goal: Everton 0-2 Crystal Palace (Scott Dann)

20:50: We're late starting at the Etihad Stadium but we are eventually back under way.

20:48: Steven Naismith on for Eveton at half time. We're under way in the second half at Goodison.

20:36: So half time in both of our Premier League games. Crystal Palace are currently staging the shock of the evening as they lead Champions League chasing Everton through another goal from Jason Puncheon. At the Etihad, Manchester City have read the script and lead by a single goal against bottom club Sunderland.

Half time: Manchester City 1-0 Sunderland

Half time: Everton 0-1 Crystal Palace

20:26: Everton come to life as Barkley makes something out of nothing on the right and pokes the ball back to Lukaku who turns the ball goalwards and Speroni makes a good save at the near post.

20:22: Zabaleta hobbles off the field and it looks like he can take no further part. That is a big blow. Chance for Palace meanwhile at Goodison as Bolasie's shot beats Tim Howard but strikes the post. Everton haven't got going tonight.

20:19: Pablo Zabaleta takes a heavy blow from Marcos Alonso who take a fresh air shot straight at the full-backs shin. The City defender is still down onthe edge of the penalty area.....

20:15: Problems for Manchester City. Sergio Aguero down after a nasty challenge from Wes Brown which goes unpunished. The Argentine recieives length treatment and has returned to action. Worth keeping an eye on his movement. His importance to City can't be over-emphasised.

20:11: Out of nothing Crystal Palace hit the front. Yannick Bolasie skins Leighton Baines and his pull back is teed up for Jason Puncheon, who sweeps the ball beyond Tim Howard.

Goal: Everton 0-1 Crystal Palace (Jason Puncheon)

20:04: Everton have enjoyed much of the early possession against Crystal Palace without creating much in terms of chances. At the Etihad meanwhile, sunderland have improves dramatically and Fabio Borini should equalise but after Martin Demichelis is caught out the Italian can only shoot wide.

19:58: City should be two up over Sunderland. Zabaleta heads the ball back and Fernandinho lashes a volley over the bar.

19:54: At Goodison Park meanwhile before kick-off Everton marked the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster in typically dignified style. There was a minute's applause across the ground while scarves were interwinded and held by young fans of both clubs. Margaret Aspinall, the chairman of the Hillsborough Families Support Group, is a guest of honour at Goodison while Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is also in attendance.

19:50: Under way in both Premier League games and a goal inside two minutes at the Etihad Stadium. Aguero plays the ball left to Negredo who dummys the ball and it comes through to Fernandinho who tucks the ball under Mannone. Nightmare start for Sunderland but the ideal kick-start for City.

Goal: Manchester City 1-0 Sunderland (Fernandinho)

19:43: Both sets of players are out at the Etihad Stadium and Goodison Park. Kick-off fast approaching.

19:37: Less than 10 minutes from kick-off in our Premier league double. If the El Clasico is more your thing then we'll also have live coverage of Real Madrid v Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final. Kick off is at 8:30pm. No need to go anywhere really?

19:30: Having fallen seven points behind Liverpool, City must react tonight to keep their title hopes alive. Their opponents Sunderland must surely win tonight to stand any chance of climbing out of the bottom them, with seven points seperating them from saftey and their situation has not been helped by pre-match comments from Gus Poyet regarding his future. Neither of these teams come into this game in good shape so it could be a nervy evening.

19:19: After watching Arsenal defeat West Ham on Tuesday, it's vital that Everton respond against Crystal Palace tonight in order to keep alive their Champions League hopes. Roberto Martinez's men have won their last seven on the spin but the pressure continues to be ratcheted up as they enter unchartered territory. Their opponents Palace are seven points clear of the bottom three after three straight wins and are relax in the knowledge their Premier League status is all but secure for another season. They represent dangerous opponents tonight.

19:10: So a bit of meat to that team news. Everton make three changes with Miralles, Barkley, and McGeady all coming in from the start. Just one alteration from Tony Pulis for Crystal Palace, with Marouane Chamakh partnering Cameron Jerome in attack.

Manchester City start with Sergio Aguero in attack, who is looking for his first goals since January in one of five changes made by Manuel Pellegrini.

19:05: Teams:

Everton v Crystal Palace

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Stones, Distin, Baines, Barry, Mirallas, Barkley, Deulofeu, McGeady, Lukaku

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Mariappa, Delaney, Dann, Ward, Jedinak, Ledley, Bolasie, Puncheon, Chamakh, Jerome

Manchester City v Sunderland

Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Kolarov, Milner, Garcia, Fernandinho, Nasri, Aguero, Negredo

Sunderland: Mannone, Vergini, Alonso, Brown, O'Shea, Cattermole, Colback, Larsson, Johnson, Borini, Wickham

19:00: A couple of mid-week crackers for you in the Premier League. After losing a foothold in the title race after going down 3-2 at Liverpool, Manchester City are in desperate need of a win to reignite their title hopes. They host a Sunderland side who look doomed to relegation and are seven points from safety with two games in hand. The future of manager Gus Poyet is also far from certain also. This is of course a repeat of that thrilling League Cup final in March which saw City eventually prevail. More of the same please.

Our other game tonight sees Everton go in search of an eighth straight league win for the first time for 29 years at home to a Crystal Palace team who after three successive wins have steered themselves nicely away from the drop zone. The game comes 24 hours after the emotional scenes at Anfield to mark the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy and expect another display of unity from Liverpool's neighbours across Stanley Park tonight.
