Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson was proud of his team's performance as they ended Manchester City's winning run.
As Ederson rescuing a point for City, the blue of Manchester also preserved their unbeaten record and extended it to 21 matches.
"They have very good players so as a defensive unit you have to be concentrated for 90 minutes". "They must protect the players", Guardiola said.
"There are now more strong teams, a lot of competitions, a lot of games".
Pep Guardiola says striker Gabriel Jesus could be out of action for two months following the draw with Crystal Palace, and has refused to rule out a move to Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez to replace him. "We could have dropped points before".
"Football is emotional and sometimes you have arguments and be together to have the best solution".
The Brazilian left the field in tears in the 23rd minute and Guardiola explained on BT Sport: "He will be out for maybe one month or two months".
"To be focused after 17 games in a row is not easy but we did it [against Newcastle]". Today we were not lucky. "But I don't know what happens in the future".
The runaway Premier League leaders attempted to sign the Chilean last summer and are expected to finally get their man at the end of the season when his Arsenal contract runs out.
"We will have internal meetings and see what is for the best, but he is an Arsenal player and I think he will be [after January]".
