Man City and Palace share a rollercoaster history

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini speaks after his team's 3-0 victory over West Brom.

A lot of water has passed under the bridge since Malcolm Allison and his protege Terry Venables squared up to each other on the first day of the 1979-80 season. Allison in his chaotic second period in charge of City; Venables the recently retired Tottenham, QPR and Crystal Palace midfielder taking his first bold steps in a management career that would see him take charge of Barcelona in a European Cup final and England in a European championship semifinal.

The Manchester City goalkeeper reached the milestone in Tuesday's 1-1 draw in Turin, during which Buffon represented the Azzurri for a record 147th time.
