Palace caused the biggest shock of the campaign to date by claiming their first win at City for exactly 28 years to end the defending champions' 100% home record in the top flight this season.
Schlupp scored the equalising goal to cancel out Gundogan's opener as he picked the ball up on the edge of the penalty area and drilled it into the far corner.
