Team News

  • Marouane Chamakh is the only injury worry for Tony Pulis ahead of the visit of Manchester City.
  • The Moroccan missed the win at West Ham last week but is expected to recover in time here.
  • Otherwise Palace should remain unchanged.
  • David Silva is again a doubt after being forced off against West Brom in his return from a knock that ruled him out of the draw with Sunderland.
  • Jesus Navas missed out last week with an ankle injury but could return here.
  • Touré and Nastasic remain absent.

Prediction

  • Crystal Palace have now won 5 games a row; only 3 teams (including this week's opponents Manchester City) have enjoyed better winning runs all season in the Premier League and Tony Pulis has led them to guaranteed safety.
  • Manchester City still have a good chance of winning the league but need a favour from Chelsea earlier in the day at Liverpool. No matter what the result there, however, they need to win here to keep up the chase in case of any slip-up on Liverpool's part.
  • Palace are on fantastic form and could well cause problems for a City side that have won only 2 of their last 5 matches. Nonetheless, they should still be favourites to grab a narrow victory.

  • LooL NNegredo is ooo over rated. He is a wery good player. But sure not a top scorer. Kind of player that scores 2 3 goals against weak opposition when you already have the lead. Look ! Sevilla score more without him and play way better. Bacca score less goals, but provides goals that are really useful against strong squad.
