Team News

Man City
Crystal Palace
  • Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola remains without Kevin De Bruyne, while Jeremy Doku and Erling Haaland will have to be assessed ahead of this one.
  • Matheus Nunes made his full return from injury in the Champions League in midweek.
  • Crystal Palace remain without key men Eberechi Eze and Cheick Doucoure, while Sam Johnstone and Odsonne Edouard now look set to spend time on the sidelines.
  • Third-choice stopper Remi Matthews looks set to start between the sticks here.

Prediction

  • Manchester City ended a run of four matches without a victory in the Premier League when they came from behind to claim all three points at Luton last weekend.
  • City's inconsistency, however, sees them head into this one four points adrift of league leaders Liverpool, in fourth place.
  • Crystal Palace are without a win in five matches under Roy Hodgson, who is coming under increased pressure at Selhurst Park.
  • The Eagles took the lead against Liverpool last Saturday, but threw away all three points and eventually lost 2-1.
  • Palace's slump has seen them fall to 15th and they could yet fall further, with points unlikely to be taken here.

  • lol

  • FCK City

  • wow

  • Guardiola should play himself as a left back, would be even more fun

  • Well played City....keep passing it back and around instead of trying to attack or score...well played....

  • @AramisMick LOL did you start watching City's Guardiola this season ? That's their bread and butter

  • @Alcimario1 :D...fair point...but they used to often have more grit and would counter attack...now it get to 2 on 2 and City players will turn around and pass it backward...simply frustrating...

  • Hahahahahahahahahaha! Justice for the years of boring football and financial manipulation

  • Even better than kovacic??

  • Is lewis better than nunes in midfield??

  • Crystal palace score both halves

  • If Gvardiol still as leaft back then 2-1, if as CD, then 3-0 ;)

  • 4-1 city

  • Man City are undefeated (10-3-0) when Rodri starts, and undefeated in Grealish's PL starts (4-0-0). With Doku out, Man City is 5-0-2, losing to Arsenal and Aston Villa without scoring a goal in either road affair for their two losses. Palace are yet to win without Doucouré in the starting lineup (0-2-3). They are also 0-2-4 in games where Eze doesn't play.

  • W1 and +2.5

  • Manchester City striker Erling Haaland is being assessed "day by day" as he attempts to recover from a foot injury for the Club World Cup next week.

  • Man City should start with their actual 11 here having rested their main players mid-week for the CL clash against RB Leipzig. Man City HT/FT & +1.5

  • @BoixosNois The last match against Leipzig was 2.5 weeks ago. Is this a botched AI message? If yes, why bother posting it?

  • @BoixosNois main players without Haaland. he is rested for this GW.
