Manchester City vs. Crystal Palace: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester City entertain Crystal Palace on Saturday still requiring results to secure a Champions League spot.

Manchester City twice recovered from a goal down away at Middlesbrough, however dropped points at a relegation candidate.

Both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus started and scored, although City’s indifferent run continues.

Crystal Palace suffered a surprise defeat at home to Burnley, however should have enough points already to be safe.

Victory was Burnley’s first on the road all season and the win means they are realistically just a few points away from survival themselves.

Team news
Aguero is very likely to miss out here having suffered a leg injury late on against Boro.

David Silva and John Stones remain big doubts, whilst Claudio Bravo’s season appears to be over.

Yohan Cabaye remains a doubt having missed the defeat against Burnley last time out.

Their three first choice central defenders are likely to miss out here, meaning Martin Kelly will feature in an unfavoured role.

Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Caballero; Navas, Otamendi, Kompany, Clichy; Toure, Fernandinho; Sterling, De Bruyne, Sane; Jesus
