Manchester City would enjoy Premier League championship glory if they can defeat Crystal Palace on Saturday by the end of the weekend. While Man City won the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain by the same scoreline in midweek, the hosts will have had five days to recover from their 2-1 loss to Leicester City on Monday night. Know everything about Crystal Palace vs Manchester City prediction and lineup.
Crystal Palace lineup: Guaita; Ward, Kouyate, Dann, Van Aanholt; Ayew, Milivojevic, McCarthy, Eze; Zaha, Benteke
Crystal Palace may be without seven players for Saturday’s match against Manchester City.
Manchester City lineup: Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; Fernandinho, Gundogan, Silva; Torres, Jesus, Sterling
Only John Stones is suspended from the Manchester City squad, rest of Pep Guardiola has a whole roster to choose from when they will play against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Given the ankle injury Kevin De Bruyne’s inclusion in the starting XI will be a huge surprise. Guardiola could also hold back players like Phil Foden and Ilkay Gundogan in preparation for the second leg next week.
Nathan Ake and Aymeric Laporte, both left-footers, have never played center-back together, so Eric Garica could make one more appearance before moving to Barcelona this season.
Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Prediction
After a promising start to the season, Crystal Palace has been pretty average for months now and have just won one of their last seven matches.
Palace may be positive about their chances of a shock outcome due to a slew of anticipated changes from Man City, but City’s road form is unrivaled.
To clinch the Premier League title with four games to spare other results must go their way for Guardiola’s side, and they can give themselves the best shot possible by winning comfortably at Selhurst Park.
