THE TEAM NEWS

CRYSTAL PALACE

  • Palace made it four wins from their last six league matches last time out as they came from behind to beat West Ham away from home.
  • Roy Hodgson may be tempted to go unchanged but he is more likely to make one change with skipper Milivojevic back from suspension.
  • James McCarthy is the player likely to make way but the rest of the team will surely be unchanged given their fine run of form lately.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Guaita; Ward, Cahill, Kelly, Van Aanholt; Zaha, McArthur, Milivojevic, Kouyate, Schlupp; Ayew

Unavailable: Sakho (Injured), Wickham (Injured)

Doubtful:

MAN CITY

  • Man City were stunned prior to the break as they lost 0-2 at the Etihad to Wolves to fall even further behind Liverpool in the title race.
  • Pep Guardiola lost De Bruyne to injury for that game but he will be desperately hoping his key Belgian playmaker can recover for this one.
  • Sergio Aguero is believed to be carrying a knock along with Walker, so the duo remain doubtful for this potentially tricky trip down South.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Zinchenko; David Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Aguero, Sterling

Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

City's defeat last time out sent shockwaves around the Premier League as they fell eight points behind leaders Liverpool. That loss only adds to the pressure on them right now and Palace have enough quality at home to take advantage of their fragile defence so expect goals at both ends of the pitch.
