Crystal Palace will welcome Manchester City at Selhurst Park on Monday night as both sides look to get the better of each other in the Premier League. The Eagles managed to pick up a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this league clash at home. In contrast, Man City were held to a scoreless draw by Sporting CP earlier this week as they fielded a weaker starting XI, having won the first leg by a 5-0 scoreline.

Crystal Palace Vs Manchester City: Talking Tactics

Patrick Viera could set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name an unchanged team for this game. The Eagles head coach will ask his players to keep a solid shape defensively and try to expose Man City’s weaknesses on the counter using the pace of Wilfried Zaha.

Pep Guardiola will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and could revert to his strongest XI for this game. The Man City boss will instruct his men to dominate possession at the centre of the park and create enough clear-cut chances to win this tough away clash in the Premier League.

Nathan Ferguson and James McArthur will definitely miss this game due to injuries. Joel Ward is a major doubt for this game as he is recovering from a groin problem.

Manchester City

Ruben Dias is unlikely to be risked in this game while Guardiola will be sweating on the fitness of Joao Cancelo who is a significant concern ahead of this game.

Manchester City Predicted XI

Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Foden, Grealish

Key Men

Crystal Palace

Jean-Philippe Mateta and Wilfried Zaha will carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Palace up top. Both Joachim Andersen and Marc Guéhi will need to give a good account of themselves on the defensive end of the field if the Eagles are to have any chance of securing something from this game.

Manchester City

Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden are enjoying a good run of form of late, so one of them will be expected to find the back of the net this weekend. Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva will be responsible for pulling the strings from midfield and engineering enough chances for Man City to collect maximum points from this away clash.
