Manchester City will entertain Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium this Saturday afternoon as both teams look to secure a win in the Premier League. The Mancunian giants were held to a 3-3 draw by Newcastle United last weekend. In contrast, the Eagles secured a 2-0 victory away at Oxford United in the EFL Cup.

Manchester City vs Crystal Palace: Talking Tactics

Pep Guardiola could set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and will ask his players to dominate the ball and orchestrate enough clear-cut chances to win this game convincingly in front of their home supporters.

Patrick Viera will opt for a 5-4-1 formation as he instructs his men to frustrate the Man City attackers by keeping things tight and compact inside their penalty box. The Palace boss would look to use the pace of Jordan Ayew and Wilfried Zaha to expose some of Man City’s defensive weaknesses on the counter.
