Manchester City vs Crystal Palace Match Preview and Team News
Fourth-placed Manchester City can move up to second with a home win over 15th in the Premier League. City began the weekend four points behind leaders Liverpool but only three behind second-placed Arsenal. The Citizens have struggled for form in recent weeks but look to be coming out of that slump. Last week the Blues came from behind to win 2-1 at Luton Town. This ended Pep Guardiola’s streak of four league games without a win. In midweek, a largely changed team defeated Red Star in the Champions League 3-2. Jack Grealish is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Josko Guardiol arrived as the biggest reinforcement in the transfer window for as much as 90 million, he is one of the best defenders in the world. Pep Guardiola seeks responsibility in every game, it doesn’t matter who the opponent is, the players have to do their best, which is why he is one of the best coaches in the world. Zack Steffen (Knee surgery) and Kevin De Bruyne (Partial muscle tear) won’t be able to feature for Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
Crystal Palace are still seven points above the relegation zone. They don’t need to panic yet but come into this fixture having only earned one point from their last five league games. Last week they lost to Liverpool after having the lead. The form guide for their last ten league games lists them in 16th place with just eight points from 30. Away form is currently a problem as only one of their last four league matches has been won. Michael Olise is the best player on the team, and it will be challenging to keep him because many great clubs want him. Odsonne Edouard enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems. Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has several players out of action. Jesurun Rak-Sakyi (Hamstring injury), Dean Henderson (Torn thigh muscle) and Cheick Doucouré (Achilles tendon rupture) will not be playing here.
