Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Predicted Lineups - Premier League Predicted Lineups and Crystal Palace, Manchester City injury news, suspension list, and more
After facing a dry 0-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of Champions League 2018-19, Manchester City will visit Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon to face one of the most prominent Premier League giant-killers, Crystal Palace.
The match will be held in Crystal Palace territory, so it could be a headache for the City boss, Pep Guardiola.
Last time they clashed, Manchester City welcomed Crystal Palace back in December 2018, it was a stunning 2-3 victory for The Eagles. The Manchester side has a fine chance of surpassing table-toppers Liverpool, as The Reds will host Chelsea later on the same day.
Man City hold the 2nd position with 80 points, although the men in sky-blue have played one less game than the table toppers, who have 82 points in their bag.
Crystal Palace will be looking to stun this City side in front of their fans, whereas Pep will be looking to rest some superstar players ahead of Wednesday's quarterfinal second leg at the Etihad Stadium.
Crystal Palace's centre-back, James Tomkins, is set to miss the rest of the season due to a groin injury. Another defender, Mamadou Sakho, is expected to remain out with a knee injury. Max Meyer could return to the bench after missing out on their last game due to illness.
Injuries: James Tomkins, Mamadou Sakho, Max Meyer (doubtful)
Manchester City has a number of doubtful concerns. Oleksandr Zinchenko, who has missed City's last two games, will face a late fitness test, while Bernardo Silva could return to the bench against Crystal Palace.
The likes of Kevin de Bruyne and Leroy Sane, who were brought on the field after half time against Spurs, could be featured in the starting lineup on Sunday. Benjamin Mendy is also likely to start in the left-back position. Aguero, Laporte, and Walker should be rested ahead of the UCL second leg in Manchester.
Injuries: Oleksandr Zinchenko (doubtful), Bernardo Silva (doubtful)
Crystal Palace (4-4-2): Guaita; Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Dann, Van Aanholt; McArthur, Milivojevic, Kouyate, Townsend; Zaha, Benteke.
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Danilo, Kompany, Otamendi, Mendy; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, D.Silva; Sterling, Jesus, Sane.
