Manchester City begin a run of three successive home games at the Etihad Stadium against Crystal Palace at lunchtime today. The Blues must make the most of having three of their last four games on familiar soil, although home form hasn’t been the best this season.
Sam Allardyce’s teams have beaten Chelsea and Liverpool in two of their last three away games, a warning sign if any was needed that City must concentrate and work hard today.
Michael Oliver is today’s referee and here are the line-ups selected by Pep Guardiola and Allardyce:
Manchester City XI: Caballero, Fernandinho, Kompany (c), Otamendi, Clichy, Yaya Toure, Sterling, De Bruyne, Silva, Sane, Gabriel Jesus
Crystal Palace XI: Hennessey, Ward, Kelly, Van Aanholt, Schlupp, Milivojevic, Puncheon (c), McArthur, Zaha, Townsend, Benteke
