Manchester City have not lost a competitive game of football since being knocked out of the FA Cup by Arsenal in April, and will fancy their chances against struggling Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium today.
Football and the Premier League in particular can throw up surprises though, and Pep Guardiola will need to respect a Palace side with the experienced Roy Hodgson now in charge. However, City have won their last six fixtures against the Eagles and will be confident of making that seven today.
Neil Swarbrick is today’s referee and here are the starting selections from both Guardiola and Hodgson:
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, D. Silva, Sterling, Sane, Aguero.
Crystal Palace XI: Hennessey, van Aanholt, Dann, Sakho, Schlupp, Fosu-Mensah, Milivojevic, Cabaye, Townsend, Loftus-Cheek, Benteke.
