Manchester City play their final home game of 2018 with a traditional 3 o’clock kick-off today. Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace are the visitors and being just 3 points above the drop-zone, the Eagles will be desperate to get something from one of the toughest fortresses in European football.
City are in fine form going into today’s game having bounced back from a defeat to Chelsea with successive wins over Hoffenheim, Everton and Leicester City. With away games at Leicester and Southampton coming up, Pep Guardiola’s men will want to maximise today’s home fixture with another win.
Andre Marriner is today’s referee and here are the sides selected by Guardiola and Hodgson:
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Otamendi, Delph, Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Sané, Sterling, Jesus
Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Sakho, Schlupp, Wan-Bissaka, Meyer, Milivojevic, McArthur, Townsend, Zaha
