Manchester City travel to Selhurst Park this weekend for an FA Cup fourth-round tie with Crystal Palace.

And there’s plenty of shared heritage between the two clubs. A host of players have played for both teams down the years, including Mark Kennedy, a winger with a wonderful left foot who was key to City’s revival under Joe Royle at the turn of the millennium

He joined after City’s playoff promotion from the old Division Two back in 1999 – and was the man who supplied the ammunition for Shaun Goater’s 30 goals that secured a second successive promotion in 2000. 

He went on to play 66 league games for City, scoring 8 goals, before joining Wolves for £2 million in 2001.

Kennedy returned to the club this summer as manager of City’s under-15 side, who recently beat their Manchester United counterparts 9-0. 

You can see who else has played for both in recent seasons by watching the video above.
