Team News

Kevin De Bruyne, Benjamin Mendy and John Stones were all back in training this week, though it remains to be seen whether any of them will be involved at Selhurst Park.

Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane remain on the injury list.

The hosts welcome back captain Luka Milivojevic, who was suspended for their previous game against West Ham, but Mamadou Sakho and Connor Wickham miss out with injuries.

Pep preview

"I think since Roy took over the team [Palace] with zero points and helped them to avoid relegation, they have always made a really good season. They have incredibly talented players."

Last time out

City fell to our first home league defeat since December 2018, losing 2-0 to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The result saw us fall eight points behind league leaders Liverpool, so Pep Guardiola's side will be champing at the bit to get back on track this weekend.

Last meeting 

A Raheem Sterling brace and late strike from Gabriel Jesus saw City grab a ninth straight Premier League win with five games of last season to go.

Sterling opened the scoring early on, firing into the roof of the net after being threaded through by Kevin De Bruyne, before adding his second just after the hour from a drilled Leroy Sane cross.

Eagles midfielder Luka Milivojevic gave the hosts hope with a pinpoint free kick ten minutes from time, but Jesus wrapped up all three points at the death following a swift counter attack.
