Pep Guardiola preview

"They defend really well. They are resilient and have an incredible amount of quality and from nothing can create something special.

"We have to be aware and not do mistakes because they defend their 18-yard box really well, have good set pieces and good transitions.

"With Ayew,  Zaha, Eze, Eduoard they have weapons. And experienced players in the middle. Hopefully we can break them and win the game."

Previous meeting

City were forced to settle for a share of the Premier League spoils when we were held to a goalless draw on a frustrating night at Selhurst Park in March 2022.

Pep Guardiola’s side did everything but score, with Joao Cancelo and Kevin De Bruyne both hitting the post in either half and Bernardo Silva twice coming within an ace of finding the target.

However, a well-drilled Palace side managed to soak up all our pressure in what proved an action-packed encounter.

The Eagles came out victorious in their last trip to the Etihad, overcoming ten-man City by two goals on a frustrating afternoon.

Last time out

City fought back from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 in a pulsating Premier League clash against Newcastle United at St James' Park.

Ikay Gundogan opened the scoring in the North East, but Miguel Almiron levelled just before the half hour mark.

Callum Wilson put the Magpies ahead with a composed strike before the break, before Kieran Trippier's free-kick make it 3-1 shortly after the restart.

City regrouped and pulled a goal back through Erling Haaland's predatory strike and, three minutes later, Bernardo levelled the score, latching onto De Bruyne's sensational pass to calmly slot beyond Pope to complete a sensational comeback.

City pushed for a late winner, but Eddie Howe's side hung on as we shared a point each after a thrilling encounter.

As for Palace, they came from behind to beat Aston Villa 3-1 at Selhurst Park.

Form guide

City are unbeaten after three matches in the league, sitting in second place with seven points.

Palace have won one, drawn one and lost one and sit in ninth place in the table
