WATCH: Pep Guardiola eyes patient approach against Palace

PEP PREVIEW

"A team like Palace knows exactly what they have to do. We have to be patient, find our rhythm.

"They defend so well, we saw that against Arsenal hey were able to control much of the game. 

"All the clubs have their ups and downs this season more than ever. Every team has four good results and then after one or two bad ones. Palace are not an exception."

Hodgson preview

“If they’re [Manchester City] not conceding goals, they’re always likely to score with the quality of players they have to choose from, It’s going to be a very very tough ask for us.

“One should be looking forward to it because it’s a fantastic stadium and we’re playing against a fantastic team."

"The reason we’re in the Premier League really is to play in these games."

FORM GUIDE

Pep Guardiola's side head into the game on the back of an impressive run that has seen City go unbeaten in our last 14 games in all competitions.

Our last outing saw us defeat Brighton and Hove Albion 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium thanks to a first half strike from Phil Foden, leaving us third in the Premier League table.

The Eagles currently sit 13th in the league table after picking up 23 points from 18 games this season.

They head into the clash on the back of a hard-fought 0-0 draw away at Arsenal in midweek.

LAST MEETING

The last time the two sides met resulted in a stalemate as a 2-2 draw was played out at the Etihad Stadium last January.

Cenk Tosun opened the scoring for Palace five minutes before half time to give them the lead at the break.

Two late second half goals from Sergio Aguero looked to have rescued the win for City, however a late Fernandinho own goal meant the spoils were shared.
