Gallery: City's final preparation for Palace

Pep Guardiola's side were hard at work in training on Friday afternoon ahead of Saturday's trip to Crystal Palace.

City travel to Selhurst Park for the 17:30 (UK) kick-off knowing that victory will pile the pressure on Premier League leaders Arsenal.

With Champions League and FA Cup assignments next week, this is our final league match before this month's international break.

City have a strong record at Palace under Guardiola, having won four and drawn two of his six previous Premier League visits to South London.

We will also be hoping to take confidence from the reverse fixture in August when Erling Haaland's first City hat-trick earned us a 4-2 win at the Etihad Stadium.

With another match against former City midfielder and current Palace boss Patrick Vieira around the corner, our players were at the City Football Academy earlier today for some fine tuning.
