Manchester City lost to Crystal Palace the last time the two teams met at the Etihad so Pep Guardiola’s side will be fully aware it won’t be an easy game on Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles have also had a decent start to the season, having already gone to Anfield and come away with a draw against Liverpool, so this could be a tightly-contested affair.

In terms of team news, City have four major injury concerns heading into the match, with Jack Grealish (knee), Nathan Ake (groin) and Kalvin Phillips (shoulder) all doubts. Aymeric Laporte (knee) is expected to return to action next month.

Manchester City’ Predicted XI To Face Crystal Palace:

Ederson, Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo, De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan, Silva, Haaland, Foden

Palace boss Patrick Vieira also has four players sidelined, including Jack Butland (wrist), James McArthur (groin), Nathan Ferguson (foot) and James Tomkins (calf).

Crystal Palace’s Predicted XI:

Guaita, Clyne, Ward, Anderson, Guehi, Mitchell, Doucoure, Eze, Schlupp, Ayew, Zaha

The bookmakers have made City heavy favourites with Betway pricing them at 1/5 odds-on to win. A draw is 7/1 with Unibet while a victory for Palace is 16/1 at BetVictor.

Predicted Score – 2-0 to City
