Confirmed Line-Ups: Crystal Palace vs Manchester City (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Manchester City travel to Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon as they look to go level on points with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table, albeit perhaps only temporarily.

The Premier League champions bounced back from a drab 0-0 draw against title rivals Arsenal last weekend with a convincing and impressive 4-1 victory over high-flying Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

It was a match all about one man as Manchester City academy graduate Phil Foden scored his third hat-trick for the club’s senior side following on from treble goal hauls against Manchester United last season, and Brentford earlier this campaign.

A win over Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon could also move the title-chasing Blues into joint-top position alongside rivals Liverpool, who travel to take on Manchester United in the Premier League later in the weekend schedule.

Manchester City have a similar list of injury concerns heading into the clash at Selhurst Park, while Ederson could make a return having made progress on a thigh injury. Kyle Walker continues to battle for recovery before the trip to Real Madrid in midweek.

Ahead of kick-off in South London, here is how both Oliver Glasner and Pep Guardiola have lined-up their respective Crystal Palace and Manchester City sides for the clash at Selhurst Park!
