Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will be without three players for the game against Crystal Palace at the Etihad tomorrow evening.
Sergio Aguero remains out of contention as he continues to self-isolate. He has already missed matches versus Birmingham and Brighton. Aymeric Laporte (hamstring) and Nathan Ake (muscular) are also still sidelined but Eric Garcia is back in training.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Face Crystal Palace:
Ederson, Walker, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Torres, Jesus, Sterling
Eagles boss Roy Hodgson would have been pleased with his side’s display in the 0-0 draw against Arsenal during the week and he’ll be hoping to replicate that performance tomorrow.
He currently has six players on the treatment table. Wayne Hennessey, Nathan Ferguson (thigh), Martin Kelly (calf), Mamadou Sakho (thigh), Connor Wickham and Jeffrey Schlupp (thigh) are all unavailable.
Crystal Palace’s Predicted XI:
Guaita, Ward, Tomkins, Kouyate, Mitchell, Townsend, McArthur, Milivojevic, Eze, Benteke, Zaha
The bookies have made City heavy favourites with Betfred pricing them at 1/6 odds-on for the win. A draw is 7/1 with Betfair while a Palace victory is 18/1 at Betway.
Predicted Score – 2-0 to City
