Manchester City can move to within two points of the Premier League summit if they can come away with all three points from Saturday’s trip to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace.
With Premier League leaders Arsenal featuring in the Europa League on Thursday, and therefore having their Premier League match pushed to Sunday, it gives Man City the chance to put pressure on the Gunners with a positive result the day prior.
Man City boss Pep Guardiola has a fully fit squad and is looking to charge forward in a late-season push to take advantage of any Arsenal slip-ups. City are seeking to become only the second team in Premier League history to win three straight titles.
For Crystal Palace, they are just hoping to avoid falling into the relegation battle. The Eagles have gone 10 matches without a win and are slowly slipping down the table, currently sitting 12th with just a five-point gap from the drop zone.

Crystal Palace vs Man City lineups, team news
There are no new injuries for Patrick Vieira to work around. Cheick Doucoure is suspended after being sent off against Aston Villa last weekend, while goalkeeper Sam Johnstone is out for a month with a calf injury. Otherwise, there are no new concerns for the squad from a fitness perspective.
Crystal Palace projected starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Guaita (GK) — Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell — Lokonga, Hughes — Zaha, Olise, Schlupp — Ayew.
Every single Man City player is fit and ready to participate in this match. Phil Foden has dealt with a foot injury all season which he aggravated against Newcastle, but Guardiola indicated he’s still fit enough for selection.
John Stones and Aymeric Laporte have dealt with an illness recently but have both returned to training. Any fallout from the Kyle Walker situation could have an impact on his playing time, but there has been no indication either way.
Man City projected starting lineup (3-6-1): Ederson (GK) — Akanji, Dias, Ake — Mahrez, Gundogan, Rodri, B. Silva, De Bruyne, Grealish — Haaland.

Crystal Palace vs Man City betting odds
Thanks to the betting market’s longtime love affair with Man City and a poor Crystal Palace run of form, the odds on this match are swung wildly in favour of the visitors at Selhurst Park. Goals are expected to flow as well, while it will be tough for Palace to find the back of the net.
Palace’s ability to keep Man City at bay of late, with a pair of clean sheets in their last three meetings, has muted the excitement around the over 2.5 total goals, but the handicap spread indicates the market still expects Pep Guardiola to engineer a multi-goal victory.
