It’s the turn of Manchester City this evening as the Premier League title race heats up. Liverpool won the early Saturday kick-off this weekend and closed that gap once more after a successful trip to Brighton.
City’s winning run came to an end with a bore draw against Sporting CP in the Champions League in midweek, but they had already all but sealed their quarter-final spot with a 5-0 thrashing in Lisbon last month.
Looking to deliver a blow to their hopes of retaining the title are a Palace team that continue to make impressive strides under Patrick Vieira, briefly moving up to 10th with a fine win at Wolves last time out that saw Jean-Philippe Mateta and Wilfried Zaha net during a fantastic first-half display at Molineux.
The Eagles know what it takes to beat City too, having triumphed 2-0 at the Etihad in October courtesy of goals from Zaha and Conor Gallagher.
