Manchester City have hit form again after draws with Nottingham Forest and RB Leipzig and will look to carry that momentum into their trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola's side trail Arsenal by five points in the Premier League title race and host Leipzig in the Champions League round of 16 second leg three days after their journey to London.

Patrick Vieira is under pressure in south London having overseen a poor run of Palace form, with the Eagles without a league win since New Year's Eve.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the match on Saturday evening.

Crystal Palace team news

Palace are without Cheick Doucoure after he was sent off in their game against Aston Villa. Both Sam Johnstone and Nathan Ferguson are absent with injuries.

Any of Naouirou Ahamada, Will Hughes or James McArthur could be chosen by Vieira to take Doucoure's place in midfield alongside Albert Sambi Lokonga. He is the only serious absentee Vieira would otherwise like in his starting XI.

Crystal Palace predicted lineup vs Man City

Crystal Palace predicted XI vs Man City (4-3-3): Guaita; Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Hughes, Lokonga, Eze; Ayew, Zaha, Olise.

Man City team news

There is a chance City will have their entire squad available for selection on Saturday evening. Phil Foden was back in training this week despite having an ongoing foot problem.

It seems Kyle Walker's place is not under threat after being investigated by police for exposing himself in a bar. Pep Guardiola has some decisions to make at centre-back as both Aymeric Laporte and John Stones need to build fitness after being out injured.

Man City predicted lineup vs Crystal Palace

Man City predicted XI vs Crystal Palace (4-3-3): Ederson; Lewis, Akanji, Dias, Ake; Bernardo, Rodri, De Bruyne; Foden, Haaland, Grealish.

Crystal Palace vs Man City score prediction

Despite City needing to contend with the second leg against RB Leipzig on Tuesday evening, it is hard to envisage Palace having enough to stop Guardiola's side, even if the visitors do rotate.

Palace have been able to grab some interesting results against City in recent years but given the poor form the Eagles have slipped into, they do not seem well-placed to shock the Premier League champions.

Prediction: Crystal Palace 0-2 Man City
