Manchester City vs Crystal Palace Preview

Manchester City XI

What they saidMan City boss Pep Guardiola (on Sane): "He didn't have a good pre-season, he was not good in the first pre-season games".

The Citizens went head-to-head with struggling Palace at the Etihad this afternoon, with the two sides on markedly differing runs of form.

Sterling added his second eight minutes later from Sergio Aguero's low cross before the Argentina forward netted the fourth and Fabian Delph rounded off the rout late on.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany could be back in contention for the visit of the Premier League's bottom side Crystal Palace on Saturday. They will confront a City team who are top and have scored 11 goals in their past two league games alone, without reply.

Leroy Sane has scored five goals from just six shots on target in all competitions for Man City this season.

Palace will hand Mamadou Sakho his first Premier League start since returning to the club from Liverpool, with Timothy Fosu-Mensah expected to move to right-back and Luka Milivojevic drafted into defensive midfield. Honestly, the Belgian needs to return to extended action soon as the manager is being forced to think about his captain's very bad injury record with each week that goes by.

Guardiola, however, did say he is "more convinced" of City's quality this season, after an offseason outlay of around $300 million.

Kim Jong Un: 'Deranged' Trump to 'pay dearly'
The comments were released on official state media. "We have more than enough to concern ourselves with in our everyday lives". No nation on Earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles.

"We go into every game trying to win it and I don't think we will ever set our sights not to".

Writing in his weekly predictions feature for the BBC website, Lawrenson said if Palace get anything out of the game, it will be a bonus for the Eagles. Gabriel is an awesome player.

"We tried to convince him to be involved in the way we want to play, to be not just like a striker heading the ball in the box and scoring a goal". Another player that is establishing himself as a threat in the City team this year is Gabriel Jesus. The Eagles did manage to beat Huddersfield in the third round of Carabao Cup on Tuesday, but they would need an "out-of-the-world" performance if they aim to get anything out of this game.

Given the form guide for this one, it is definitely hard to look beyond a Manchester City win. That could lead to corners in the first half as Palace try to clear their lines and are under constant pressure. His mother and father gave him that talent.

"Guardiola admits that Aguero does not always look the most enthusiastic player on the training ground, but always sees him come to life on a matchday".

"Recognition in the media and prizes are OK for 10 minutes and then after that they disappear".
