Team News:
Pep Guardiola will be after an immediate response when his Manchester City side travel to Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
The Citizens suffered a rare defeat in midweek, losing 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie, but all is not lost and they are still on course for an unprecedented quadruple.

Crystal Palace
In terms of the hosts, James Tomkins injured his groin against Newcastle and is considered a serious doubt for this one.

Palace are already without Mamadou Sakho, so Hodgson may have to shuffle his pack slightly by handing Scott Dann just a fourth league start of the season.

Serbian midfielder Milivojevic has scored 10 penalty goals in the Premier League this season - only Andrew Johnson (11 in 2004-05, also with Crystal Palace) has netted more from the spot in a single campaign.

Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Guaita; Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Dann, Van Aanholt; Townsend, McArthur, Milivojevic, Schlupp; Batshuayi, Zaha

Manchester City
Despite the importance of picking up all three points this weekend, Guardiola is still likely to rotate his side slightly between the double-header with Tottenham.

Kevin De Bruyne was surprisingly named on the bench against Spurs on Tuesday and appears certain to start at Selhurst Park, while Gabriel Jesus could be recalled to give Sergio Aguero - far from his best in North London - a breather.

After struggling in midweek, Fabian Delph may also make way, giving Benjamin Mendy an opportunity to get some minutes under his belt.

Elsewhere, Bernardo Silva is still carrying a muscular injury that ruled him out of the Champions League game and Oleksandr Zinchenko is also doubtful.

Head To Head
Palace are aiming to complete the top-flight double over Man City for the first time since the 1972-73 campaign following their 3-2 win at the Etihad Stadium towards the end of last year.

The last non-big six side to beat the Citizens twice in the same Premier League season were Everton in 2010-11.

Man City have won five of their last seven league matches against the Eagles, but they have not beaten their opponents in their last two encounters.
