Team News:

Manchester City
City will again be without the services of Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Ake through injury, while Sergio Aguero is unavailable due to self-isolation rules.

Guardiola revealed during Friday's press conference that Eric Garcia is available once again, though, while Cole Palmer and Scott Carson have also been cleared to return.

The hosts are expected to make changes from the team that started against Brighton, with Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker all pushing for spots in the starting XI.

Walker's expected return could see Joao Cancelo switch to right-back, and there is again likely to be a starting role for Phil Foden, who scored his eighth goal of the campaign last time out.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Foden, Jesus, Sterling

Crystal Palace
As for Palace, Conor Wickham, Jeffrey Schlupp, Mamadou Sakho, Martin Kelly, Wayne Hennessey and Nathan Ferguson remain unavailable for selection this weekend.

The Eagles did not pick up any fresh problems against Arsenal, though, and it would not be a surprise to see Hodgson send the exact same XI onto the field, with Christian Benteke joining Zaha in attack.

As a result, Gary Cahill could find himself on the bench once again, although Jordan Ayew and James McCarthy will be at the front of the queue should the Palace manager decide to shuffle his pack.
Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Guaita; Ward, Tomkins, Kouyate, Mitchell; Townsend, McArthur, Milivojevic, Eze; Zaha, Benteke
Crystal Palace Premier League form: DLLDWD
Crystal Palace form (all competitions): LLDWLD

Prediction: Manchester City 2-0 Crystal Palace
