Man City will head into the tie with a staggering 14-point gap between themselves and table-topping Liverpool.

But while the Citizens look unlikely to clinch a third successive league title, their form of late has been pretty impressive.

The Sky Blues comprehensively beat Aston Villa by six goals to one in their last clash. City have now picked up five wins from their last five outings across all competitions.

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, have mustered up just one victory in their previous five PL outings, although three of those games ended as draws.

Guardiola on Laporte & Sane

Ahead of the Palace clash, Pep Guardiola has spoken about two of City’s long-term injury casualties.

Aymeric Laporte has been out of action since the back end of August, after the Frenchman picked up an injury vs Brighton.

Leroy Sane has also missed the majority of the campaign, after suffering an injury in the Community Shield.

And while the duo don’t sound as though they will be back for Saturday, Guardiola did give fairly positive updates on both when speaking on Friday:

“Yes, positive. Leroy is still not training with us but everything is going really well.

“Aymeric made another week with us training.

“Everyone else is more or less fit, yeah.” As quoted by Manchester City’s official website.
