Manchester City host Crystal Palace after a unexpected goalless stalemate with Everton in front of their home fans. Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini also has admitted his team’s style of play is becoming unpredictable.
City will be hoping to bounce back with a comprehensive victory against the Eagles after the draw. Sergio Aguero will be eagerly waiting to find the back of the net at the Etihad to help his team seal all three points tonight.
Meanwhile, Palace step into the fixture following a narrow 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa, who are struggling in the league this season. Their last win in the league was against Stoke City on 19th December and Palace are without a victory in EPL for close to a month.
Alan Pardew’s team has struggled in their last five fixtures played in all competitions as they have managed just one win that also came in the FA Cup, where they defeated Southampton 2-1. The visitors will also be desperately looking to bounce back when they face Manchester City.
Here is the starting lineup for both Manchester City and Crystal Palace.
