Manchester City have won all nine home games in the Premier League this season so the odds are stacked against Crystal Palace this Saturday. City could end up at the top of the league if Liverpool slip up away to Wolves on Friday. Pep Guardiola already has an embarrassment of talent in his squad and the City manager is able to include Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero once again. Both players started in the League Cup quarter final against Leicester on Tuesday night and De Bruyne reminded us of his quality with a superb goal. Meanwhile, Aguero is two short of 250 career league goals.
City will look for their customary quick start so it's crucial that Palace keep it tight. The Premier League champions have scored a league-high eight goals in the opening 15 minutes of their games but Palace can take some encouragement that City have kept only one clean sheet in their last seven league matches. The last time Palace won a top flight game away to City was a 2-0 victory at Maine Road in December 1990.
