Crystal Palace v Man City predicted lineups and match preview

Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace host Manchester City this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 12th September 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Selhurst Park, London

Odds: C. Palace 9/2, Draw 14/5, Man City 8/13

First travel to face second in the Premier League this weekend as Crystal Palace host Manchester City at Selhurst Park.

Palace have enjoyed an impressive start to the campaign, and their 2-1 win away at Chelsea before the international break showed just what Alan Pardew's men can do this season.

However, Pardew must contend with an injury to defender Joel Ward this weekend, with Adrian Mariappa or Martin Kelly likely to deputise at right back.

Connor Wickham is a doubt in attack, meaning Dwight Gayle or Patrick Bamford will come in to the side, whilst Marouane Chamakh is also missing.

Title favourites Manchester City beat Watford 2-0 before the international break, with Raheem Sterling hitting his first goal for the club.

This weekend, manager Manuel Pellegrini will be without injured playmaker David Silva, with new signing Kevin De Bruyne most likely to replace him in midfield.

Fabian Delph misses out after his injury whilst playing for England, though Bacary Sagna has shrugged off a knock and should keep his place in the team.
