City are two points behind leaders Liverpool (who play later on Sunday against Chelsea) heading into this game, but crucially have a game in hand on their title rivals. The equation for Man City is now simple: win all of their last seven games and they will be crowned back-to-back Premier League champions.
As for Palace, their big win at Newcastle last time out means they are all but safe of relegation with Roy Hodgson‘s side picking up some big wins at home in recent weeks. They are extremely capable of causing an upset here, and won 3-2 away at Man City earlier this season.
In team news Palace start Christian Benteke up front, and the duo of Zaha and Townsend out wide.
