Manchester City will be expected to find a fifth straight Premier League win on Sunday evening when they host Crystal Palace, following on from a midweek victory against Brighton.

Pep Guardiola’s side look to be hitting their stride and are on a formidable run at present, while also possessing the best defensive record in the top flight - though they have only scored eight times across the last six games, perhaps hinting that there’s still another gear they could yet find.

Palace will be wary of that, but showed a good defensive level of performance themselves in midweek as they frustrated Arsenal to take a 0-0 draw.

The last time City failed to win a league game was against 19th-placed West Brom, their final match with Slaven Bilic in charge before parting ways with the Croat in favour of Sam Allardyce, while Palace’s last win came against 20th-place Sheffield United - their only victory in the last eight in all competitions.

Defenders Nathan Ake and Aymeric Laporte remain sidelined for Man City. Eric Garcia and Sergio Aguero are still doubts, but changes could come with Kyle Walker, Gabriel Jesus or Ferran Torres coming into the line-up.

Palace have Gary Cahill and Scott Dann both back from injury, but they might have to wait for a spot in the team after a clean sheet against Arsenal. However, the likes of Martin Kelly, Mamadou Sakho, Jeffrey Schlupp and Nathan Ferguson are all still out injured.

Confirmed line-ups

Man City XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Sterling, Jesus

Odds

City - 1/5

Draw - 37/5

Prediction

A Sunday evening stroll for Pep Guardiola and Co. They might have to be patient to break down Hodgson’s massed ranks, but there’s confidence within City’s squad and several attackers in good form. Man City 3-0 Palace.
