Manchester City can cut their deficit in the Premier League title race to two points if they can beat Crystal Palace today.

Leaders Arsenal are not in action until later in the weekend and may only have a two-point lead if City extend their unbeaten run to eight games with a win in south London.

Taking all three points is not something Palace have enjoyed much of lately, in fact their ten-game winless run stretches all the way back to New Year’s Eve.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Crystal Palace vs Manchester City is scheduled for a 5.30pm GMT kick-off today, Saturday, March 11, 2023.

The match will take place at Selhurst Park in south London.

City have no other known injury concerns at present.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester City prediction

City are gently rolling through the gears and face a Palace side that are really struggling for results and performances.

However, the Eagles have caused them problems in the past and a fully match-sharp Wilfried Zaha will aid their bid to end the season comfortably.

A 1-0 Man City win.
