Man City enter the fixture in fifth place in the standings on 32 points, four behind leaders and rivals Man United – though the situation could change depending on how the Red Devils fare against Liverpool this afternoon – and with a four-game win streak to their name, having beaten Brighton last time out. City will be looking to extend that winning run and potentially enter the top three against visitors Palace, who are 13th-placed ahead of the meeting in Manchester.
Roy Hodgson’s side have one win in their last five, as well as two defeats and two draws – their last outing seeing the points shared against Arsenal. Positioned 11 points above the relegation zone, Palace should not become complacent but have somewhat of a free hit against Guardiola’s team, especially considering their draw against the Gunners in their last game – from which the Eagles were unlucky not to emerge victorious. Follow all the build-up, team news, live action and post-match reaction from the Premier League fixture below at the conclusion of Liverpool vs Manchester United.
