Kevin De Bruyne starts for Manchester City against Crystal Palace this afternoon.

The Belgian lined up next to Ilkay Gundogan and Fernandinho for the midweek defeat to West Ham, on penalties, after his team excelled against Brighton with Rodri and Bernardo Silva starring alongside Gundogan.

City’s embarrassment of talent could have seen De Bruyne back on the bench, but he starts ahead of Gundogan for Pep Guardiola’s 200th Premier League match in charge.

Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus earn recalls after being rested for the Carabao Cup.

That means a complete change in the front three as Phil Foden returns to lead the line, with Riyad Mahrez, Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling dropped to the bench.

At the back, Ederson, Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias were all taken out for the trip to the capital and return today.

Oleksandr Zinchenko started at left-back in the cup and Guardiola has tipped the Ukrainian for more game time in a pre-match hint that his regular full-backs will be rotated, after Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo played 45 minutes each at West Ham.

“If we need him in the middle, he'll play good,” said the coach. “He understands football really well, a huge personality, we are more than delighted with the process. Kyle and Joao have been outstanding but the season is long and we'll need him.”

However, Cancelo and Walker are the full-backs today, with Zinchenko on the bench.

Ferran Torres (foot) and Liam Delap (ankle) are ruled out, along with Benjamin Mendy (police charge).
