Manchester City face another very tough game against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The Eagles won the reverse fixture 3-2 earlier in the season thanks to a potential goal of the season by Andros Townsend.

Crystal Palace also drew 0-0 with City at Selhurst Park last season; therefore, Pep Guardiola is fully aware of the challenge that Roy Hodgson’s men will offer.

Perhaps that did have a factor on how, in my opinion, Guardiola got the team wrong on Tuesday night against Tottenham Hotspur, because he rested key players for this tough encounter.

However, if it means that City can get a win on Sunday and turn around the tie against Spurs, he would surely have made the right decision. Football is a game of results, at the end of the day.

Guardiola announced in his press conference that Oleksandr Zinchenko and Bernardo Silva are in contention for Sunday. Even if they do not play, both are huge boosts for the next few weeks.

However, it appears that the rest of the squad is fully fit and because of the big absences in the week, the team against Crystal Palace should be very strong.

Here’s how I think Guardiola will set his team out.
