Manchester City will lock horns with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in Gameweek 34 of the 2020/21 Premier League this afternoon (Saturday).
With 18th-placed Fulham a whopping 11 points adrift, it is safe to assume that the Eagles are not dropping down to the Championship.
Having said that, Roy Hodgson’s men have tailed off a bit lately, winning just once since the end of February, although their fixture run has been quite horrendous as well.
The champions in waiting, on the other hand, have been on quite a roll since the turn of the year, leaving neighbours and second-placed Manchester United far behind.
The ten-point gap is practically insurmountable, and it is highly likely that the Citizens will lift the Premier League title for a third time under Pep Guardiola.
The visitors will further be buoyed by their crucial 2-1 win over PSG in the UEFA Champions League this week.
Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita, Ward, Kouyate, Dann, Aanholt, Ayew, Milivojevic, Riedewald, Eze, Zaha, Benteke
Man City XI (4-3-3): Moraes, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Mendy, Silva, Fernandinho, Zinchenko, Torres, Jesus, Sterling
