Man City vs Crystal Palace lineups

Erling Haaland missed out once again with a foot injury, meaning Julian Alvarez starts at the centre of the attack.

Rico Lewis slots into midfield ahead of Mateo Kovacic and Matheus Nunes. Winger Jeremy Doku (thigh) remains sidelined.

Man City lineup (4-3-3, right to left): Ederson (GK) — Walker, Dias, Ake, Gvardiol — Lewis, Rodri, Silva — Foden,  Alvarez, Grealish.

As well as his side’s poor form, Hodgson is also dealing with an increasing injury list at Palace, with Sam Johnstone and Odsonne Edouard joining the absentees. The former’s absence means an Eagles Premier League debut for fellow England goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who returns from a thigh injury of his own.

Striker Jordan Ayew also misses out due to a one-game ban after being sent off in last weekend’s loss to Liverpool, although Michael Olise is back in the starting lineup and Eberechi Eze returns to the bench.

Crystal Palace lineup (5-4-1, right to left): Henderson (GK) — Clyne, Ward, Anderson, Guehi, Mitchell— Olise, Riedewald, Richards, Schlupp — Mateta.

Man City vs Crystal Palace prediction

Palace have caused problems for Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium in previous years with two wins and a draw in their last five Premier League trips to Manchester.

However, the injuries and speculation over Hodgson’s job will be a weakening factor going into this tie, with City looking to avoid any slip-ups before jetting off to the Club World Cup.

City have not won a home Premier eague match since November 4, as they hammered Bournemouth 6-1, and this clash should be straightforward for the home side.

Prediction: Man City 3-0 Crystal Palace
