Pep Guardiola's side welcome Sam Allardyce's Eagles to the Etihad Stadium seeking to cement their standing inside the Premier League's top four

Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane have returned to the Manchester City starting lineup for their Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.

The pair began City's 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough on the bench last week, but Pep Guardiola has returned them to the first XI for the Palace clash.

The Catalan coach has also decided to use Fernandinho in a right-back berth once again, while his fellow Brazilian Gabriel Jesus leads the line up front.

Kompany: People want Pep to fail

Sergio Aguero, John Stones and Claudio Bravo are all nursing knocks and miss out as a result.

City head into the game seeking to cement their top-four standing and offer no added incentive to Manchester United ahead of their meeting with Arsenal on Sunday.

Man City team: Caballero, Fernandinho, Kompany (c), Otamendi, Clichy, Yaya Toure, Sterling, De Bruyne, Silva, Sane, Gabriel Jesus. Subs: Gunn, Sagna, Zabaleta, Fernando, Kolarov, Navas, Iheanacho.

Crystal Palace team: Hennessey, Ward, Kelly, van Aanholt, Schlupp, Milivojevic, Puncheon, McArthur, Zaha, Townsend, Benteke. Subs: Speroni, Delaney, Flamini, Lee, Sako, Remy, Campbell.
