Crystal Palace v Man City, Premier League

Crystal Palace v Man City, Premier League

Chelsea will be looking to spoil Liverpool's title hopes yet again.

But Palace showed a flicker of attacking life soon afterwards, Milivojevic crossing and Christian Benteke heading down before City hacked clear.

Raheem Sterling's brace for Manchester City was his first ever double away from home for the Citizens, last scoring a few times on the road in any club competition back in December 2014 for Liverpool against Bournemouth.

One of Liverpool's big boosts heading into the match is the return of the marauding Scottish left wing back Andrew Robertson.

City began the second half in the same dominant way, De Bruyne narrowly failing to play Sergio Aguero through and Guaita gathering well when a De Bruyne cross deflected off Martin Kelly. In addition, Joe Gomez is available after a long injury layoff while Adam Lallana is expected to take part as well.

"It's about taking care [of the game], getting three points".

But are we sure we know all the people in that shot? But just in case you needed further proof of that, we've got just the thing. And in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame , we might just be seeing all this tense history come to a head.

Two points still separate them at the top of the table and City still have that game in hand.

City can not afford any slip-ups with Liverpool two points clear at the top of the table - and Guardiola said he is not concerned about the pressure growing on his players as they fight for the Quadruple.

Last week, Huddersfield lost 4-1 at home to Leicester City, contributing to an unfortunate run of 18 defeats in their last 20 league matches.

The Blues travel down to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace on Sunday, and Guardiola admitted that he has been impressed with the progress Roy Hodgson's side have made over the past year. Andros Townsend's world-class strike helped to prove the difference.

Guardiola attracted criticism for what was seen as a conservative team selection against Spurs in midweek, leaving both Kevin de Bruyne and Leroy Sane on the bench until the final minute, while peripheral figures Fabian Delph and Riyad Mahrez started. "We lost two games in the last 23 and the way we lost ..."
