The final month of the 2020/21 Premier League season kicks off at Selhurst Park when Crystal Palace host Man City this weekend.


While the visitors could take a giant step towards wrapping up the league title, this clash is sandwiched between both legs of City's Champions League semi-final against PSG, so it would be somewhat understandable if Pep Guardiola's attention were not fully focused on this trip to the capital.

City's involvement in the League Cup final last weekend meant they sat out the most recent round of Premier League fixtures, with a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa coming in their last league outing.

Man Utd's slip-up against Leeds means their local rivals need just six points to secure a fifth Premier League title and a third under Guardiola.

As for Palace, they're currently 13th in the league and would need a superb finish to the campaign in order to secure a top-half finish. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Crystal Palace v Man City on TV and online.

Crystal Palace v Man City team news

Crystal Palace: James McArthur is definitely out for the hosts, while Gary Cahill should be fit after a recent knock.

Mamadou Sakho, James Tomkins, Wayne Hennessey and Nathan Ferguson all remain sidelined.

Man City: John Stones is unavailable following the red card he picked up last time against Villa, but he remains the only absentee for Guardiola.

With the second leg against PSG to come just three days later, City may opt to rest some of their key players, much as they did ahead of the quarter-final meeting with Dortmund.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace v Man City

Palace have actually proven to be tough opponents for City in recent years, with the Blues dropping points in three of the last six encounters.

With City's attention very much on the Champions League, their league performance could suffer - as it did before the second leg of the quarter-finals when they lost to Leeds.

For that reason, there could be an upset on the cards at Selhurst Park this weekend and perhaps one last memorable victory for Roy Hodgson in the Premier League.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Man City (10/1 at bet365)
