Manchester City look to break back into the top four with a win at home to Crystal Palace this evening. The Blues will hope a fifth consecutive Premier League win may lift expectations of a title push around the Etihad Stadium.

Here's how Pep Guardiola's lined up for this one...

In goal, Ederson will have to deal with the threat Palace posses in attack - namely Wilfried Zaha. At right-back, Kyle Walker comes in to deal with just that threat, with Oleksandr Zinchenko taking up the left-back spot. That, of course, leaves the solid centre-back pairing of Ruben Dias and John Stones

That leaves a front three. Bernardo Silva keeps his spot after a string of impressive performances. Raheem Sterling, despite missing a penalty in midweek, also get's the nod. That leaves Gabriel Jesus, who will lead the line.
