Manchester City face Crystal Palace on Monday evening, needing a win in order to get back in to second place in the Premier League.
Wins for Arsenal and Manchester United have taken them ahead of the Citizens, and this will heighten the pressure on manager Manuel Pellegrini. Here is the team the Chilean is expected to name…
GK) Joe Hart
In amazing form at the moment, and any doubts over his position in the side are currently forgotten.
RB) Pablo Zabaleta
One of the best full-backs in the world, and surely also one of the first names on the team sheet.
LB) Gael Clichy
Possibly one of the weaknesses in the side, but there are no other options
CB) Vincent Kompany
This season has seen the Belgian lose his all conquering reputation as more and more errors slip in to his game. However, as it stands he is still the captain at the Etihad.
CB) Eliaquim Mangala
At the moment looks like one of the most overpriced defenders in world football, but will be wanting to prove his doubters wrong against the Eagles.
