CRY vs MCI Dream11 : Hurting Manchester City take on a Crystal Palace side which has left them perplexed over the last two seasons
The opening exchanges of the 2019-20 edition of the Premier League haven’t quite gone Manchester City’s way. From being heavily touted to yet again dominate the league and take a swift lead in the early gameweeks itself, last year’s champions have floundered and faltered in their bid to make it a third win in succession.
After being thumped and completely outplayed by Wolverhampton in their previous 2-0 defeat in the league, Manchester City are now trailing Liverpool by 8 points, a deficit so colossal in magnitude that faint noises of he league already being Liverpool’s have started taking shape. However with us being in just October and an entirety of the league left to play, Manchester City will be well aware that things are far from done when it comes to deciding the champions of the season.
And one more thing which they’ll do well to learn quickly is that they need to start reciprocating the displays of the bygone season. The margins of further errors are not there with the side knowing they can’t afford to slip up even a sole point in their pursuit for the prestigious trophy when they take on Crystal Place today.
While City have always been a side to come hot out of the blocks after being defeated, today’s opponents are more than just pushovers. This is a side which has massively perturbed Manchester City, pushing them to the fore of their resources in the bygone seasons, something which will make Manchester City extremely cautions and way ahead of today’s upcoming encounter.

CRY vs MCI Dream11 Goal-Keeper
If Crystal Palace are going to have any chance of pulling off a draw today, leave aside a win, they’ll be needing their goal-keeper, Vincent Guaita to pull off a worldclass display. His going is going to be petered, plundered and come under an absolute carnage by a City side who’ll be ruthless and relentless in ther attacking plays. It’s this nature of the saves he looks set to pull off which sees us opt for him for this encounter.
CRY vs MCI Dream11 Defenders
Manchester City have massive issues in defence with the side suffering a spate of injury issues to their CBs, ones which have massively pegged them back in their quest of going on a winning spree but today’s opponents might just be the side they find solace against. Crystal Palace haven’t done much on the attacking front and with City set to be the dominant side in this clash, we envision them pulling off a cleansheet.
This sees us bring in the three defenders from the side in the form of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Nicholas Otamendi and Joao Cancelo while fro the opposition we have the one pick come in as well for us in the form of CB Martin Kelly.
CRY vs MCI Dream11 Midfielders
He was out for just one game for Manchester City but the side’s display in that 2-0 defeat to Wolverhampton emphasised how pivotal and critical Kevin De Bruyne is to this Manchester City. The focal point of the side’s midfield, he’s someone who adds tangibility and stability to the side’s attacks, seamlessly blending in the ball from defence to attack for them.
CDM Rodri comes in as well for us while from the opposition we are bringing in Wilfred Zaha and Luka Milivojevic who returns after having been out previously due a red card.
CRY vs MCI Dream11 Strikers
Both are players come in from Manchester City, both names who look the likeliest to score for them today. In Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, City have two indispensible players, names the side have relied on massively to outrightly take the onus on themselves and deliver decisive match winning displays which the two have been more than ready to do for the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Aguero will be our captain for the match while KDB is being selected as the vice-captain.
