Vincent Guaita is no longer someone who just works in the backdrop for the club. His lowkey performances are finally being hailed with the player mustering two cleansheets on the bounce.
Injury saw Tyrick Mitchell lose his place in the playing 11 but he’s quickly worked his way back in the side. And his emergence has had a telling effect on the club with the fullback’s ability to clean the ball seeing him keep two shutdowns in a row for the side.
Where Crystal Palace aren’t renowned as an attacking unit, City on the other hand have now kept three successive cleansheets. This encounter has another City cleansheet written all over it to see the quartet of John Stones, Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo be snagged by us.
James McArthur once again played a crucial role for his side against Arsenal. The midfielder did all the dirty work, closing the ball and winning the it as well to ensure Arsenal found no spaces to work with.
He recorded another assist the last time around to see us make 9 assist man Kevin de Bruyne a must have pick from City. He’s joined by Phil Foden who scored the side’s only goal against Brighton.
Crystal Palace’s top scorer in the league with 8 goals and 2 assists, Wilfred Zaha is in the midst of his best season for the club. Raheem Sterling missed City’s penalty the last time around but he continues to remain the side’s top scorer with four goals and three assists.
