Preview

Manchester City head into the game having won four out of last five Premier League games, leaving City 10 points clear of second place.

Guardiola’s side require just two more wins to secure a third league title in four years, however victory over Palace and defeat for United against Liverpool could see us crowned champions this Sunday.

The hosts come into the clash having won just one of their last seven, including a 2-1 defeat away to Leicester City in their most recent outing.

Both managers will look to bring out a positive result in this one.

Which team will come out in front?
