Manchester City vs Crystal Palace

Christian Benteke

City enjoyed a lot of possession in the opening period of the game and Palace had Wayne Hennessey to thank for the deadlock not being broken on thirteen minutes.

Sane, 21, started for just the second time this season as City beat West Brom in the League Cup, taking their return to six wins and a draw from their seven league and cup games.

The 28-year-old's treble last weekend scored him a whopping 30 points, making him Dream Team's player of Game Week 5.

Manchester City's star-studded attack was simply too good for Crystal Palace at the Etihad on Saturday, with the Citizens putting five past Roy Hodgson's strugglers.

The Premier League leaders will be without Ilkay Gundogan for the Palace clash. Manchester City have won their last three games 5-0, 6-0 and 5-0.

"We had it but the ball needed to stay as little as possible in our feet before being moved".

Sane made the crucial breakthrough in the 44th when the game was relatively even despite Palace being rock-bottom without a point or goal this season.

Meanwhile, Palace are yet to register a win in the league this term and are the only club in the Premier League, who have failed to score in their first six matches.

Hodgson's first game in charge on Saturday ended in a 1-0 defeat by Southampton, condemning Palace to a fifth successive English Premier League loss without scoring a goal.

With Manchester United and Chelsea next up, things could get significantly worse for Hodgson's side before they get better but the new manager believes there are positive signs, particularly with Sakho back in contention.

"I am learning about the team all the time and they are learning", said Hodgson.

Sterling then tapped home his second - and City's third - eight minutes later, Sergio Aguero netted 11 minutes from fulltime, and Fabian Delph's thunderbolt at the death added the finishing gloss to a result which ensures City stay top of the table, on goal difference, above rivals Manchester United.

"Tomorrow, we are going to make a real test", Guardiola said, referring to Mendy's injury.

Our match prediction is 3-0 Manchester City Win. "Business is business. We have a lot of games".

With Sergio Aguero at the top of his game once more, and Jesus back to full fitness and firing on all cylinders, City have a potent attack that most teams simply can not handle.
