Back super City to smash toothless Palace

Raheem Sterling is one of Manchester City's many attacking threats
1 of 1

Premier League

Manchester City have been racking up some big wins but may have to show some patience against Crystal Palace, who will be striving to impress new manager Roy Hodgson.

Taking any points out of the fixture will be a tall order for the away side but they are likely to defend with plenty of resilience in an attempt to a avoid a heavy, confidence-sapping defeat.

Palace may keep the score respectable but will struggle to make an impact at the other end.
