Patrick Vieira will feel somewhat aggrieved that his Crystal Palace side only have nine points in as many Premier League matches this season, with the Frenchman seeing his team lose a number of winning positions and the latest came against Newcastle United where the Eagles were in the ascendancy until Callum Wilson scored an equaliser.

The London side will now head to the Etihad Stadium and Patrick Vieira will return to a club where he was in charge of the training academy in 2013. There have been four consecutive draws and the visitors landing a point in this fixture would be a major coup considering that the home side are hitting their stride.

Phil Foden was at the double to help the Citizens to score a decisive 4-1 victory at the AMEX Stadium, with Pep Guardiola’s side having previously scored five goals away at Club Brugge and the manager will be able to rotate his squad and bring players such as Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Fernandinho back into the fold.

It’s noticeable that City have kept clean sheets in all four of their home matches this season, so we can combine a home win with a shut out against a Palace team who will undoubtedly spend plenty of this clash on the back foot.
