Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Crystal Palace

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday evening.

Manchester City will endeavour to win their eighth match in a row across all competitions when they welcome Crystal Palace to the Etihad Stadium for Sunday's Premier League encounter.

A Phil Foden goal was enough for Pep Guardiola's men to see off Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0 on Wednesday evening, with that result extending their unbeaten run to 14 matches since November's defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Citizens' title charge is gathering pace and they rose to third in the table with that victory over the Seagulls, and only four points separate City from table-toppers and arch-rivals Manchester United, who have played a game more.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's visit of Palace.


Sergio Aguero

Sergio Aguero remains in self-isolation after coming into contact with an individual who tested positive for coronavirus, so he will play no part against Palace.


Aymeric Laporte
