Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Crystal Palace could line up for their Premier League clash with Manchester City on Saturday lunchtime.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson once again has several injury concerns to work around for the visit of Premier League champions-elect Manchester City on Saturday lunchtime.

There is optimism that Gary Cahill could return in time for the weekend, but his fellow defenders Nathan Ferguson, James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho all occupy spots in the treatment room.

As a result, Scott Dann and Cheikhou Kouyate should continue in the heart of defence, with Joel Ward and Patrick Van Aanholt set to reprise their roles out wide.

James McArthur may not be ready to return from a calf problem in time for this match, but James McCarthy is raring to go and could push Jairo Riedewald for a start alongside Luka Milivojevic in the middle.

Andros Townsend may just lose out to Jordan Ayew on the right-hand side, while Eberechi Eze is in no danger of losing his spot on the left after setting up Wilfried Zaha for the opening goal in their defeat to Leicester City.

Zaha's 10th goal of the season at the King Power saw him follow in Milivojevic's footsteps as the second player to score 10 goals for Palace in two separate Premier League campaigns, and the Ivory Coast international is likely to be partnered up top by Christian Benteke once more.

Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Guaita; Ward, Kouyate, Dann, Van Aanholt; Ayew, Milivojevic, McCarthy, Eze; Zaha, Benteke
