Manchester City 4-0 Crystal Palace Live broadcast! Stones, Gundogan goals – latest score, Premier League matches broadcast, updates
Man City looks to step up the challenge for their title as they host Crystal Palace tonight at Etihad.
The midweek victory over Brighton lifted City to third in the Premier League, four points adrift of leaders Manchester United with a game in hand.
City builds slowly but surely after a tough start to the 2020/21 season, but looks tight at the back and is doing enough at the other end to pick up points while going somewhat.
In the meantime, Palas put on a disciplined defensive display to earn an excellent point away to Arsenal in the middle of the week and he will definitely need more of the same here.
Eagles’ defense was impressive in North London last time, but two tough tests in quick succession will stretch Roy Hodgson’s side to the extreme.
