Manchester City XI vs Crystal Palace: Starting line-up, confirmed squad news & latest injuries for today’s game

Cancelo missed last weekend’s 0-0 draw with Sporting CP in the Champions League through illness but is back in training and set to play at Selhurst Park.

Nathan Ake is back on the bench to bolster City’s defensive options.

As they seek to reaffirm their six-point lead over Liverpool at the top of the Premier League, City are once again without Ruben Dias, who has been ruled out for several weeks with a hamstring problem.

Kyle Walker has been suspended in Europe but is returning to the side as a right-back.

City are facing problems at the back, with Pep Guardiola claiming the squad is stretched ahead of the trip to London.

He said: “We have a small problem, we don’t have many players available. I hope some of them will come back.

With no game midweek and a pressing need to keep winning games as Liverpool pile on the pressure, City have no choice but to name a strong line-up at Selhurst Park.

Manchester City XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, De Bruyne, Bernardo; Mahrez, Foden, Greish.

Subtitles: Steffen, Carson, Ake, Sterling, Gundogan, Jesus, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Mbete.

Time and date: 8 p.m. GMT, Monday March 14

Location: Selhurst Park
