Crystal Palace v Manchester City
How do you stop Manchester City? That’s the question Crystal Palace fans will be asking themselves ahead of Sunday’s game, and I’m sure Roy Hodgson and his staff will be wondering the same thing.
Pep Guardiola’s side has been in emphatic form this season. The Citizens are unbeaten in the league and have won all but one game they’ve played. Their players are scoring goals, and they’re conceding very few. It’ll be tough to beat them.
Hodgson has had a positive impact since joining Palace. The Eagles have risen to 16th in the Premier League table but still, face a relegation dogfight. Hodgson would’ve been pleased with the way his side fought against Arsenal in midweek but will be disappointed that they came away with nothing.
The former England manager may have to accept zero points again on Sunday as it’s hard to look past Manchester City in their current form.

West Brom v Arsenal
Arsene Wenger will be really pleased with the character his side have shown in the past two matches. Against Liverpool, the Gunners fought back from 2-0 down to draw 3-2, and against Palace on Thursday evening, they showed enough character to put hold tight for a 3-2 win.
Wenger will know that his side has enough quality to beat Alan Pardew’s West Brom on Sunday. Albion has struggled this season and Pardew has so far failed to have the desired impact. They currently sit in 19th place, just two points above bottom club Swansea. If the Welsh side manages 3 points against Watford in new boss Carlos Carvalhal’s first game, then West Brom would go bottom if they fail to pick up anything at home against Arsenal.
