The Manchester City vs Crystal Palace live stream sees one of the Premier League’s all-time-great managers, Pep Guardiola, take on one of the Premier Leagues all-time-great players, Patrick Viera, who has made the move to the dug-out.
Manchester City lost a League Cup tie for the first time in five seasons on Wednesday, as they were defeated on penalties by West Ham. The champions continue to fly in the league, though, having beaten Burnley and Brighton following their dramatic 2-2 draw with Liverpool.
Crystal Palace had no mid-week concerns, having already been knocked out of the competition by Watford back in August. The visitors are still likely to be reeling from a last-minute equaliser against Arsenal and a disallowed winner from Christian Benteke against Newcastle in their last two premier league outings.
Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne is struggling to meet the high standards he has previously set for himself this season, but there are plenty of stars to fill in for him. Phil Foden is in great form, while summer-signing Jack Grealish is also looking increasingly comfortable in sky blue.
Despite having one disallowed, Crystal Palace will be delighted that Benteke did get amongst the goals last week. His contribution could prove vital as their season goes on, though he's only on the bench today. Midfielder Conor Gallagher, on loan from Chelsea, has also caught the eye with some impressive performances in the early part of the campaign.
Patrick Viera will be delighted that Wilfred Zaha has recovered from illness and can feature. Jordan Ayew and Cheikhou Kouyate also return. For the home side, Ferran Torres is out with a metatarsal injury picked up on international duty.
Here's how they line up:
Manchester City: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne, Jesus, Foden, Grealish.
Crystal Palace: Guaita, Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, Gallagher, Kouyate, McArthur, Zaha, Ayew, Edouard.

The Manchester City vs Crystal Palace live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?
The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to NBCSN, Peacock or another service and watch the game.
