Palace are still on zero points at the bottom of the table after five games.

However, City boss Guardiola does have some serious selection dilemmas after a string of fine performances from Leroy Sane in recent games could see him pick up his first start in the Premier League since the 21 August. The Sky Blues could go top with a win this weekend and will fancy their chances given Palace's woeful start in 2017/18.

"He didn't make a good pre-season, he was not good in those games and he didn't deserve to play", he said.

This is the battle between the first and the last placed team of the current Premier League table.

Chelsea are just behind them having overcome a poor start to the season against Burnley and the trio's efforts have further convinced Thompson that they will be the main title challengers.

Chelsea and Manchester City were the biggest winners on a goal-packed day of Premier League action, while there were also victories for Tottenham, Manchester United, Watford, Everton and Liverpool.

"We have to be creative and provoke the situations and we didn't for most of the time in the first half".

Ashley Barnes scored the opener for Burnley whilst Wijnaldum and Can scored in each half to make it 2-1. Only Emre Can, Joel Matip , Roberto Firmino and Salah kept their place.

In Manchester, Sane's brilliant first-half goal for City seemed somewhat undeserved but Palace struggled to cope with their slick football in the second half.

Along with this, Guardiola's side have scored 16 goals, while Hodgson's men are yet to find the net.

Palace almost took a shock lead in the 19th minute Ruben Loftus-Cheek cut inside before unleashing a low effort that crashed against the upright.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed that new signing Benjamin Mendy has helped bring in a lot of energy into the team. He has to be so proud, and Manchester City have to be so proud of that. We have a lot of games. "We need to keep improving and working hard".

"Now I have five strikers", he said, ominously, "and all of them deserve to play".

"He's going to have a scan tomorrow, but it will mean he won't be playing in the next game [against Manchester United], I'm pretty sure of that, which we could do without at this moment in time!".
