Man City left to question priorities for Crystal Palace visit

Man City left to question priorities for Crystal Palace visit

City supporters were asking that when Sane had to wait until the 89th minute before coming on in last Tuesday's Champions League defeat at Tottenham.

"I have said many times how important Leroy has been for us in good or bad moments".

"Sometimes we have made decisions that are hard to understand but, because we won, everybody said we were geniuses".

But Guardiola said his side were strong despite the first leg setback.

Any positive result for Palace would surely be welcomed by Liverpool fans, who are waiting for City to slip up in their remaining Premier League games. "There are games when we concede a goal and we are not there but in this case we conceded a goal and nothing happened".

Awesome, his [Ramsey] performances in this moment for us", Emery told reporters. "His focus is very big, he's thinking of Arsenal only".

"That's true (it is a unsafe game)", said Guardiola.

"Of course we want to do well, especially in the Champions League but in that case in this specific game I don't think I agree".

Oleksandr Zinchenko and Bernardo Silva are back in contention are minor muscle injuries, but are likely to be kept in reserve and rested for Tottenham, with Danilo, Benjamin Mendy, Sane and De Bruyne among those set to return.

City can not afford any slip-ups with Liverpool two points clear at the top of the table - and Guardiola said he is not concerned about the pressure growing on his players as they fight for the Quadruple.

City travel to Crystal Palace trailing Jurgen Klopp's men by two points, but still with the title in their hands thanks to a game in hand. "We know what we are playing for and we are going to prepare well", added Guardiola.

It's a big task but we'll do our best.
