There might be more daunting opponents for Manchester City straight after an international break, but given the issues exposed in Pep Guardiola's squad recently the trip to Selhurst Park will put the Blues' ability to find solutions to the test next weekend.

Getting John Stones back to face Crystal Palace will be a major boost, but without him Guardiola may be forced to try and find an alternative at the back.

Given they'd won five games in a row before the defeat to Wolves last weekend City are hardly in crisis, but they lie eight points behind Liverpool at the top of the table and have looked unusually vulnerable at times.

Crystal Palace will be a real tough game."

Guardiola certainly knows how big a threat Palace can be.

Otamendi has looked particularly fragile recently.

City had their problems with Palace last season, too, with Hodgson's win winning 3-2 at the Etihad on December 22, a defeat that was followed by another loss at Leicester City four days later.
