Crystal Palace will attempt to bounce back from successive defeats and claim another scalp at Manchester City on Saturday.

The Eagles are six points above the relegation zone with three to play, and will be wary of the form shown by drop rivals Swansea given Sam Allardyce's men also face a trip to Manchester United on the final day.

Palace have already beaten Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool in recent weeks, and a shock win at City will all-but secure their place in the top flight for a fourth-straight season.

But City face a battle of their own to make the top four with United and Arsenal breathing down their necks.
