Full-time here at Selhurst Park. A great performance from City after a dominant performance as Sterling's brace put them two up, Milivojevic grabbed one back but Jesus came on to see it off for the guests. Crystal Palace 1-3 Manchester City.
Substitution for Pep as Sane makes way for Stones.
Final change for Palace as Sako replaces McArthur.
This could be a nervy finish for City now. They will really be kicking themselves if they don't win this game as they have controlled it from the start.
GOAL! Free-kick to Palace right on the edge of the box after Gundogan fouls McArthur from behind. Milivojevic sends a powerful free-kick through the wall and it finds its way past Ederson. Game on. Palace 1-2 City.
Palace bring on Meyer for Townsend, who did not come close to repeating his heroics against City in the reverse fixture.
City make their second change of the game as Pep looks towards the Spurs Champions League tie during the week, Aguero makes way for Jesus.
City want to put a lid on it and a few signs that this game is going up a bit more, but City have defended well so far, with Walker particularly impressive.
SHOT! Milivojevic swings the ball in for Benteke, who meets it on the volley from around 15 yards out but doesn't make a clean contact and Ederson saves comfortably.
Substitution for the visitors following the goal, David Silva is replaced by Bernardo Silva.
GOAL! That's two for Sterling and two for City. They finally break through the Eagles defense for the second time. Sane sends the ball across the box and Sterling with a great first time finish, passes it beyond Guaita.
Gundogan tries his luck from around 25 yards out but fires well over the bar. Pep Guardiola looks frustrated, no doubt eager to see his side score a second and make the result safer.
Manchester City have won their last eight Premier League games, keeping a clean sheet in six of the last seven.
Ten minutes gone in the second half and you just feel that if City score a second the floodgates will open a bit. Palace still sitting deep.
Selhurst Park is a bit flat at the moment, City continue with all the ball and the home crowd have seen the Eagles win just 4 times at home this season.
CLOSE! Good goalkeeping from Guaita. De Bruyne chips in a cross that almost deflects into the net off Kelly, but Guaita reacts quickly to save on the line.
No changes from either manager at the break as the hosts get us rolling. Crystal Palace 0-1 Manchester City.
CHANCE! City so close to a second. Gundogan has time to look up and chip over the top of the Palace defence. Three City players go for the ball in the box and it falls for De Bruyne, who fires at Guaita from close range.
Half time here at Selhurst Park with just Sterling's goal being the difference, the Englishman missed a sitter before opening the scoring for the visitors. Crystal Palace 0-1 Manchester City.
Just under five minutes to go in the half and you would think Hodgson wouldn't be too upset to go into the break just a goal down. Pep's side is still pushing..
Despite City having all of the ball and all of that ball in the Palace half, it remains just one and Palace are known to be good on the counter attack, the likes of Townsend and Zaha just need a glimpse on the break..
SAVE! Sane causes havoc for the Palace defense as he dances between men before firing a rifled shot at the near post, but Guaita gets a strong hand to it!
Milivojevic chips into the box for Benteke, who wins the header and knocks into the middle towards Kouyate. He is set to take a shot but Gundogan slides and clears the danger.
Not many shots from the visitors but Aguero gets a sight of goal and that's all he really needs to let fly, he gets the ball on the edge of the area and lets out a snapshot that flies just over Guaita's crossbar.
The Eagles have been stuck inside their on third for the majority of the game, the likes of Benteke and Zaha are playing on absolute scraps for the hosts.
The game has gotten a bit cagey following a lengthy injury break for both Sterling and Schlupp. Sterling seems fine to continue but Schlupp is forced off and Kouyate is his replacement.
This looks ominous for Palace at the moment, although City did also take the lead in the reverse fixture that they lost at the Etihad in December.
GOAL! Sterling makes up for his horrendous miss! A great tackle at the back from Kompany gets City going, De Bruyne puts Sterling through and smacks it into the roof of the net from close range.
MISS! City should lead! The hosts fail to clear and City have Palace on the backfoot, after a sweet one-two on the edge of the area Sane beats two men and squares it for Sterling who has an open goal but scuffs it wide.
It's been one-way traffic so far. City have had almost all of the ball in the opening stages, they have kept Palace pinned back inside their own half.
Palace with their first foray foward as Schlupp moves the ball down the right flank and tees up Milivojevic, but he can't keep his shot down.
Lots of early possession for City and nearly an early chance Silva is set up by Walker from the flank, the Spaniard has his back towards goal inside the area but can't turn under pressure.
The visitors get us rolling at Selhurst Park!
