The Premier League is back, and the leaders Manchester City have a big opportunity to get another big win and stay on top of the table when they welcome bottom of the league Crystal Palace to the Etihad.

If Roy Hodgson wanted an easy run of games to end Crystal Palace's dire run, he arguably faces the toughest possible starting with a trip to Manchester City.

The Eagles become the first team in English top-flight history - dating back to 1888 - to start a season with no points and no goals after five games thanks to a 1-0 loss to Southampton on Hodgson's return.

Now it's City, who have scored 17 goals and conceded just one over their previous four games, before visiting Manchester United and then welcoming Chelsea to Selhurst Park as the Eagles look to end their losing.

Will the return of Mamadou Sakho in midweek be the boost Palace need, or is this record-breaking run of form showing no immediate signs of ending?
