Guardiola – Palace are a dangerous team
Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola admits his team need to be at their best when they face Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The Citizens are still looking to win the quadruple this season, with the EFL Cup already in the bag.
City will take on Watford in the FA Cup final in May, while they need to overcome a 1-0 deficit in the Champions League to get past Tottenham.
However, Guardiola is refusing to take Palace lightly as his team continue to battle Liverpool for the Premier League title and he believes they will pose a serious threat when the two teams meet at Selhurst Park.
He told reporters when asked if they would pose a threat: ‘That’s true, we knew it weeks ago.
‘Selhurst Park is always difficult, not just for the stadium itself and the quality of the players they have.
In all departments they are really well organised and they have quality players to do actions one against one, one against two, one against three.
‘There are six games to finish the Premier League.
We know what we are playing for and we are going to prepare well.’
