Crystal Palace take on Leader Manchester City in Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash at Selhurst Park (kick-off 12.00pm GMT).
Manchester City could be in for a shock on Sunday after Roy Hodgson vowed that Crystal Palace will play their natural game.
Pep Guardiola has grown accustomed to watching his players take on 11 men behind the ball as sides from Bournemouth to United have sought to stifle the Blues attack.
The defence could face a much busier time at Selhurst Park , however, if Hodgson’s words ring true.
“Any team that tries to go toe-to-toe with them and actually attacks them runs the risk of conceding goals,” he said .
“They are doing it to everybody but the players we have are best suited to playing the way we are trying to play. So I’m afraid we won’t have much option other than to try and do against them what we tried to do against Arsenal.
“That might make it an entertaining game for the neutral but it could make it a tough game for us. They have such quality in the middle and final thirds of the field and they work so hard to win the ball back.
“All I can hope is that we can at least give it as good a go as we did against Arsenal.”
