If they want to loan me Manchester City duo I'd be happy, says Crystal Palace boss

NEIL Warnock isn't too concerned about Manchester City's striker crisis ahead of Saturday's game at the Etihad Stadium and believes they still have enough quality to cope.

The likes of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic are all out – possibly for the rest of 2014 – meaning the club's only striker is 18-year-old Jose Angel Pozo.

Warnock, of course, is hoping City have an off-day on their home patch, while his own forward players need to start firing.

"If they want to loan me David Silva or Samir Nasri, I'd be quite happy to take them on board"," the boss joked to the Advertiser.

"We're worrying more about ourselves than them. We have to be on the top of our game to get anything out of it.

"We've been working hard on that this week. City are so bright with their movement, off the ball as well as on it.

"We have to hope they have one or two players below par, and we've also got to take chances when they come – that's the key to winning games.

"In every game we've had good chances to score goals and we haven't taken them. If you get one or two against City, you have to take them.

"City are on a good run and full of confidence, but so are we, we just need to score goals."

Warnock is also relishing a certain duel on the pitch in the north west, with a certain winger set for a good test.

"Zabaleta is probably the best full-back in the Premier League," he said. "It should be a good contest up against Yannick Bolasie."
