However, despite the reports linking him with a move away from Selhurst Park, Palace boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed the Ivory Coast worldwide will not be leaving the club. "The squad is not enormous".
It's tough to find value here, Crystal Palace have a small squad and it's tough to see them causing too many problems for Manchester City but Palace have looked capable of scoring against anyone with their strong wing play.
"We've also got a lot of players who are feeling an element of fatigue", he continued. While City arrive at Selhurst Park on an 18-match winning run.
Of course we are so happy to break records, because we keep having one more, one more, but when we prepare for games we don't speak about records, we just speak about what we have to win.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have all produced "dominating" Premier League sides comparable to the current Manchester City team, says Roy Hodgson.
Mamadou Sakho, Damien Delaney and Joel Ward are still injured while Loftus Cheek and Yohan Cabaye could be back in action after suffering minute injury scare in their last week clash against Arsenal. He could also miss Sunday's game, but could be back soon after.
Elsewhere, Manchester United will need to bounce back at home to Southampton following a damaging 2-2 draw with Burnley last time out that has left them 15 points off their bitter rivals. Crystal Palace isn't a huge roadblock in their path, but it's the next game on the schedule.
Zaha, who registered his best-ever campaign in the Premier League with seven goals and nine assists in 35 appearances, played for Palace in Thursday's 3-2 defeat against the Gunners, and created a goal for Andros Townsend. Already with 13 league goals this season, the 23-year-old is the clubs top scorer and has scored four goals in his last three matches.
Victory for City in this match will see them equal the record winning run in one of Europe's top five leagues - Bayern Munich, managed by Pep Guardiola, won 19 consecutively in the 2013/14 season.
City have plundered a record 61 goals in just 20 outings this season and expect to continue the same when they visit Crystal Palace.
