City enter revitalised Palace today at the Etihad.
"We are confident but not arrogant. We believe that we can be a match for any team if we apply ourselves in the right way and fortunately we have been doing that at home.
"Make no mistake, Palace will be a very strong test. They're coming off the back of a great win at Aston Villa. Their form has picked up since Tony Pulis has come in. He's an experienced and organised manager so we know we're going to be in for a game," Lescott told City's website.
