Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Prediction & Betting tips
Manchester City unexpectedly lost Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday. Pep Guardiola’s team will play another match in London this weekend, as the Crystal Palace duel awaits at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
For Crystal Palace, the season is over. The Eagles won 0-1 against Newcastle United last weekend and know that they can no longer relegate. Coach Roy Hodgson has thus met the Crystal Palace goal and The Eagles are nowhere playing for the next five games. A place in the left-hand row is not feasible for Crystal Palace, but that was also a bit too much for the London club. In any case, Hodgson has again achieved maximum performance with Crystal Palace and the 71-year-old manager can also send you a message in that regard.
With matches against Manchester City, Arsenal and Everton, Crystal Palace will face three tough opponents in the coming weeks. Nevertheless, they already showed at Crystal Palace earlier this season that they can make it difficult for the top clubs in the Premier League, the Eagles won 2-3 against Manchester City in December. Last season The Eagles also managed to keep Manchester City on a scoreless draw at Selhurst Park and now that Crystal Palace can play freely, it is certainly not inconceivable that The Eagles will again be able to stunt the national champion.
At Manchester City they are not really waiting for the Crystal Palace game. The Citizens have not won from Crystal Palace in the last two times and are as if they are going to lose points at Selhurst Park. Normally Manchester City should be able to beat Crystal Palace, but The Citizens had to give in at Etihad Stadium. However, Manchester City cannot afford a point loss, as Liverpool is two points behind. Incidentally, Manchester City has played a match less than Liverpool and moreover The Reds play against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon. At Manchester City, they can increase the pressure to a maximum by grabbing three points at Selhurst Park earlier in the day.
Earlier this week, The Citizens also played a game in London. While visiting Tottenham Hotspur, Pep Guardiola’s team was somewhat surprised: 1-0. Tottenham will visit Manchester City on Wednesday evening and The Citizens will have a good time. By the way, Guardiola chose to position Kevin de Bruyne and Leroy Sané on the bench against Tottenham. Something that was quite striking. The Belgian and the German are expected to be back in Manchester City on Sunday afternoon, although it might have been more logical if Guardiola would give the two star players a rest against Crystal Palace.
