On the upcoming Sunday within the 21st round of the EPL, Crystal Palace will host Manchester City at their home ground. The future guests are considered to be clear and deserved favorites of the encounter in this couple, Guardiola’s team continues its victorious procession and it is very unlikely, that the Glaziers will be able to obstruct the division leader in reaching their goal.
Last mid-week Crystal Palace played at Selhurst Park against Arsenal, Roy Hodgson’s team acted well but eventually lost to Wenger’s side 2:3. The Eagles are situated on the 16th position in the EPL tournament table, having 18 points in their asset, which is only one point more than Bournemouth. Prior to the defeat against the Gunners, Crystal Palace had draws with Bournemouth and Swansea and were stronger than Leicester and Watford.
Manchester City also played a match in mid-week and the Mancunians opponents were Newcastle United, which performed very defensively, but couldn’t keep their goal shut anyway. Within the last five games Man City had only victories: over Swansea, Tottenham, Leicester in the League Cup in a penalty shootout, Bournemouth and Newcastle. Guardiola’s team is on the first position in the table having 15-point handicap over the closest pursuers – Manchester United.
Beside the fact, that Manchester City attack great, the team also has one of the best defense lines in Europe. There’s no guarantee that Crystal Palace will be able to score at least one goal to Man City’s net. There is no doubt, that the Mancunians, in their turn, will be to score a couple of goals to the Londoners.
Prediction for the match: Manchester City to win + under 4.5 goals in the match
