Crystal Palace – Manchester City, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR CRYSTAL PALACE - MAN CITY
Crystal Palace started off in a positive way this season. Hodgson can be congratulated for taking the team in bad condition and making it an important factor in the Premier League, with the Eagles being the only team to get 3 points or 1 as a guest against the top 6 teams last year. Zaha is not having his best days, but it should be mentioned here that the problem is rather mental because the Ivorian hardly thinks so much about Palace anymore.
Manchester City are chasing a must success after another failure. In the Guardiola era, City had no match without a goal scored at home. That didn’t seem possible before, but Wolves kept the pressure on. The difference between Liverpool and City is 8 points and Guardiola at such times accurately shows that he is one of the strongest coaches in the world. The problems come from that City do not always use all their game models so well as they have in the last 2 seasons and the teams gain more confidence at such times.
Expert view : In the event that City fails again, and especially if Liverpool take the derby tomorrow and the next straight matches, then the citizens will panic because the difference would be huge, even at this stage bearing in mind that Liverpool make almost no mistakes – only one loss for the entire past season. So here we are betting on the guests who will start with the ferocious attacks from the beginning and we think that City will score in both halves at 1.74.
City have scored in the both halves in 5 of their last 6 games in PL
City have scored in both halves in 8 of their last 9 games against Palace
