16/12 Accurate Football predictions: Manchester City vs Crystal Palace

Betting Tips

After defeating Crystal Palace in the Champions League midweek in Belgrade, Manchester City will play again in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon when they visit the Etihad Stadium. The Eagles are mired in 15th position and are starting to look over their shoulders after a dismal run of play, while the Citizens are fourth in the premier division rankings.

Manchester City vs Crystal Palace

With a victory at home against 15th in the Premier League, Manchester City can advance to second place. City trails leaders Liverpool by four points going into the weekend, but only by three from second-place Arsenal. The Citizens appear to be emerging from their recent slump despite their previous struggles with form. The Blues overcame a 2-1 deficit to win against Luton Town on Sunday.

That put a stop to Pep Guardiola’s team’s losing streak of four league games. In the Champions League, a much-altered lineup triumphed 3-2 away at Red Star Belgrade midweek. City has won five of their seven Premier League games this season and drawn the other two, demonstrating their continued toughness as a home team.

A form guide for the last ten league games has Crystal Palace in 16th place with only eight points out of 30, despite the fact that they are still seven points above the relegation zone. They don’t need to panic just yet, but they enter this match having only earned one point from their last five league games. They have only won one of their last four league fixtures away from home, which is concerning. We predict Manchester City to win this (with or without the doubtful Haaland) and lead at halftime and full-time.

Verdict

Before their triumph at Kenilworth Road, Manchester City had experienced a bit of a tough patch, having gone an incredible four Premier League games without a win. Many factors have been blamed for their bad play, most notably the loss of talented midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and the absence of creative force Kevin De Bruyne, but it appears that defense is where most of their problems lie rather than in the middle of the field.

Normally so strong defensively, City has only managed to keep one clean sheet in their previous 10 Premier League games. During that period, they gave up goals to relative underdogs Young Boys and Red Star and conceded to lowly Wolves.

Even though they are typically so strong defensively, City have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their previous ten Premier League games. During that period, they have conceded goals to Luton and Wolves, as well as goals against relative underdogs Young Boys and Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

Crystal Palace could enjoy some happiness at the Etihad on Saturday, just like they did in their last two visits when they scored twice. The Citizens’ defense is far from dependable.
