Crystal Palace will be able to relax after opening up an 11-point advantage over the bottom three with five matches left. Palace can almost be sure of a place in the Premier League next season. Guardiola cannot afford to rest his players as they have to focus on four big matches in forthcoming weeks. The loss against Spurs in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final changes the dynamic of City’s run-in.

Correct Score odds
Manchester City have been slightly detuned when it comes to getting goals on the road. City have averaged two goals in the last six away games, while Palace do have a strong scoring threat up front. After serious worries about the offensive threat in the first half of the campaign, the recovery from Palace has been quite decent. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for City.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The games between Manchester City and Crystal Palace have been amongst the most entertaining with a remarkable 17-4 aggregate score over the last six meetings. Surprisingly, the only goalless draw between these two teams in recent times has come about at Selhurst Park. Even with a crucial second leg game against Spurs coming up for City, our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero had one of his poorest games in recent times in the loss against Spurs. Gabriel Jesus is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up with Aguero being saved for the second leg against Spurs. Jesus came up with the only goal in the FA Cup win over Brighton. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Gabriel Jesus.
