Betting Tips for the game

Manchester City were able to enjoy a comfortable 3-1 success over Everton in the latest Premier League match. Guardiola’s team, though, had a difficult match against Leicester at the King Power Stadium as the two teams could only muster a 1-1 draw, but City did end up successful on penalties.

Crystal Palace were able to enjoy a narrow 1-0 win over Leicester City last weekend. Due to the absence of Wilfried Zaha, Palace offered little going forward but they came up with the crucial goal just before half-time.

The recent match between these two clubs happens to be a goalless draw at Selhurst Park. The Eagles, though, suffered a second consecutive 5-0 defeat at the Etihad Stadium in their latest trip to this ground last season. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Manchester City.

Match odds

Despite a price of 21.00 for this match, Crystal Palace are not a good option to expect a victory. Manchester City have destroyed most of the opposition who have come their way and the team has been able to score more than 45 goals already. At this rate, City stand to break their own records set last season. Palace may not have a very bad defence, but most teams tend to struggle against City’s movement and disorientating levels of possession. Our preview would pick a win for City.

First Goalscorer odds

Raheem Sterling has been able to get four goals in his nine games against Palace. Even though it may seem like a mediocre record, the 24-year-old is in a great position to open the scoring in this match. Sterling is the top scorer at Manchester City – ahead of Sergio Aguero – after grabbing three goals in his last four Premier League games. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Sterling.
