Crystal Palace Form
Crystal Palace have been in excellent form of late, and find themselves in sixth place in the league table.
Many fans had predicted that the Eagles would struggle this season, but Roy Hodgson has even briefly spoken about his side possibly challenging for a place in the top six this season.
Their most notable win to date came against Manchester United at Old Trafford, which was their first win at the Theatre of Dreams in the Premier League era.
They are unbeaten in their last three, and punters must be aware of how good this Eagles side really are before considering City as a banker.
They have won their last two. The first of these was a commanding 2-0 win at home against Norwich City, before they followed that up with another impressive display at the London Stadium against West Ham.
Palace battled back from 1-0 down to claim all three points in that win, with the eventual winning goal scored by Jordan Ayew.
If they defend well, they will have a great chance.
Manchester City Form
It would have been a long international break for Pep Guardiola as he ponders over their recent home defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Nothing went right on that day for City, and they now trail Liverpool by eight points heading into what could be a crucial weekend for the title even at this early stage.
Defensive injuries have certainly derailed any early-season momentum City had, and their susceptibility was on full display against Wolves.
The partnership between Nicolas Otamendi and Fernandinho isn’t good enough for the Premier League champions, and they will be hoping that they can get back John Stones very soon.
Wolves also defended very well and managed to keep a rare clean sheet at the Etihad, and Palace will take confidence by how City can be beaten.
Crystal Palace vs Man City Head-to-Head
