Crystal Palace v Manchester City | 12.09
Somehow i feel this weekend showcases some interesting matches with great expectations, In this case of Crystal Palace v Manchester City, we talk about a Crystal Palace who has won 4 out of their last 5 games including an important win over Chelsea at Stamford bridge and our present league favourites Man City with 5 wins in last 5 games leading the table with 12 points, 10 goals for, No goal against.
Don’t go far, this is the #1 v #2 match of the Premier league at the moment and calls for all the attention. The questions for this match are numerous, Is it time for Man City to suffer their first set back? Can Crystal pull this off and make a statement? Will Man City cruise past this and display Invisibility? What will happen in this match?
Manchester City are battling some injuries but their squad depth can accommodate it, I guess the best of the Injury is Silva who is out till Sep 19 giving way to a debut for 55M de bruyne. Man City will aim to want to retain their lead over a dangerous Crystal Palace and i believe pellegrinni’s boyz are aware of the task.
Crystal Palace won the last game against Man City and with their present moral, trust me they must be feeling invisible even with the task at hand. Alan Pardew has been one Manager who has “waohed” me so far and i expect good tactics from him.
Bookmakers of course favour Man City to take this but we here will go for a Double Chance on Man City (X2), Crystal Palace could take a draw from this. One thing we can be sure though is that both teams will score so BTTS=YES.
