Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Match Preview
Crystal Palace enjoyed a stunning victory at the Etihad Stadium just before Christmas but with the Premier League title on the line, Manchester City are expected to gain revenge.
A Goal of the Season contender from Andros Townsend was the highlight of Palace’s 3-2 triumph in December, and the Eagles also held City to a goalless draw at home on New Year’s Eve 2017.
Another reason for Roy Hodgson’s side to be optimistic is that City suffered only their second defeat of 2019 on Tuesday, 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final away to Tottenham, but usually the English champions bounce back very quickly.
Admittedly, after City lost to Palace earlier this term, they were also beaten in their next game away to Leicester. However, two defeats and one draw – when they won the Carabao Cup in a penalty shootout – in 24 matches since then tells its own story.
City need to win here and then hope Chelsea take points off Liverpool at Anfield immediately afterwards if they are to finish the weekend on top of the table, still with a game in hand – which is the Manchester derby at Old Trafford.
The Quintuple, as manager Pep Guardiola referred to it this week, is still very much on and Palace are not expected to dent the possibility of it this time.
