Tip Reasoning

  • Manchester City have won four of their last five Premier League home games and haven’t conceded a single goal in the process.
  • Crystal Palace have already lost 3-0 away to Liverpool and Chelsea this season.
  • All three of the Eagles’ losses this season have been to nil and away from home.

City look to bounce back after midweek loss

Manchester City were knocked out of the Carabao Cup for the first time since 2016 in midweek but Pep Guardiola’s stars have more than enough to bounce back with a win at the Etihad on Saturday.

Their 4-1 thrashing of Brighton last weekend made it eight games without defeat in the Premier League and they have won five of their six competitive home games this season. Crystal Palace may be improving under Patrick Vieira but they have a long way to go before they can match Saturday’s hosts.

Improving Palace still struggle on the road

The Eagles played out their fourth consecutive Premier League draw against Newcastle last weekend and the early signs suggest that the gamble on Vieira will pay off, but they have already been exposed by the top teams in the Premier League and there is little to suggest they can pull off an upset at the Etihad.

All three of Palace’s defeats this season have come away from home and they have failed to score in each of those, which includes two 3-0 losses to Chelsea and Liverpool.

Comfortable win for home side on the cards

Manchester City are yet to concede a league goal on home soil this season and have scored 12 goals across these four matches. Their only failure in this period is a goalless draw against Southampton but on Saturday they face a visiting side that have conceded 11 times in five competitive away games.

Backing Manchester City to win to nil is my preference given Crystal Palace’s previous trips to the top teams, and I’m also opting for a third 3-0 defeat of the season away from home as my correct score prediction.

Manchester City predicted lineup: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, Silva, de Bruyne; Jesus, Foden, Grealish

Crystal Palace predicted lineup: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Milivojevic, Gallagher, McArthur; Olise, Zaha, Benteke

  • Manchester City have won six of their last eight Premier League matches
  • Crystal Palace’s last four Premier League away games have all produced over 2.5 goals
