Crystal Palace News and Form
After a rocky start to the new season, Crystal Palace have found a bit of form. They have won four of their last six games now (D1 L1) and they have remained undefeated at Selhurst Park where they are W2 D2. Will they be able to give Manchester City a good run for their money? It has been back to back league wins for Palace, scoring successes over Norwich and West Ham.
It is worth noting that they haven’t played host to any side who are currently in the top half of the table this season. It has been only the one goal conceded at home by Palace this season, who have scored in all but two of their league fixtures in this campaign. No game at Selhurst Park this season in the EPL has gone over 2.5 goals. Palace are going to need to have their defence on point for this one.
The Eagles have been level at the halftime break in three of their four home games. That leads to another statistic, where they have scored 75% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures. They get Luka Milivojevic back from his ban for this game. Looking back to last season, it is a six-match unbeaten streak of form that the Eagles on in the Premier League. Can Palace keep City at bay?

Manchester City News and Form
The Citizens were rocked in their last league game, suffering a 2-0 home defeat against Wolves. That was a huge upset and it is their second loss in their last four league outings, the other happening at Norwich. Away from home, the Etihad this season Manchester City have taken a W3 L1 record and their last road game ended in a 3-1 success for them at Everton.
It’s the early season, but Man City have a lot of ground to make up on Liverpool, eight points, which is not going to be easy to close. They are the top-scoring side in the division though with 27 goals returned from their eight games. There have been over 2.5 goals in each of Manchester City’s last five games played out on the road in the top flight.
Part of the reason for that is that City have netted at least 2 goals in all but one of their last nine on the road. Manchester City do have some great form on the road, having won 10 of their last 11 away games, the one exception being that shock reverse at Norwich. Kevin de Bruyne and John Stones have been in training for them this week, but remain doubts to get in the starting eleven.
