Manchester City v Crystal Palace Premier League Preview, 22nd December 3.00pm

Man City bounced back immediately last weekend after their loss against Chelsea. They bagged three points against Everton and look as if they have a good chance of getting another three-points this weekend. Crystal Palace are stuck in the bottom six but did give themselves a boost last weekend with a win. Their recent form at the Etihad has been horrendous though.

Manchester City News and Form

The Citizens collected a 3 -1 home success over Everton at the Etihad last weekend. That moved them on to a great W7 L1 record in their last eight league fixtures. That victory also saw them extend their perfect home league form for the season in the EPL with them now having taken nine wins from nine. Manchester City have produced 33 goals in their nine home games. It has been phenomenal stuff at times. Just six goals they have conceded on home soil too this season. It equates to a clean sheet in 33% of their home fixtures so far this term. 67% of this season’s league games at the Etihad have gone over 3.5 goals not too surprisingly.

Manchester City have scored in both halves of every home game this season. They have been W7 D2 at half time in their home games. They have a trending scoreline as each of their last three home wins have been by a 3-1 scoreline. They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last four at home. They have netted at least two goals in every single home game so far. City have the best home record in the top flight and the best defensive record this season. Only Liverpool have conceded fewer league goals than they have this season.

Manchester City v Crystal Palace Head to Head

City have won their last two home games against Palace 5-0
The Citizens are on a nine-match winning streak at home against the Eagles
Palace have scored at least three goals in each of their last four visits to the Etihad
Both teams have scored in three of the last eleven meetings

Crystal Palace News and Form

The Eagles needed a good three points under their belt and they got them last weekend with a 1-0 home win over Leicester. They head out on the road this weekend though where their form is W2 D1 L6 this season. But they have little away form going for themselves. They have lost their last two road games, conceding three goals in each (against Brighton and West Ham). They have collected only the one point from their last six games on the road in the Premier League. On their travels, they have scored nine goals and have conceded fifteen.

33% of their away games have gone above 3.5 goals and 67% of the away goals that they have conceded this season have been in the second half of games. The only two sides to have produced fewer league goals than Palace this season are Newcastle and Huddersfield. The Eagles have scored in three of their last four away games and they have taken a clean sheet in 33% of their road games this season. Crystal Palace have conceded exactly three goals in each of their last three away defeats. Their defence could, once again, come under a tremendous deal of pressure in this one.

Manchester City v Crystal Palace Tips & Odds

Who will win – Manchester City v Crystal Palace Predictions

It is hard to see past a comfortable home win for Manchester City. Palace aren’t likely to come up with the goals to challenge them. Therefore a Manchester City to win to nil option does look pretty good value for this game.
