Manchester City vs Crystal Palace EPL betting preview

Manchester City will welcome Crystal Palace to the Etihad this weekend as the champions play catch up with runaway leaders Liverpool in the English Premier League.

The Citizens have made headway since their shock 3-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Boxing Day, winning five games on the trot with great conviction across all competitions. They clobbered Aston Villa 6-1 at Villa Park in their most outing, only a few days after beating Manchester United 3-1 in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-finals.


The thumping victory ensured that the champions leapfrogged Leicester City – who dropped all three points against Southampton on Saturday – into second on the Premier League table, 14 points behind frontrunners Liverpool.

Crystal Palace forced a 1-1 draw with Arsenal last weekend. A run of three consecutive stalemates in the EPL has the Eagles ninth on the table on 29 points, a distant 18 points behind their opponents for this weekend.

Finding the back of the net has become increasingly harder for Roy Hodgson’s side, with victories coming few and far between over the last month. That is a worry when faced with the highest scoring side in the league.

Manchester City team news

Pep Guardiola’s options have been boosted by the return of regular first-team players such as David Silva and Sergio Aguero over the last few weeks.

Although City have a near-clean bill of health ahead of Palace’s visit, they are still without long-term absentees Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane.

Laporte is still recovering from knee surgery, while Sane hasn’t featured for City since suffering a knee ligament injury last August in the Community Shield.

Crystal Palace team news

Roy Hodgson has a few key injury concerns ahead of the trip to Manchester.

Wide man Jeffrey Schlupp is out with a hip injury, while defender Mamadou Sakho remains sidelined due to a thigh issue.

Midfielder Max Meyer is also a major doubt after suffering a knock on his ankle during last weekend’s draw with Arsenal.

Sergio Aguero goalscorer odds and specials

• Aguero first goalscorer – +187 at Bovada
• Aguero to score/Man City to win – +187 at Bovada

Sergio Aguero is back to his blistering best having spent a little over a month on the sidelines due to a thigh injury.

The veteran striker has scored 18 goals in all competitions for Manchester City, leaving him only two goals short of Raheem Sterling.

With five goals in his last three appearances, including a hat-trick against Aston Villa last weekend, the 31-year-old Argentine looks poised to continue his purple patch against Palace.

Man City vs Crystal Palace EPL betting predictions

Manchester City will be chasing their sixth successive win in all competitions when they face Palace this weekend.

Although the Eagles are still safe in the top half of the table, their form is wanting ahead of a tough run that includes fixtures against Southampton and Sheffield United.

With only one win in their last eight games, Palace will struggle to keep out the in-form Citizens.

Prediction: Manchester City to win both halves – -117.65 at Bovada
