Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Preview

Crystal Palace vs Manchester City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Selhurst Park

Date: 31st December 2017

Kick-off time – 12:00 GMT

After starting the season in the poorest form of any team in the division, Crystal Palace have recovered well to go on a run of games undefeated.

However, their unbeaten run ended in their last league game as they lost 3-2 to Arsenal.

Their attacking play in that game will give them confidence ahead of the new year.

Prior to losing to Arsenal they were on a run of 8 games without a defeat – a run that saw them move from the foot of the league table to 16th position.

Although they are on form, it is hard to see them get a result against this Manchester City team that is marching towards the league title.

The Cityzens currently have a 15 points cushion on the top of the league table and remain unbeaten in England this season.

The only time they have failed to win all three points this season was against West Ham back in August.

In their 20 league games this season, they have netted 61 times with the next closest coming 15 goals shy.

Their away win over Newcastle was the 10th win in as many away games for them this season.

City’s defence have been breached recently as they have conceded 4 goals in their last 7 games although they still remain the best defensive side in the league.
