(Premier League) Manchester City Vs Crystal Palace : Match Preview And Predictions

The Citizens will face tough visitors Crystal Palace this weekend, who have gone two games without a win, just recently losing at home to Burnley and before then Tottenham Hotspur, will be hungry for a win.

Pep Guardiola side, Manchester City hope to make Champions League Qualification by the last game of the league and keeping just one point ahead of approaching Manchester United, will hope to take all three points available to cement their position in the top four.

Manchester City fell to a 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough in their last League game, with Jesus equalizer proving vital while Crystal Palace fell to Burnley at home but both teams have managed to accumulate 10 points each in their last seven games. 

Both teams have different tactics of getting results, Crystal Palace makes use of flanks, capitalizing on form of Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend which contributes 825 crosses and corners this season while Manchester City play the majority of their football in the centre of the pitch, dominating possession as the defenders and midfielders probe for holes in their opposition's guard.

Manchester City Pep Guardiola

"Our qualification depends in our home at the Etihad with the three games that we have.
"We have tough games. Everybody has tough games so it's game by game."

Crystal Palace Sam Allardyce

"It's nonsense (to say anyone is too good to be relegated).
"I was at Bolton when Leeds went down. They were an outstanding talented side at the time. The negativity had sunk into the team, no matter how good they were.
"Alan Smith, Mark Viduka, what players they were and they still got relegated. 'Too good' is not a term I like to use.
"What we have to do now is try to finish it off as quickly as we can."
