Manchester City are back at home this weekend and they will be facing an out of form Crystal Palace team who will want to get their season back on track. This is an insanely important game for both teams and I am expecting a lot of entertainment here since a win will be on the minds of the two teams.
Manchester City are a team who should be winning more games than they are. This team had a good game midweek but failed to get the 3 points. This is something that is happening way too often to the Sky Blues and as a result winning this match is important. That being said I am not so sure that they will. This team is very reliant on 4 players and I think that if they perform they are incredible but lately they haven’t been. They are against a good team this weekend and although they are better, they will have their work cut out.
Crystal Palace on the other hand are watching their season fall away as things start to go wrong. This team is so talented but injuries are costing them at the moment. This side is missing some men but a lot of players are back for this game which means they will be stronger than in their previous matches. I think this team can get a draw.
Overall I think that for this game betting the outright result is the way to go. We are getting around 5.00 for this bet which is so much value so it is definitely where my money will be. Also I think that the score line will be something like 1-1 or 2-2 so both teams to score is probably also a good value bet. This is because I think Palace are talented up front and without Kompany the defence of Manchester City is not great. On the other side of the field I am sure that City will also score so this seems like a good bet.
