In the English Premier League, Manchester City are set to travel to South London where they will face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace have had a strong start to the season as they are 6th on the ladder with 14 points from their 8 games. In their last game, the Eagles defeated West Ham United 2-1 away from home. It was a cagey affair but Crystal Palace managed to show outstanding determination to win having conceded the opening goal. Jordan Ayew continued his supreme form for Crystal Palace as he scored the winning goal in the 87th minute. Crystal Palace look strong and they will be hoping to get a result against Manchester City, especially at home.
Looking at Manchester City, the Sky Blues must return to winning ways as Liverpool have opened up a big gap at the top of the Premier League table. In their last match, Manchester City were defeated 2-0 at home by Wolves. The defense has been a big issue for Manchester City and with the likes of Laporte and Stone still injured, it is hard to see an improvement. The Manchester City philosophy has been to outscore their opposition and that is a genuine possibility considering the attacking talent in the side. The likes of Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, and Sergio Aguero all look in outstanding touch and they are likely to cause the Crystal Palace defense lots of problems. This could be a tricky match for Manchester City but they will be hoping to comfortably get the 3 points.
Selhurst Park has always been a tough place to visit but I see Manchester City being good enough to win this match. Manchester City simply have too much attacking strength and I see them being able to dominate the Crystal Palace defense. This should be a high scoring game that Manchester City wins.
