Crystal Palace vs Manchester City 19th November 2016: EPL Preview and Predictions

The international break is finally over and Manchester City will be back in action as they take on Crystal Palace which will be a stunning contest as a pumped up Selhurst Park will be there to cheer the Eagles to what could very possibly be a huge upset for the home side.


Crystal Palace has been in pretty poor form lately but this side has a ton of talent so it is hard to not see this side eventually picking up their form again. This team has a great midfield with the likes of Yohan Cabaye but it will be important that they don’t let the likes of Fernandinho dictate the game too much because that could cause the entire game to get out of hand from the Eagles very quickly. If this side can get some crosses into Benteke and along with that defend well, an upset is very possible.


On the other hand, Manchester City will look to get an easy three points and charge on as they look to contend for the title come the end of the season. A win here as a result is needed so they can stay on pace and if they play well there is no reason why this should not happen. This team has pace, control and skill and on their day there is no team that can beat them as they showed in their win against Barcelona.


Will all that in mind, I think we are not getting a good enough price to bet on Manchester City. The best bet in this game is to look at the goal line and going for the over 2.5 goals is the best option as Manchester CIty might reach this goal themselves. Furthermore Palace have goalscoring in them as well so this seems like a great bet.
