Crystal Palace vs Manchester City 28th January 2017: FA Cup Preview and Predictions

Crystal Palace are making another run in the FA Cup and after last years FA Cup final appearance, the Selhurst Park faithful are back to prayers are they take on Manchester City this weekend in front of what should be a packed home crowd.

Pep and his Manchester City side a facing a rough patch and at the moment, it looks bad for the Spanish manager. That being said, they are still in the Champions League and the FA Cup may become their domestic target if things don’t change drastically for them in the Premier League. This weekend they will look to get an easy win over a Crystal Palace team that are struggling at the moment but it won’t be easy since the FA Cup seems to be a competition that the South London team specialize in.

Crystal Palace will want to win this game desperately as this seems to be the only gift that the Eagles could be able to give to their fans that turn up loyally all the time at Selhurst Park. That being said, it is simply going to be an uphill battle for them since they have lost their winning ways and getting it back will be tough especially against a team like Manchester City.

I think we can expect Manchester City to win since they are just the better side. That being said, we are not getting a great price on this bet and I think we might avoid it. The better bet is clearly to bet on the goals scored and since both teams have massive defensive problems, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals are the best wagers in this game.
