In the English Premier League, Manchester City will host Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester. 

Manchester City have almost given up on the Premier League title but the team has still been producing good results. In their previous outing, Manchester City defeated Aston Villa 6-1 away from home. It was a dominant performance by Manchester City as they controlled 71% of the possession and had 22 shots. Sergio Aguero was in outstanding touch as the Argentine striker scored 3 times for the Sky Blues. Riyad Mahrez was also very impressive as the winger scored twice while Gabriel Jesus scored once. The defense has been the biggest issue for Manchester City but while the strikers are firing, the team will feel optimistic. 

On the other side of the coin, Crystal Palace have been in decent touch with the team managing a 1-1 draw against Arsenal in their previous match. Crystal Palace had 42% of the ball but managed to control the match well enough to secure the point. Jordan Ayew continued his outstanding form as he scored again for Crystal Palace. It has been a solid season for Crystal Palace as the team are currently 9th on the ladder with 29 points from their 22 games. This is expected to be a tough match for Crystal Palace since they are playing against an elite team in Manchester City. 

Manchester City and Crystal Palace played each other earlier in the season at Selhurst Park. Manchester City won the match 2-0. Gabriel Jesus and David Silva were the goal scorers for Manchester City. 

Looking at this fixture, I see Manchester City winning with some ease. The Sky Blues are significantly stronger and I see them winning easily at home. The over 3.5 goals wager seems like the best wager since both teams are very strong going forward. 

Pick:
Manchester City
