Crystal Palace vs Manchester City / Premier League – The match is almost irrelevant for the home team as it is positioned around mid-table and can hardly change that by the end of season. On the other hand it is extremely important for Manchester City, which races for the title. They lost in the Champions League and that was the first defeat after a very long time, while Crystal Palace plays variably lately. In the first part of season Crystal Palace had sensationally won Manchester City by 3-2.
Crystal Palace vs Manchester City begins 14.04.2019 at 15:05 CET
Crystal Palace plays in rhythm win-lose for seven rounds now, while one defeat sneaked in and it meant elimination from the FA Cup. Watford defeated them in the quarter-finals and they should be sorry for missed chance to make a good result. It is almost irrelevant do the play at home or away; for example they lost to Brighton at home and won Newcastle 1-0 away in the previous round. Stopper Tomkins got injured in that match and will probably not play now. Dann will replace him and perhaps that will be the only change in the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Crystal Palace: Guaita – Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Dann, van Aanholt – McArthur, A. Townsend, Milivojevic, Schlupp – Zaha, Batshuayi
Manchester City’s great series of wins is over. It ended in the 1st quarter-final leg of the Champions League when they faced Tottenham away. Defeat of 1-0 indicates that the City could have great problems in the rematch. Everything could have been different if Aguero scored from penalty at the beginning of match but he didn’t and the City will have to play at top level in the rematch. Before the 2nd leg they have to be maximally careful in the league as they have already burned their fingers on Crystal Palace. Manager Guardiola will refresh the team with several new players but it doesn’t mean that the City will be less lethal.
Probable lineups Manchester City: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy – Fernandinho, Gundogan, de Bruyne – Sterling, G. Jesus, L. Sane
Crystal Palace vs Manchester City PICK
The home team is under no pressure as it doesn’t need points but it would definitely like to win again the reigning champions. Right because of that home defeat Manchester City will have an additional motive and we expect that the guests play with full throttle and win with ease.
Pick: Asian handicap -1.5 Manchester City
Odds: 1.98 at bet365 (down to 1.88 can be played)
