Crystal Palace and Manchester City will play the ninth match of the Premier League season on Saturday, 19th October at Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace and Manchester City meet this weekend at Selhurst Park for the ninth match of the Premier League season. Crystal Palace have had a solid start to the season. They are sixth in the league with 14 points having won 4 games, drawn 2 and lost 2. Manchester City have not had the start they were hoping for. They are now second in the league with 16 points after winning 5 games, drawing 1 and losing 2.
Crystal Palace have won their last two games, against West Ham and Norwich, and before that, they drew with Wolves. However, they lost 4 – 0 to Tottenham Hotspur in mid-September. Manchester City suffered a surprise 0 – 2 defeat to Wolverhampton in their last game and their other loss was to Norwich City. However, they have recently defeated Dinamo Zagreb, Everton, Preston North End and Watford.
The teams last played in April this year and Manchester City won 1 – 3. However, Crystal Palace did defeat City 2 – 3 in December last year. Crystal Palace have the home advantage here and after two slip-ups from Manchester City, they will be motivated to take advantage. However, it is still going to be a big challenge.
