Match: Crystal Palace vs Manchester City
League: English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 19 October 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).
The Liverpool that faces Manchester United in Old Trafford is a great opportunity for the defending champions to cut part of the Reds lead. But a question arises about whether they can resist the pressure exerted by Palace in Selhurst Park. However, while Sterling Raheem will find his mark against Bulgaria, Pep Guardiola should find a way to show all three points on the board.
- Citizens won 15 of 17 previous clashes.
- The last time these two players met, the incumbents recorded a 1 to 3 victory.
- Since 2001, the Eagles have won only twice.
- Seven of the previous nine meetings on this site resulted in victories abroad.
- In five of the last eight meetings at this stadium, the hosts failed to find the bottom of the network.
City suffered a surprising defeat on the last day, against the giant killers of the league, the wolves. Despite the comfort of Etihad, two Adama Traore goals hit the coffins of Blue Manchester fans. Kevin DeBruyne’s absence was really felt twice when Guardiola’s men lost in the field this season.
They will certainly try to make a majestic return and declare that they will never throw the hat in the middle of the title race against Liverpool. There are already eight points behind Jurgen Klopp’s men, and honestly there is no room for mistakes.
It is clear that the Eagles are a solid group, but we will have to take into account the superiority that the successful national winners of last season have shown in their recent history against this opponent. In fact, citizens have won 15 of the last 17 fights against Palace and seven of the previous nine in this place.

In addition, they have lost only twice since 2001 against Roy Hodgson’s men and have maintained five white sheets in this stadium after their previous eight visits here.
Meanwhile, their counterparts are struggling to score goals despite an impressive defense demonstration. So far, they only have eight goals, while David Silva and his boys have done it more than three times.
At first glance, count on Pep Guardiola to not give anything to Klopp in the search for the PL crown.
