Two consecutive defeats did not greatly affect the London club's standings. Glaziers have already secured a decent advantage over the relegation zone. Now the team has settled on the 13th line. At the moment, Crystal Palace has 38 points and at the same time, Hodgson's wards have played less than the group of outsiders.
We must say that in the last home games Londoners lost less often. Crystal Palace have lost only twice in six previous meetings at Selhurst Park. In addition to the “retirees”, the team lost to Burnley (0:3). During this period they managed to beat Wolverhampton and West Brom with the same score 1:0 and ended in a draw with Fulham (0:0) and Manchester United (0:0). In general, in 16 home games of the current championship, the glaziers have achieved only five victories, drew five more times and lost in six matches.
It should be noted that Crystal Palace has one of the worst defensive lines in this championship. So far, the London club have conceded 54 goals. Only Southampton, West Bromwich and Sheffield United have worse performance.
The owners' infirmary is full. Defenders Gary Cahill, James Tomkins and Mamadou Sako, as well as midfielders James MacArthur and Nathan Ferguson, striker Connor Wickham, will not play due to injuries.
In the national championship "Manchester City" continues to lead confidently and in the next rounds can secure the championship title ahead of schedule. After 33 matches in the current championship, Josep Guardiola's men have scored 77 points and are ten points ahead of their closest rival Manchester United.
Manchester City have won their last ten away matches in a row in the Premier League. In eight of them, the “townspeople” have scored more than one goal and conceded only four times during this period. Unsurprisingly, at the moment, the Mancunians are the best away team in the championship. In 16 away matches, they achieved 12 victories, lost once and ended three meetings in a draw.
Defender John Stones will miss the match due to suspension.
Our prediction is the victory of Crystal Palace with a handicap (+1.5) for 1.93 in BC Betway.
Given the motivation of opponents and the current state, the meeting is unlikely to be effective.
