Crystal Palace vs Manchester City
English Premier League
Date: 11 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).
Crystal Palace and Manchester City will close the happenings of an exciting Saturday program in the Premier League with their 27th round clash at Selhurst Park.
The Citizens will continue the pursuit for Liverpool who are five points adrift at the top of the league standings, while the Glaziers will be hoping for a miraculous victory as heavy underdogs on the home patch.
Crystal Palace are winless in ten consecutive games across competitions. They are one of the weakest attacking teams in the competition despite possessing high-profile players such as Wilfried Zaha or Michael Olise.
The good news for Palace’s fans is the return of Wilfried Zaha who scored last weekend at Villa Park only to see the goal disallowed for a marginal offside.
The Glaziers ended up losing that game 1-0 (an own goal), ending a run of three consecutive draws in the Premier League.
They will hardly return to winning ways here against Manchester City who are enormous favorites, especially knowing they have improved their performances of late.
Pep Guardiola’s men are on a streak of three successive victories across competitions. They did not have any problems last Saturday in the home fixture against Newcastle, celebrating a 2-0 victory in a one-way street at Etihad Stadium.
Guardiola can be particularly satisfied with Phil Foden who has been the team’s best player in the last three outings.

- It was the only game of the last six H2H meetings between Palace and Man City which saw goals scored at both ends.
Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Prediction
Manchester City have finally kept back-to-back clean sheets in the last two games across competitions. We fancy them of making it three on the spin against the non-inspiring and rather toothless Crystal Palace attack on Saturday.
You can back the away win to nil at the 2.00 odds, while we will also take the attractive 3.60 odds for Phil Foden to score anytime at Selhurst Park.
