Crystal Palace vs Man City: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Sunday, April 14, 2019, 9:05 am
Selhurst Park, London
Roy Hodgson welcomes Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to Selhurst Park knowing that Crystal Palace’s Premier League status is all but assured.
Crystal Palace’s victory at St James’ Park over Newcastle has just about kept them up for another season of Premier League football – and although there are some weak points in the squad, the Eagles have looked impressive at times. Luca Milivojevic converted the penalty that sealed the three points and the Serbian has been instrumental in many of their victories this year.
Now is the time of the season that Pep Guardiola will be hoping that his team can keep their nerve as they fight on three fronts for more trophies to add to their EFL Cup triumph in February. With such strength in depth City should have the squad for the matches ahead – they just need not to slip up.
Crystal Palace will not have been the bookies favourites to go down this season but the lack of goals from their strikers will be a concern at the club. Wilfried Zaha is immensely talented but has only scored eight times this season in the league – although sports betting sites may still offer relatively short odds for the Ivory Coast international to score here.
Liverpool look like they are pushing Manchester City all the way for the title and both sides will know that any dropping of points could be crucial to their chances of lifting the Premier League trophy in May. City should get another three points for the cause here and could win this 3-1.
Luka Milivojevic to score at any time
Palace may not get many goals but if they manage to get a penalty then you can almost guarantee that Milivojevic will score.
Manchester City to win and both teams to score
With the Premier League trophy in their sights it would seem likely that Manchester City will get another three points here – but Palace could make it difficult for the visitors and 10bet have City to win and both teams.

- Crystal Palace have only scored 39 goals in their 33 Premier League games so far this season – but they have also only conceded on 43 occasions.
- Sergio Aguero still leads the way in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot. The Argentinian striker has 19 top flight goals this season.
- When Crystal Palace beat Manchester City in December it was their second successive Premier League victory – something they have failed to do again in the rest of the season.
- Manchester City have scored the most goals again in the league this season – and have also completed the highest number of passes.
