Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Betting Tip and prediction. In the last match of 31st round in Premier League Crystal Palace host Manchester City.
Crystal Palace stand at the middle of the table and their main goal is to stay in the best football league in England, True, they have 10 points more than the first team in the relegation zone, but they want to secure their position in Premier League for next season as soon as possible. Home team is not under pressure, so they will be fully motivated to make good result against last season champion.
Their current form is very solid with three wins in their last four Premier league matches. Crystal Palace miss suspended their top scorer Jedinak (19/5 m) and injured Thomas (1/0 m), Mutch (4/0 m), Lee (0/0 m) and their second top scorer Campbell (19/4 f). Chamakh (15/1 f) and Ledley (26/2 m) are both doubtful.
Manchester City stand at the 4th position and they have small chances to win the title. Nine points difference between leader Chelsea and City could be unreachable, but team from Manchester want to finish the season in top 3 and qualify in the UEFA Champions League directly.
Their recent performance is not at the high level – in the last 6 matches in all competitions they have managed to win only two games.
Good news for the visitors is that they have almost full squad available, except Milner (25/3 m) who’s doubtful.
