The Premier League champions Manchester City face Crystal Palace at the Etihad in a game from the 17th round of the competition. We advise you to stay with us and our accurate soccer predictions for weekend games.
Manchester City were in a run of four consecutive wins without a win in the league, but last weekend they finally got back on the right path with a 2-1 win against Luton Town away from home. Even without the injured Erling Haaland, City scored twice thanks to Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish. Luton Town were ahead at halftime, but in the second half City showed their true worth.
Erling Haaland remains out of action in Manchester City’s squad. It means that most likely Julian Alvarez will start at the top of the attack again. Meanwhile Kevin De Bruyne and Jeremy Doku remain out of action, too.
During the week Manchester City claimed another win – against Red Star in the Champions League. Even with a lot of young players in the pitch, Guardiola’s team secured a 3-2 win. Micah Hamilton, Rico Lewis and Kalvin Philips from a penalty kick scored for the Cityzens.
Crystal Palace’s current shape is not good at all – four losses and one draw in the last five games. Because of this Palace fell to 15th place. Now the question is – can the manager Roy Hodgson use his experience to revive the team? He has done it before, but it’s never easy.
In the previous round Crystal Palace faced Liverpool at home and went ahead, but in the second half conceded twice. It was Jean Mateta who scored the hosts’ only goal in the game from a penalty kick.
That’s the accurate soccer predictions for weekend games for the Premier League clash between Manchester City and Crystal Palace at the Etihad. Let’s see how this one will go. Surely City are the favorites!
