Crystal Palace vs Manchester City prediction and betting tips for the 19/10/2019 Premier League fixture at 5:30 pm. Another defeat for Guardiola’s side has left Manchester City with an eight-point gap to bridge.
Manchester City have dropped points on three occasions already this season. They now face sixth-placed Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in what could be another tricky tie. Even at this early stage in the season, City cannot afford many more slip-ups and they’ll be hoping their rivals Manchester United will do them a favour and take points off Liverpool in the Super Sunday fixture.

It’s not been the start Manchester City fans were after. Defeats to Norwich and Wolves are alarming to say the least and has left Manchester City eight points adrift of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table with just eight games played. Liverpool have a tough run of fixtures coming up, including a match against Manchester City, and this could go a long way to shaping the title race even at this early stage of the season. Guardiola cannot afford many more slip-ups or Liverpool will be out of sight before Christmas.
Crystal Palace are flying high in the top six after eight games. Only Liverpool have conceded fewer than their eight goals so far. The Eagles have struggled to find the net, scoring just eight times. It has been their solid defence that has seen them pick up points. Selhurst Park has seen some good results in recent weeks, with wins against Aston Villa and Norwich and a draw against Wolves giving them seven points in the last nine.
This is no time for another slip-up. If Manchester City are to defend their title they cannot afford back-to-back losses to midtable sides. Kevin de Bruyne has not started in either of their defeats and will be back for this game after a knock kept him out of the match against Wolves. With Sergio Aguero leading the line and the quality of both the Silva’s, Sterling and the in-form Mahrez, City should find a way through against a tough defence. City to win to nil is priced at 6/5 and that’s the first of this weekend’s Crystal Palace v Man City betting tips.
The Argentine has shown remarkably consistent form this season. Aguero has scored in six of his seven league starts, bagging two braces in the process. With penalty duties to boot, we’re backing Aguero to score against Palace this weekend. Aguero to score anytime is priced at 4/7 and even though the odds are short, it would be a good selection to add to anytime goalscorer accumulator this weekend.
City may have struggled to break down Wolves last time out but do not underestimate the importance of Kevin de Bruyne. The Belgian has been Manchester City’s stand out player and arguably the best player in the league this season. His return to action should give City the boost they need. A 2-0 away win is priced at 7/1.
