Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Match Predictions January 17, 2021
Manchester City are the clear favourites. Their last 6 matches have seen them record emphatic win after win, the last of which they won 1-0 against Brighton thanks to a lone goal from Phil Foden on the stroke of halftime.
What stands out for City so far is the strength of their backline, they have only conceded twice in their last six games.
Their attack has been quite decent, equally raking in as many as 11 goals in the last 5 games with noteworthy performances against other top clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United. This shows their seriousness as English Premier League title contenders.
The citizens will be hoping to convert this game into 3 points to make a statement about their consistency after a relatively shaky win against Brighton on Wednesday.
Pep Guardiola will be left without Eric Garcia, Cole Palmer and Sergio Aguero due to COVID concerns while Laporte and Ake still remain injured.

Roy Hodgsons’s boys haven’t been too impressive in their last couple of games conceding a total of 13 goals in their last 6 games. They have suffered a run of losses and draws, salvaging a win against Sheffield United on the 2nd of January. Their form which has seen them lose by 7 goals in one match to Liverpool has raised lots of questions about their defence.
Their forward line also has a lot of work to do ahead of the game against City as they were unable in their last game against Wolves to find even one shot on target. They lost that game with their opponents scoring one goal and recording 5 shots on target and grabbing 53% of the possession. A lot of homework has to be done by the Eagles to correct these worrisome trends.
They are currently faced with no fitness problems as their squad is fully available.
