Crystal Palace hosts the champion Manchester City in a game from the 34th round of the English Premier League. Here’s the moment to talk about this match a little bit.
Right now Crystal Palace are 12th in the league standings with 39 points won and a record of 11 wins, 6 draws and 16 defeats. In their last five games the Londoners are winning and losing on a regular basis – three wins and two defeats. Of course, for Palace the most important thing is the fact that the team is on a safe distance from the relegation zone, which brings them closer to another year in the Premier League.
In their last game Roy Hodgson’s boys celebrated a 1-0 win during the visit to Newcastle United at the St. James’ Park. The winning goal in the game was scored in the 81th minute, when Luka Milivojevic put the ball behind Martin Dubravka’s net from a penalty kick.
Meanwhile Manchester City continue their fight for another title in the Premier League. Right now the Cityzens are 2nd in the league with 80 points, being 2 points behind the leader Liverpool, but also having a game in hand. City will hope that Liverpool will make a mistake against Chelsea on the same day.
In their last game in the league Manchester City hosted Cardiff City and celebrated a 2-0 win. Both goals were scored in the first half, when Kevin De Bruyne opened the score and Lery Sane scored another one in the last minutes of the first half.
During the week Manchester City had a tough game in the Champions League, which they lost against Tottenham Hotspur in London. Because of this, most probably the manager Pep Guardiola will make some rotations in his starting line-up.
That’s what we had to say about the Premier League clash between Crystal Palace and Manchester City on Sunday. Good luck!
