Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Despite being regarded as hot favourites to win Saturday’s football match against newcomers Middlesbrough, Manchester City picked up no more than one point from the game. Kun Aguero extended his goal-scoring run in the English top flight and he is likely to prove a handful for Crystal Palace defenders in Saturday’s clash at Selhurst Park. The Citizens aim to regain top position in the Premier League standings and we predict that Pep Guardiola’s troops will stick to their attacking style of play. Crystal Palace have been slipping down the standings week by week. The Eagles are on a four-game losing run ahead of the visit of Manchester City and it has to be noted that they conceded 10 goals in previous three league fixtures. The capital club are just one point clear of the relegation zone, but despite the fact that they face a must-win situation against Manchester City, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors this time out.
