Crystal Palace Form
Apart from falling victim to Tottenham’s best 45-minutes of the season, Crystal Palace have generally been performing above last year’s standards.
They started slowly with a home draw against Everton and a defeat at Sheffield United, but they bounced back in style with a win at Old Trafford which started a run of four wins in their last six.
Palace are also unbeaten in four matches at Selhurst Park, winning two and drawing two. Having struggled for goals in their first few matches; they’ve scored twice to win both their last two matches.
Manchester City Form
Man City are still brilliant when at their best but their defence has caused them to lose two games they were long odds-on to win against Norwich and Wolves.
Admittedly, apart from their defeat at Norwich, they have looked superb on the road this season. They beat West Ham 5-0 in their opening match, which was a good deal more one-sided than Palace’s 2-1 win at West Ham.
City have also won 3-1 at Everton and Bournemouth this season, meaning their four away matches have produced an amazing 18 goals, with at least four in each match.
