Crystal Palace – Manchester City
Crystal Palace hosts the leader Manchester City in a match from the 21th round of the English Premier League.
Who will stop Man City’s incredible run of consecutive wins in the Premier League? This is the big question now. City have won 18 consecutive times in the Premier League, which is an absolute record in the history of the competition. The Citizens are marching on towards the title and most surely they won’t be stopped of winning it.
Just look at Manchester City’s stats so far. They have won 58 points and they have a record of 19 wins and just one draw from 20 games. Still unbeaten. They have scored 61 goals so far and conceded just 12. They have the best attack and the best defense in the league. They are just spectacular.
Meanwhile Crystal Palace managed to improve under the guidance of Roy Hodgson. For a long time Palace were at the bottom of the league, but the experienced Hodgson managed to find a way to lift them up. Now Crystal Palace are 16th in the Premier League, having 18 points and a record of 4 wins, 6 draws and 10 defeats.
In their last game Palace suffered a 2-3 defeat against Arsenal, which was their first loss from awhile.
What the team news tell us before the match?
Crystal Palace are without the injured Mammadou Sakho, Joel Ward and Damien Delaney, while Connor Wickham is doubtful for the match.
Manchester City can’t use Benjamin Mendy, but John Stones is nearing to a comeback. The captain Vincent Kompany is once again injured, which is not a big surprise, we believe.
If Crystal Palace stop Manchester City’s incredible run of consecutive wins, this would be a huge achievement for them. Let’s see if they are going to be able to do it.
