This weekend in England will be played the fourth round games of the Englisg FA Cup, and one of the entertaining games, will be the one that awaits us at Selhurst Park, when a needy Crystal Palace, receive the visit of Manchester City.
Sam Allardyce’s leaders are not doing well at all, coming from a 1-0 home defeat to Everton and in this way they remain complicated in the Premier League, where they are currently penultimate with 16 points, being one of three Teams that are losing the category.
And is that the season for Crystal Palace is not positive, they have only been able to add two victories in their last 18 games adding all the competitions and look at the FA Cup as a showcase to make change to their fans.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s time at the helm of Manchester City started very well, but as things have changed things have changed and the city is in the fifth place with 43 points, away from Chelsea and threatening to qualify A UEFA tournament.
Manchester City comes from tying at home to two goals against Tottenham Hotspur in a game where he was up on the scoreboard by two goals difference and that defensive failings and excessive confidence played a trick on him, and they know that in this game they do not have They make the same mistakes as they can pay dearly.
In direct clashes, it must be said that Manchester City are on a winning streak against Crystal Palace, winning the last 4 games.
While on the whole, the city has 20 victories for 10 of the Palace and this superiority has also been playing in Selhurst Park, where Crystal Palace has won 7 games, while Manchester City did 9 times.
So, while the timing of both teams is not the best, we believe that the victory will be for Manchester City, Guardiola to willing to leave with the best he has except for Gundogan who is out for a long-term injury; Meanwhile to Allardyce very little matters this game and his look is to maintain the category.
Therefore, despite being a visitor and winning in such a condition is difficult for any team, Manchester City can not afford to stay empty handed, they are already out of the League Cup, away in the Premier League and then With the investment made, the FA Cup paints as a good alternative to change the spirits of a hobby that have the desire to shout champion this season.
