Monday night’s English Premier League football is a vital one for Manchester City who will be a popular choice to take maximum points from their visit to Crystal Palace.
Current League Position 11th (as of 3rd April)
Last Six League Results W3 D1 L2
Home Record P14 W4 D3 L7 GS 17 GC20
With 36 points from 30 matches, Crystal Palace should already be safe from any threat of relegation. Their home record is nothing special but they have beaten Liverpool and Spurs at this ground earlier in the campaign and last season they also ended Liverpool’s hopes of taking the Premier League title when they came back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 at Selhurst Park.
Current League Position 2nd (as of 3rd April)
Last Six League Results W4 D0 L2
Away Record P15 W8 D4 L3 GS 31 GC 16
Manchester City need league leaders Chelsea to start dropping points if they are to retain the Premier League title but they also have to improve on their own away form which has seen them win just one of their last five league games outside of Manchester. They were surprisingly beaten 1-0 by lowly Burnley two weeks ago, the first Premier League away game this season where they have failed to score.

There is more at stake for Manchester City who are in danger of finishing the season without a trophy but Crystal Palace are under no pressure whatsoever and they should make a game of it. There are many markets other than the match result to bet on and “both teams to score (yes)” could be the way to go here.
