Get a massive 7/2 on Manchester City to thrash Crystal Palace

Get a massive 7/2 on Manchester City to thrash Crystal Palace

In the last four games, they have won all four while scoring 17 goals and conceding just one.

Captain Vincent Kompany has resumed training following a short spell on the sidelines with a calf problem and could be in contention to start.

Everything points to a comprehensive City win but as everybody knows, this is a Premier League match and anything could happen.

But he has backed Roy Hodgson - the oldest man ever appointed by a Premier League club - to turn things round at Selhurst Park.

Former Sunderland frontman Connor Wickham is still recovering from injury, while the game comes too soon for winger Wilfried Zaha.

Predicted lineup (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, D. Silva; Sterling, Jesus, Aguero. "They will put a lot of long balls into the box and crosses but I admire Hodgson, he has had a long career and that always deserves respect".

They have won nine of their last 10 Premier League games against Palace and 13 of 14 games in all competitions, dating to March 16, 2002. With such a talented front two it's no wonder that Manchester City have scored so many goals this year (19 in their last 5 games) in addition to the front two though Manchester City have some of the best creative midfielders in the world. After a rest midweek for the game against the Baggies, the Argentine striker is expected to start this weekend and yet again, he will be expected to get his name on the scoresheet. But we are more than strong enough characters to deal with it.

City beat West Brom 2-1 but Gundogan was unable to complete the full 90 minutes after being forced off with an ankle injury after a tackle from behind by Claudio Yacob.

Guardiola has told his players not to take Palace for granted - despite it looking like a home banker.
