All the best odds from Paddy Power ahead of Sunday afternoon's Premier League clash...
After comfortably beating a West Bromwich Albion side which has taken points off Manchester City’s title rivals Liverpool and Chelsea already this season, Manuel Pellegrini takes his team to Selhurst Park this Sunday in search of three more points.
With Palace currently on a five game winning streak this is a clash which many will view as a potential banana-skin. However those five wins have secured the London club’s Premier League status for another season which could possibly take the edge off their play.
City to win 1-0
Only Sunderland (14) have scored fewer home goals in the Premier League than Crystal Palace’s 15.
However only six sides have conceded fewer home goals than the Eagles (18). This will go a long way to explaining the thirteen seperate 1-0 results Palace fans have witnessed in 38 games this season.
City beat Palace by that very score at the Etihad Stadium back in December thanks to an Edin Dzeko strike.
A repeat 1-0 City win pays out at 6/1.
If Dzeko scores first and City win 1-0 the scorecast bet pays out at 18/1.
Aguero to score first
Sergio Aguero is the most popular choice in the goalscorer markets having scored in the win over West Brom. The striker looked sharp in that game and is the strong favourite to score first at 3/1.
City to win 2-1
Manchester City won 2-1 on their only previous Premier League visit to Selhurst Park. A repeat of that scoreline pays out at 7/1.
City to win and handicap betting
However given that only Newcastle have managed to score more than two goals against Palace since Tony Pulis took charge back in November a low-scoring City win may be the way to go.
