Betting Tip: Backing a home win with both teams to score

Heading to the Etihad Stadium will not phase Crystal Palace or Sam Allardyce one bit. The Eagles have found real form having previously been embroiled in a real relegation scrap, thanks in no small part to their victories away at both Chelsea and Liverpool.

Neither were a fluke, with Palace setting up perfectly to counter attack at pace, while also using their superior strength to bully both of the big boys. They are more than capable of repeating the trick a third time against Pep Guardiola’s men. The win at Anfield gave the blueprint for how they will look to play, because both City and Liverpool play a more open game than Chelsea.

Guardiola is unlikely to change from his usual system at home of playing just one deep central midfielder, leaving his team exposed. John Stones will be an obvious target, because he will look to play out from the back and lacks the physical strength to deal with the likes of Christian Benteke, who really gave both Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip, who have similar mindsets, a tough afternoon in the 2-1 win, scoring both goals.

Many expected Palace to fall at Anfield because Mamadou Sakho, an imposing centre back who played so well at Chelsea, was missing as he is on loan from the Reds. His return will be a huge boost for Allardyce, but he will face a different entity going up against Sergio Aguero than he did against Diego Costa. The Argentine will run at him a lot more than going toe-to-toe in a physical battle.

The main reason we suggest you back a home win is, although Palace will be a threat on the counter with the space afforded by City, mainly through Wilfred Zaha and Andros Townsend, they will have more problems to deal with than the two previous wins.

The benefit of playing one central midfielder is it frees up space for another playmaker, and Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva will put the Palace midfield under pressure, penning them in, while Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling will drive them forward from wide areas. Getting the ball to their attacking players could be more of an issue.

City still need to win to as much as possible to guarantee Champions League football next season, but Palace are party-poopers. Expect an open game that will suit the home side, who should go on and get the win.
