[statsfc-table key=”Lmls_WiJcW5z1J9v6j8VupFOtOoDIQijuh2mI1Fu” date=”2017-12-30″ competition=”EPL”]
They will be missing WMF Chung Young Lee and Striker Connor Wickham due to injuries. Defenders Mamadou Sakho, Joel Ward, and Damien Delaney will be missing this game too, which makes their back really poor. Crystal Palace is currently on 17th rank with 18 points. As they are only three points ahead of the last position, a draw or defeat will put them at a risk of a major downfall. A win can take them up to 1 position up, a three-point win can take them up to four positions up.
League leaders will miss CB John Stones, LB Benjamin Mendy due to injuries. CB Vincent Kompany’s presence on the field for this game will also be a question mark. With zero defeats under their name, Manchester City stands at top of the ability with 58 points. Wit a 13 point lead, a draw or defeat will not affect their ranking at all. A win will help them to go even further and make it harder for other teams to chase them down.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Predictions
In both historical and recent terms, Manchester City is expected to dominate this completely. We even doubt if Crysta City will manage to plant a goal. Their historical success against league leaders is really limited. Manchester City will once again prove why they deserve to be on top of the table in the Premier League:
Final Score 0 – 4
