A Big Top 4 Step For Pep: Man City v Crystal Palace Ultimate Form Guide

By timgarrett IN General,Premier League,Ultimate Form Guide - 19:35 May 5th 2017

Manchester City’s first year under Pep Guardiola may not have gone exactly to plan, with the club set to endure the increasingly rare occurrence of a trophy-less season, but there is still all to play for as they approach the climax of the Premier League season.

Next up for them is a Palace side that, despite having just suffered back-to-back defeats, will fancy their chances at The Etihad. Sam Allardyce’s side has beaten Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea in recent weeks and would dearly love to add another top 6 scalp to their collection here.

And our Ultimate Form Guide (above) actually suggests that they have a fighting chance of doing exactly that. Despite sitting 12 Premier League places below their hosts, Palace come out on top in 8 out of 15 key statistical areas over the pair’s last 10 respective outings.

In attack, there’s little to pick between the 2 with averages of 1.6 and 1.4 goals for per game. Palace are, however, taking more of the chances that come their way with an 18% conversion rate.

City’s defense has been their Achilles heel all season long, and that continues to be the case. They have just 3 clean sheets in their last 10 and an alarming 19% of shots on their goal are currently finding the back of the net.

Overall, Palace are the side heading into the fixture in better form, but they also have less to play for with survival now all-but secured. Will City’s higher greater need, combined with a home advantage, help them in upsetting the formbook? Only time will tell.
