Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals

KickOff's prediction and odds from the bookies suggest that this Premier League showdown will be on for the neutrals, with at least 3 goals to scored in the match. As both sides are unconvincing in the WDW market given their latest form, we're going with the statistics and past head-to-head (H2H) records below, both of which point strongly towards over 2.5 goals being the best bet here.

Goal Statistics

Manchester City's defensive record is to be admired, Pep Guardiola's men having conceded 1 or less in 10 consecutive English Premier League games. An average PG rating of 1.2 for Crystal Palace makes sense in this context.

Manchester City's forwards have been excellent of late, scoring 2 goals or more in 8 consecutive English Premier League matches. A PG of 2.0 suggests that run should continue on Saturday lunch time.
