It’s time to head to lovely Manchester for another round of Premier League action. The local lads of Manchester City are on a hot streak, and look to take the lead in the League with a win over Crystal Palace. But will the Eagles rain on the Sky Blues’ parade?
The Crystal Palace Eagles will travel to Manchester City on Jan. 16, as the Sky Blues will roll out the welcome mat for another wonderful Premier League matchup. The Eagles are desperate for a win, but Man City has been dominant as of late. It all starts at 10:00 A.M. EST, so be sure you’re set to see this clash when the squads hit the field.
Man City is in third place in the Premier League, per Yahoo Sports, and this game will give them a chance to match leaders Arsenal and Leicester City on points. They’ve been on an five-game unbeaten streak, though they are a bit disappointed that they only tied, 0-0, with Everton on Jan. 13.
However, Man City will have to try and put away the tricky Eagles without the help of captain Vincent Kompany. Team manager Manuel Pellegrini told reporters that Vincent, who is out with a calf injury, will not return until “the last part of the season,” according to the BBC.
Connor Wickham is expected to start for Crystal Palace for the Man City game. The striker played as a substitute for the Jan. 12 victory for Aston Villa, according to Daily Mail. His help will be appreciated, as Yannick Bolaise is out with a leg injury and Dwight Gayle is questionable.
Man City have won nine out of the last 10 meetings with Crystal Palace and the Blues’ Yaya Toure has scored in four of his last five meetings against the Eagles. It looks like history is on Man City’s side in this game, but will Crystal Palace pull off the upset?
