Crystal Palace vs Manchester City should be one of the most exciting opening games of the 9th Premier League Round, which will be held at Selhurst Park, in London.

During the 5 last meetings between these two teams, Citizens won 3 times. However, Crystal Palace also took a win even playing at Etihad Stadium in Manchester last season. Only 1 game finished with less than 4 scored goals in the match.
Last year Eagles finished in 12th position. This is not enough for such a physically and mentally strong team with great players. The club made only a few changes in the squad. They sold Aaron Wan-Bissaka who proved that he worth playing in a bigger club. Roy Hodgson really showing the better results with each year, and we hope to see this season as most successful for them. At the moment, Crystal Palace won 4 out of 8 played games, losing only to Tottenham and surprisingly against newcomers Sheffield United. Hosts still unbeaten at home staying on the list together with Liverpool, Leicester, and Arsenal.
Jordan Ayew became the top scorer of the team. The newcomer from Swansea playing very strong football. He scored 3 goals and started in 7 games already. Even the club star Wilfred Zaha showing weaker results playing still without scoring any goal. However, he showed great football during this international break for the Ivory Coast scoring goal and giving an assist. Maybe this should push him up to his last season’s form. The last match, Eagles won over the West Ham playing at Olympic Stadium. Thanks to Ayew’s late goal, they got 3 points and strengthened their position in the table.
Citizens showing their Premier League football trying to say us that the biggest target of the season in the UEFA Champions League. In Premier League they already lost two games and are 8 points away from leaders Liverpool which have won all the games. At the moment City already lost points in 3 matches, what is a really weak result for defending Champions. Of course, they have an absolutely dominating attacking lineup as they already scored 27 goals in 8 matches, knowing that 2 were lost. In Champions League they stand at 1st place with 6 points, 5 scored goals and 0 conceded. They were very lucky with group stage teams, as most of them can’t compete with such a Giant.
Before the national break, Manchester City at Etihad Stadium met Wolverhampton. The almost whole game they dominated in defense, attack and other positions. However, several mistakes and Adama Traore in one game scored more than in whole last season’s matches. Two late goals gave an important 3 points for guests Wolves and let down Citie’s morale. In general, troubles in Manchester City’s game giving a big chance to find opportunities of taking points for Crystal Palace.
Unfortunately, Leroy Sane, Aymeric Laporte, and John Stones will miss the next game due to injuries.
