Sergio Aguero broke Thierry Henry’s record for the most Premier League goals from an overseas player, with his hat-trick against Aston Villa last time out taking him to 177 league goals, as Man City ran out 6-1 victors at Villa Park.
Meanwhile, Palace held 10-man Arsenal to a stalemate at Selhurst Park to maintain their spot at ninth in the table, with a heavily deflected Jordan Ayew goal settling the scores in the 54th minute.
The visiting fans will certainly be starting to reminisce about their last trip to Etihad, where Andros Townsend’s special strike handed them a 2-1 lead, before a Kyle Walker tackle gave Luka Milivojevic the third goal from the penalty spot as the game eventually finished 3-2.
However, the Eagles have lost each of their other six visits to this stadium over the past decade by an aggregate scoreline of 23-1 and we somewhat doubt they’ll be able to provide another upset.
Indeed, they’ve also lost five of their last seven winless outings against the ‘Big Six’ and this seasons’ Leicester outfit, four of which have been defeats to nil, as they managed just the solitary first half strike across all of them.
HT/FT - Man City/Man City
Pep Guardiola’s charges managed to down Dean Smith’s men without any of Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva or Kyle Walker, which speaks for itself as to how good the hosts have been.
In fact, they’ve now won 26 of their 30 fixtures at this stadium since the start of last season, 17 of which saw them winning at both half time and full time, whilst they’ve won to nil in nine of their last 14 home victories now.
Only West Ham, Watford and Norwich have netted fewer goals on the road than Roy Hodgson’s men this term, as they’ve plundered just two goals from their four trips since December.
Man City To Win To Nil
The teams they visited in that time were Watford, Newcastle, Southampton and Norwich, all of which are miles apart from the Citizens and so the win to nil certainly holds some value in this encounter.
It’s also worth noting that Aymeric Laporte continues to get closer to a return from injury and that’ll certainly make the current defenders have to put in a shift in order to maintain their starting berth for when he does return.
That healthy competition should shine through this weekend and we’d expect to see them keep a clean sheet.
