Free tips FA Cup: Crystal Palace vs Man City Preview and Betting Tips (3pm, Saturday)

Last year’s finalists Crystal Palace welcome Manchester City to Selhurst Park in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Eagles needed two legs in the last round to get past League 1 side Bolton, whilst Manchester City mauled West Ham 0-5 at the London Stadium.


Crystal Palace v Man City Past Meetings

Palace have beaten City in two of their last three matches at Selhurst Park, but their most recent fixture ended in defeat. That was last November in the league, when two Yaya Toure goals sealed a 1-2 win for the away side.


Crystal Palace v Man City Stats

Crystal Palace have only managed two home wins from 11 against Premier League opposition this season. Man City meanwhile have managed nine wins from 14 away matches against Premier League teams in all competitions.

Over 2.5 goals has happened in 82% of the Sky Blues’ away league matches, and in 60% of Palace’s home matches.


Crystal Palace Team News 

Big Sam will likely make a host of changes, with Premier League survival taking precedence. Starts should be handed to squad players such as Andros Townsend, Joe Ledley and Lee Chung-Yong.


Man City Team News 

Fernandinho will sit out his fourth and final match, after picking up his second straight red card of the season against Burnley. Pep will likely field a strong line-up, although starts may be given to Fabian Delph and Jesus Gabriel.

Reason for Crystal Palace v Man City Betting Tips

This all-Prem FA Cup tie pits the league’s worst home side against one of the strongest on the road. Sam Allardyce’s arrival at the club hasn’t had the sort of impact the Palace fans were hoping for. After last weekend’s loss to Everton, the London side have now lost their last four games against Premier League opposition.

Pep Guardiola has had his own critics this season, but did manage to silence them somewhat with last week’s display against Totttenham. His tactics were spot on, playing a high-pressing top four who didn’t let Spurs play out from the back.

Selhurst Park isn’t a happy place at the moment, and the City players could feed off that with a quick start. They managed to sweep aside an out of sorts West Ham last round, with three goals in the first half. Back City to start quickly again, and score within the first 30 minutes at 5/4 with William Hill.

Given Palace’s woeful home form, it’s no surprise that City are a short price to win, with William Hill’s 6/10 the best odds available. With City averaging 3.45 goals on the road this season, and playing against a struggling Palace side, a better bet would be on the goals market.

You can get City to score 3 or more at 9/4 with Paddy Power. Don’t look too far for first goalscorer either – star striker Sergio Aguero has netted 10 times in his last 11 FA Cup appearances.
