Manchester City at a force to be reckoned with at home, where they have not dropped a single point since the last match of the previous season. Crystal Palace are just one spot clear of the relegation zone, and are desperate to get any points. Although Crystal Palace find themselves near the bottom of the standings, they have won three of the last six games; new coach Tony Pulis has done a good job at revitalizing the team. Nonetheless, Manchester City are clearly favorites to win the match.
