Odds shown are from William Hill and are subject to change

Two of the form teams in the top-flight meet at Selhurst Park on Saturday, as Crystal Palace host league leaders Manchester City.
Crystal Palace have made a highly promising start to their campaign, winning three out of their four Premier League games so far this season.
The Eagles currently sit second in the Premier League table and last time out enjoyed a surprise 2-1 victory at champions Chelsea. Goals from Bakary Sako and Joel Ward kept the Eagles flying high in the top-flight table.
Palace will once again look to Malian international winger Bakary Sako to provide inspiration from a wide position, as he has scored in both his Palace appearances so far this season, following his summer move from Wolves.
Palace enjoyed a strangely quiet transfer deadline day, as the only real action was striker Glenn Murray moving to Bournemouth.
Manchester City have made a lightning start to the campaign and have a hundred per cent record in the Premier League so far this season. That record was maintained with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Watford last time out, with Raheem Sterling and Fernandinho grabbing a goal each in the second half.
City completed one of the biggest deals of the summer transfer window by signing Belgian international midfielder Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg for a fee in the region of £55million. The 24-year-old will be hoping to thrive at City, after a failed spell in the Premier League with Chelsea earlier in his career.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have only clashed ten times in the Premier League with Manchester City winning fives, Palace winning two games and three games being drawn.
At Selhurst Park the record is very equal, as both teams have claimed two wins and the other game resulted in a draw.
Palace claimed victory last time out when these two teams met in April, but the Eagles had lost the previous seven meetings against the Citizens in all competitions before that win.
The visitors have won their last ten Premier League games. They have also kept clean sheets in all four of their Premier League games so far this season.
At the other end of the field, Manuel Pellegrini’s side have scored two or more goals in their last seven Premier League games, stretching back to the end of last season.

Team News

Palace striker Fraizer Campbell remains on the sidelines through injury. Alan Pardew’s side also have doubts over the fitness of Julian Speroni, Yohan Cabaye, Marouane Chamakh and Mile Jedinak. The only one of the quartet likely to start is French international Cabaye.
Manchester City boss Pellegrini is unlikely to change much about his starting line-up for this clash, with the exception of Kevin De Bruyne possibly coming into the starting line-up in place of Jesus Navas.
Full-backs Pablo Zabaleta and Gael Clichy remain sidelined, while there are also doubts about the fitness of Fernando and Wilfried Bony.

Possible Crystal Palace line-up: McCarthy, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare, McArthur, Cabaye, Puncheon, Sako, Zaha, Wickham

Possible Manchester City line-up: Hart, Sagna, Kompany, Mangala, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Toure, De Bruyne, Silva, Sterling, Aguero

Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Prediction

Crystal Palace are in fine form at the moment. The Eagles could be a big threat to City’s hundred per cent record. However, I do expect the Citizens to scrape past Alan Pardew’s side in a goal-filled encounter at Selhurst Park.
So with that in mind back the over 3.5 goals market at odds of 13/8 with William Hill.
