MY antepost tips Chelsea have the Premier League title sewn up in my opinion but Man City won’t give up the chase.
The champions can return to second spot by beating Crystal Palace tonight but will still trail the Stamford Bridge men by six points with a game more played.
It’s a must-win for City and I expect them to battle to three points at Selhurst Park. They have won their last seven against Palace and while Alan Pardew has done a great job since taking over he has lost both meetings against top-six clubs (Arsenal and Southampton).
City are 7-10 at Ladbrokes and bet365 and I like the away win and both to score at 13-5 (888sport).
On Saturday every Premier League team netted except Southampton and it’s been a bit of a trend with the top teams winning and conceding – Chelsea 2, Stoke 1; Man Utd 3, Villa 1 and Arsenal 4, Liverpool 1.
Palace have gone 11 league matches at home without keeping a clean sheet but have scored two or more in seven of those outings.
Try both to score at 3-4 (Ladbrokes) and over 2.5 goals at 4-5 at McBookie.
Sergio Aguero is first-scorer favourite at 4-1 with McBookie and Hills but hasn’t netted in 466 minutes. He sits on 98 goals for his club and is 5-1 at McBookie to hit the ton by scoring two or more. Glenn Murray has hit four in four for Palace and is 7-2 at Skybet to net again.
