Manchester City go up against Crystal Palace in the Premier League 2022-23 at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on Saturday, August 27, 2022, at 7:30 PM IST.

The defending Premier League champions, Manchester City, began the new season with two wins on the bounce before a 3-3 draw against Newcastle United last time out. Crystal Palace, meanwhile, beat Aston Villa 3-1 in their last league match to seal their first victory of the 2022-23 season. The Eagles followed it up with a 2-0 win in the EFL Cup against Oxford United. 

The Citizens have been the dominant force against Crystal Palace, winning 14 of the last 20 matches between the two sides. Man City are once again expected to win against the Eagles. 

However, Crystal Palace have defeated Manchester City twice in the last four Premier League seasons, with both wins coming at the Etihad Stadium. The Eagles won 3-2 in the 2018-19 season and sealed a 2-0 victory last season, while also securing a goalless draw in the second league match of the 2021-22 season. Crystal Palace also notably held Liverpool to a draw at Anfield earlier this season. Manchester City were poor defensively in their last league game and the pacey Eagles’ attack, led by Wilfried Zaha and Jordan Ayew, could thrive off that. Zaha scored against the Citizens last season at the Etihad Stadium while, midfielder Luka Milivojevic scored from the penalty spot in the win back in 2018.
