Manchester City v Crystal Palace stat pack

Prior to Saturday’s game, several interesting stats regarding both teams have emerged:

  • Manchester City have lost two of their past 16 Premier League games against Crystal Palace, though both defeats in this run have come at the Etihad Stadium.
  • Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace won 1-0 at Manchester United earlier this season. The last team to win away at both Manchester clubs in a Premier League season were Leicester in 2020-21, while Hodgson could become the first English manager to do so since Steve McClaren in 2003-04.
  • Since Pep Guardiola was appointed Manchester City manager, only Manchester United (3) have won more away league games against the Citizens than Crystal Palace (2).
  • Though they’re unbeaten in their past 18 Premier League home games, City’s last two at the Etihad Stadium have both finished level (1-1 v Liverpool, 3-3 v Tottenham). They’ve not failed to win three consecutive home league games since October-December 2016.
  • Crystal Palace have won 68.8% of their Premier League points in away games so far this season (11/16), the highest ratio in the division. Three of the Eagles’ four wins so far have come on the road, winning more games in the North West of the country (2) than in London (1).
