Defending Premier League champions Manchester City will next be playing Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday. Pep Guardiola was handed a blow when his team hosted Wolves in their Matchday 8 clash of the Premier League 2019-20 season. Manchester City's quest to grab their third consecutive Premier League title is currently on a rough patch after the loss against Wolves and simultaneously, rivals Liverpool are eight points clear at the top. The visit to Crystal Palace can be a tricky one as the Eagles are riding high on confidence for now with two back-to-back Premier League wins. The match is scheduled to be on October 19, 2019, 10:00 PM onwards (IST).

Manchester City have only lost an away game against Norwich out of the last 10 they have visited. City have scored at least once in each of their last 15 Premier League away games, netting a total of 36 goals. Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson will be eager to grab three back-to-back Premier League wins with the hope of beating City when they host them. Jordan Ayew has been the key-man for the Eagles this season with his three Premier League goals worth six points for Crystal Palace.
