Capital One Cup: Man City vs. Crystal PalacePublished October 28, 2015 by Sol FH
Manchester City vs Crystal Palace live tonight at 20:45 GMT, with pre-match betting available at bet365 sports.
The outright leaders of the Premier League Man. City get set to host Crystal Palace tonight, as the teams begin the fourth round of the Capital One Cup. Crystal Palace will face the other team from Manchester, United on Saturday in a Premier League clash so this match will serve as an example for what's to come this weekend.
Crystal Palace have not won at Manchester City since 1990. Tonight's match would be the perfect time for the underdogs to win, as it would mean a spot in the quarter finals of the Capital One Cup. Crystal Palace have never won the FA Cup or the League Cup, but Alan Pardew's side is ready and want to win badly tonight. They will have their striker Dwight Gayle back in action, which is great news for Crystal Palace, as City is still missing Sami Nasri, Fernandinho, Sergio Aguero and David Silva out for various reasons.
If City can win tonight they will be that much closer to their fourth league championship, which would match their rivals Manchester United. Manuel Pellegrini swept Sunderland in the last round 4-1 and they should do the same thing to Crystal Palace tonight.
Crystal Palace started the season out very strong, but have recently fallen off their A game and lost to West Ham at home and to Leicester City last week. The Eagles are without their left-back Pape Souare and this will lead to Adrian Mariappa to make his debut.
