Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden are joint 5/1 (6.0) favourites to break the deadlock, with the latter looking the better option considering he has scored three times in just four league starts so far.
Odsonne Edouard is the guests’ 14/1 (15.0) front runner as he leads their scoring charts with three goals in six league appearances, although Christian Benteke could be a strong option at 18/1 (19.0) after firing in each of his last two games.
Manchester City vs Crystal Palace preview
While they have not had much luck in terms of victories, the Eagles have certainly provided plenty of entertainment this season – both scoring and conceding in each of their last four games.
Indeed, they have both scored 11 and conceded 11 over the course of the last seven matches, with their four away league games producing 14 goals in total.
Another free-scoring encounter seems likely at a ground where they have seen 33 goals scored in their last eight visits, with Pep Guardiola’s team winning five of those.

On current form, odds of 5/4 (2.25) seem generous on City coming out in their eight consecutive home game against Palace to see over 3.5 goals scored.
