Premier League: Manchester City vs. Crystal Palace [Predictions, Live Stream]
The Premier League continues with the sixth week of the 38-week season. Here is everything you need to know about Manchester City versus Crystal Palace.
Manchester City takes on Crystal Palace at Etihad Stadium in Manchester on Saturday as the Premier League enters Matchday 6 of the 38-week season.
Kickoff is slated for 10 a.m. ET on Sept. 23. The matchday is being broadcast by multiple providers for those who call the game football, soccer fans in the U.S. will be able to cheer their team on by watching NBC SN or Universo.
U.S.-based fans can also subscribe to the Premier League Pass on NBC Sports Gold. The Premier League Pass costs $50.
About 250 Premier League games this season will be televised on NBC, NBC SN and CNBC or available for streaming on NBC Sports Live. Another 130 games will be available exclusively on NBC Sports Gold.
This has been a matchup largely dominated by Manchester City even before the money started rolling into the club.
Dating back to 1999, Crystal Palace has beaten City just twice.
It’s doubtful that record will change given the statuses of these two clubs.
Manchester City is flying high with wins in their past four matches (three Premier League, one Champions League), including a memorable 5-0 drubbing of Liverpool on Sept. 9.
It looks as though the Manchester rivalry could be in full swing this year too, making every match extremely important to the Citizens. After five matches, both City and Manchester United are tied atop the table with 13 points and have a goal differential of plus-14.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, is in disarray.
The Eagles have yet to win a match…or score a goal this season. The 450 scoreless minutes have set a Premier League record for the longest goalless streak to ever start a season.
