Saturday Premier League Action :heart_eyes:

Crystal Palace vs. Manchester City

Brighton vs. Leeds

Chelsea vs. Fulham

Everton vs. Aston Villa


Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Preview:

Crystal Palace have once again managed to retain their Premier League status, although they are yet to mathematically stave off relegation. However, with 18th-placed Fulham a whopping 11 points adrift, it is safe to assume that the Eagles are not dropping down to the Championship. Having said that, Roy Hodgson’s men have tailed off a bit lately, winning just once since the end of February, although their fixture run has been quite horrendous as well.

Manchester City, on the other hand, have been on quite a roll since the turn of the year, leaving neighbours and second-placed Manchester United far behind. The ten-point gap is practically insurmountable, and it is highly likely that the Citizens will lift the Premier League title for a third time under Pep Guardiola. The visitors will further be buoyed by their crucial 2-1 win over PSG in the UEFA Champions League this week.

The reverse fixture, played at the Etihad back in January, saw Manchester City cruise to a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace.


Crystal Palace vs Manchester City Team News

James McArthur, James Tomkins, Mamadou Sakho, Connor Wickham and Nathan Ferguson are all ruled out for Palace, but Gary Cahill may be fit enough to feature.

City will be without the suspended John Stones but otherwise Guardiola has his pick of players for this one, and may rotate heavily ahead of the Champions League semi-final second leg on Tuesday.


Some Key Stats ahead of the match

  • Crystal Palace have lost 13 of their last 17 Premier League meetings with Manchester City, failing to score on 10 occasions (W2 D2).

  • Manchester City have scored a Premier League-high 32 goals away from home this season.

  • Crystal Palace have won just two of their 23 Premier League matches against sides at the top of the table (D4 L17), with both of those victories coming against Chelsea.

  • Manchester City have won 10 Premier League away matches in a row, scoring 26 goals and conceding just four. In all competitions, they have won 18 successive fixtures on the road (this excludes cup ties at Wembley, since it is a neutral venue).

  • Crystal Palace have conceded 25 top-flight home goals this season, a total exceeded only by Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion.

  • Wilfried Zaha’s total of 10 league goals equals his highest figure in a single season, set in 2018/19. He has failed to score in all 12 of his league and cup appearances against Manchester City.


Last time out…


Chelsea vs Fulham

Chelsea have found stable footing under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel, having become one of the most solid teams in all of Europe with the German tactician in-charge. However, in recent weeks, the Blues have appeared to be a bit wobbly, seeing as they have failed to win four of their last eight games in all competitions. Having said that, the 1-1 draw with Real Madrid earlier this week was a creditable performance by the hosts.

Fulham, on the other hand, look primed to be drop right back down to the Championship after having managed to rake in just one point from their last five outings in the Premier League. In this period, Brighton & Hove Albion have gradually pulled away from them and are currently seven points clear at 17th on the table. With wins being hard to come by, the Cottagers are unlikely to stave off relegation.

The reverse fixture, played at Craven Cottage back in January, saw Chelsea eke out a narrow 1-0 win over Fulham, with Mason Mount scoring the only goal of the game.


Chelsea vs Fulham Team News

Mateo Kovacic is the only injury concern for the hosts, who are likely to field somewhat of a rotated line-up ahead of next week’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid.

Kenny Tete could be back following COVID-19 isolation, although Marek Rodak is an injury doubt, Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo are definitely ruled out, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek is ineligible to face his parent club.


Key Stats

  • Chelsea are unbeaten in 18 home games against Fulham in all competitions since a second tier defeat in October 1979 (W10 D8).

  • Chelsea have lost just one of their 14 Premier League games under Thomas Tuchel, which was a 5-2 thrashing at home by West Bromwich Albion (W8 D5). The Blues have kept a clean sheet in 10 of these fixtures.

  • Fulham have not won a top-flight London derby in 23 attempts since beating West Ham United 2-1 in January 2014 (D5 L18).

  • Fulham have dropped 13 points from winning positions in away fixtures in the Premier League this season, the worst record in the division.

  • Chelsea boast the best record in London derbies this season, winning six of eight and only losing once.



Crystal Palace 0-2 Manchester City

City takes another huge step towards the Premier League Title :boom:

Brighton wins against Leeds and takes a nice step towards safety. Provisionally ten points ahead of the red zone after Matchday 34 of the Premier League. A perfect day for the Seagulls


Kai Havertz opens the scoring for Chelsea!


What a touch from Mount who slips a wonderful ball in behind the Fulham defense, right to the foot of Havertz who calmly places it into the back of the net.

What a start!
