Football tipsters Manchester City look to the top after two goals by the Stones
Manchester City is already at the foot of the top, after recording its eighth consecutive victory in all competitions. Joseph Guardiola`s team had no problems at home to Crystal Palace and won 4-0. The Citizens succeeded easily and without demonstrating their best football. John Stones scored two goals for the hosts. The defender opened the scoring in the 26th minute and made it 3-0 in the second half. Between his hits and Ilkay Gundogan scored with a wonderful shot. Shortly before the end, Rahim Stirling was also among the goal scorers after a great foul. City climbed to second place, just two points behind Manchester United, and also played one game less than their city rival. Guardiola`s team did not concede a goal in the fourth consecutive match.
Palace is a difficult team to overcome and from the beginning of the match prediction by asia betting predictions showed that today will not be different, although it is without its star Wilfried Zaha. The Londoners have had serious success at the Etihad in the last two seasons. They ended in a draw 2:2 last season, and the previous one won 3:2.
The `Citizens` controlled the ball, but failed to threaten the opponent`s goal, as the guests were perfectly arranged. That changed in the 26th minute when De Bruyne`s cross was intercepted by a Stones header and the result was opened. For the defender, this was the first goal in the Premier League for the club. The Belgian made his assist at number 100 in all tournaments for City.
The goal gave even more peace to the hosts, who controlled the events on the field. Guardiola`s team did not create situations, but could now wait patiently for an opportunity. After the break, Man City had an even bigger advantage. A wonderful performance by Gundogan doubled the lead of the `citizens` in the 56th minute and largely put an end to the intrigue. This lead allowed the `sky-blues` to play calmly and confidently until the end of the match. John Stones scored his second goal in the 68th minute. After a corner kick, Diaz shot with his head, goalkeeper Guaita shot, the ball ended up in the Stones and he sent it into the net.
Crystal Palace did nothing to hinder her opponent. Roy Hodgson`s players seemed to be waiting for the end of the match, hoping not to score more goals. At a training pace, City controlled the events on the field, but also looked for opportunities for a new goal. Two minutes before the end, Stirling made the score 4:0, after a magnificent direct free kick.
MAN CITY - CRYSTAL PALACE 4:0
