This is an early outlook on the Premier League game between Crystal Palace and Manchester City, scheduled to take place on Saturday 1 May at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace

The Eagles are stuck in lower mid-table, currently occupying 13th spot with a 11 point cushion to the drop zone and 8 points off a top half spot.

The motivation isn't on a high at Camp Hodgson and the performances have been substandard as of late:
In the 4 most recent league games, Crystal Palace have created on average 3.00 shot on target per game - the second worst attacking numbers in the league in recent weeks.
In the 4 most recent league games, Crystal Palace have conceded on average 5.75 shot on target per game - one of the worst defensive numbers in the league as of late.
All in all, Crystal Palace display the second worst shots on target difference in the league in recent weeks.

56% of Crystal Palace's conceded league goals at home so far this season have occurred in the first half.

Crystal Palace have been losing at half time in 63% of the games when facing top half teams at home this season.
Crystal Palace have been losing at half time in 60% of the games when facing top 6 teams at Selhurst Park this season.

Manchester City

The Sky Blues are top of the table, 11 point clear of Manchester United (United with a game in hand though).
I can see Pep Guardiola wanting to kill this game off as early as possible, saving energy for the second leg in the Champions League semi-finals against PSG three days later.

Despite running away with the league title, there are no signs of Manchester City slowing down:
In the 4 most recent league games, Manchester City have created on average 7.00 shot on target per game - the second-best attacking numbers in the league in recent weeks.
In the 4 most recent league games, Manchester City have conceded on average 2.50 shot on target per game - the best defensive numbers in the league as of late.
All in all, Manchester City display the second-best shots on target difference in the league in recent weeks.
