Manchester City are preparing to host Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday, January 17. Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

“Manchester City have got a run of league fixtures coming up where in normal circumstances you would expect them to win all of them – after this game they play Aston Villa (h), West Brom (a), Sheffield United (h) and Burnley (a).

“But their games are coming thick and fast and, somewhere along the line, City are going to drop points. Everyone else has been doing it, so it doesn’t matter very much – my point is that we are not going to see a runaway winner of the Premier League this season.

“Of course, in isolation, I am going to back City to win this game. They ended up hanging on against Brighton in midweek but they still got the job done.

“You know how Palace will set up, and they will be very well organised. I still expect City to find a way through.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 3-0
