Manchester City will be in action against the next Premier League rivals, Crystal Palace, on Saturday.
The Citizens are currently leading the competition and will be looking to celebrate another win against the Eagles. The latters are 13th on the list.
Ahead of the clash, Michael Owen has given his prediction, backing Pep Guardiola’s side to secure a 2 – 0 win over the rivals.
“With the Premier League trophy in touching distance, Manchester City take aim once again as they travel to take on Crystal Palace,” the pundit said.
“Last week’s EFL Cup win was their first of a possible treble, so there is no way City will want to lose any momentum as they chase the remaining two trophies.
“For Palace, it’s pretty much job done. The Eagles went down 4-1 to Chelsea last week in what was a meagre performance. However, it’s no surprise to see that at this time of year. With such a huge contrast in both these sides ambitions, I can only see one winner. It’s 2-0 City for me.”
