Crystal Palace vs Manchester City FA Cup – Fourth Round Date: Saturday, 28 January 2017 Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET Venue: Selhurst Park.
Crystal will have to put in more effort in this 4th round of the FA Cup against Guardiola’s Manchester City to avoid exiting the competition.
Crystal Palace are on a very poor form, they have managed just 2 games in their last 18 games in all competitions. They narrowly defeated Bolton in the second leg of FA Cup 3rd round to get to this stage.
Sam Allardyce’s men are struggle to remain in the top flight as they are in the relegation zone. However an FA Cup fixture this weekend gives the fans some glimpse of hope.
Meanwhile, Guadiola have no really been enjoying his time at Etihad Stadium, as his team is currently occupying the 5th spot. The fans may be expecting more than they have seen, also the Spanish manager is not used to playing as the catch up team. However their superb display against Spurs last week in their 2-2 draw shows they are still title contenders.
