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.
