Midweek league action resumes in the Premier League with two matches lined up for Tuesday evening. The Champions Manchester City will be away to Burnley while Crystal Palace plays host to AFC Bournemouth.
Below, we look at the betting previews for the two matches.
The Champions drooped yet more points over the weekend following a 2-2 draw with Newcastle United. Pep Guardiola’s team is not doing wee especially defensively, against Newcastle they lost the lead twice.
The injury to first-choice center-back Aymeric Laporte means that Fernandinho is playing a defender rather than a midfielder. Without him at the center of the pack, Manchester City lacks a shield to the defense and its showing in results.
They have not kept a clean sheet for the past six matches.
Meanwhile, Burnley lost in their last match at home to Crystal Palace and have won just two of their last five.
At home, Burley has an impressive record and has scored in three of their last five. Against a Manchester City side weak in defense, Burnley could find themselves with opportunities to find the net.
TIP: Both teams to score @1.82
Crystal Palace-AFC Bournemouth
Crystal Palace put up a very good showing in their 2-0 win away to Burnley over the weekend. Wilfred Zaha is in good form and has scored in his last two league assignments.
However, Palace is not in a good run of form and the win over Burnley was their first in five matches, a run that has seen them lose three and draw the other. Palace has also lost three in a row at home.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, has lost three in arow but showed great fighting spirit in the 3-2 loss to Spurs on Saturday.
TIP: Draw @3.40
