Betting: Get a massive 7/2 on Manchester City to thrash Crystal Palace

The Eagles are pointless and goalless after five Premier League matches, and Pep Guardiola's side are set to pile on fresh misery on Saturday

It's top against bottom in the Premier League on Saturday and there should be plenty of goals when Manchester City welcome Crystal Palace to the Etihad Stadium.

City, who are level on points and goal difference with rivals Manchester United, are only top of the league on alphabetical order and will want to defend their position on top of the pile.

With Palace rock bottom and yet to even score a goal after five matches of the new campaign, this should be a great opportunity for Pep Guardiola's side to rack up a few goals.

Manchester City to beat Crystal Palace with over 4.5 goals scored, boosted from 3/1 (4.0) up to 7/2 (4.50) by dabblebet, is therefore a great option for this weekend's action.

Palace recorded their first win under the leadership of new boss Roy Hodgson against Huddersfield Town in the EFL Cup in midweek, but there is much work to do if the Eagles are to claw back the four points they already sit adrift of safety.

Hodgson will focus primarily on fixing a leaky Palace defence that has conceded eight goals already this season, but stopping the likes of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus will be easier said than done.

The duo are likely to play up front together for this game and Aguero tops the Premier League scoring charts after scoring a hat-trick against Watford last time out, while Jesus has scored a goal on average every 89 minutes in the league since joining City.

City have also beaten Palace in nine of the last 10 meetings between the sides, including the last four in a row, so the head-to-head record points to this being a comfortable home win.

Although West Brom were able to hold City to only a 2-1 victory in the EFL Cup on Wednesday, Guardiola's men have found goals easy to come by so far this season.

They put five past Liverpool - although the Reds were down to 10 men after Sadio Mane's contentious red card - before battering Feyenoord 4-0 and thrashing Watford by six.

Palace will surely be unable to stop them racking up another big score at the Etihad on Saturday and City to beat Palace with over 4.5 goals scored, which has been price boosted from 3/1 (4.0) up to 7/2 (4.50) by dabblebet, is a top selection.
