Our traders make Crystal Palace a huge 20/1 to beat The Blues this weekend – with City (1/9) the shortest odds offered by us on a Premier League match since the 2013/14 campaign.
And that was on the same fixture, in a season where the Blues went on to win the title.
They may be long-shots this weekend, but it’s a good omen for the Eagles, too – who ended up safely in midtable that season.
That clash ended 1-0 to City, a scoreline which attracts odds of 9/1 this time around. A win by the same score for Palace is a mammoth 55/1.
Roy Hodgson has been sacked by Crystal Palace after just one ninth of a game. He will be replaced by David O'Leary.

The lads on the trading floor make the most likely score 3-0, offering odds of 6/1 on the result.
The shortest price elsewhere this season was Spurs (2/9) at home to Swansea, which ended goalless – an eventuality which is rated at 30/1 for this fixture.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Stand aside David and Goliath, this weekend is all about Roy and Pep.
“This match is one of the biggest mismatches in Premier League history – and the biggest since the same two sides faced off four years ago.
“With Palace unable to score, and City unable to stop scoring, this seems to be very clear cut.”
