Crystal Palace vs Manchester City, Monday 8pm, live on Sky Sports

Selhurst Park on a Monday night is never an ideal scenario for an away team - even one as special as Manchester City.

And then you throw into the mix that Palace are the last team to keep a Premier League clean sheet against City, who have scored in all 18 league games since that 2-0 win for Patrick Vieira's team at the Etihad Stadium, then this could be a tricky evening for the league leaders.

However, City are unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League away games, winning 11 of those. They could equal a club Premier League record of 14 successive away games unbeaten here. I wouldn't want to be lashing into the 2/7 for an away win but those looking to get City on side should maybe take a look at the 5/2 with Sky Bet on Pep Guardiola's side winning by one goal.

That winning goal just might come from a set-piece. Palace have conceded 10 of their 38 Premier League goals this season from corners. Plus, an opposition centre-back has managed a shot on goal against Palace in seven of their last eight fixtures with two goals conceded from corners in that period.

City play silky football but they are among the best at creating opportunities from set-pieces. Only Liverpool (20) have scored more from that method this season than City (19).

It all adds up to Aymeric Laporte being a great angle to attack across a variety of markets, the standout being him to have a header on target at 10/1 with Sky Bet. Only Shane Duffy averages more shots on goal when it comes to centre-backs to have played 500 minutes or more than Laporte (1.34) this season. Considering 10 of those efforts have been headers, his odds are too big to register a header on target.
