Recent respective form guides

Manchester City will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. While Sky Blues have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Charlton Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. A generous 8 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Man City see themselves just below half way in the Barclaycard Premiership, showing a record of 21 points from their 19 games played so far, Charlton Ath. sit in a healthy 4th in the league, and have picked up 30 points from their 19 games.
