Manchester City host newly promoted Fulham in a Saturday afternoon clash that kicks off at 3:00pm local time. Whilst many would predict that this should be an easy home for the champions, it’s not hard to forget that this is the Premier League. The reason we love it is due to its unpredictability, and therefore Fulham could spring up a huge surprise, and be that dreaded coupon buster this weekend.

Home Team: Manchester City

manchester city fc betting footballIt may be an unfamiliar position for Manchester City, sitting in fourth place, as 12 months ago they first took command of first position in the league, and managed to maintain it until the end of the season. Just like last season, they had dropped two points in their opening three games of the season, but it didn’t derail them at all, as they then won 19 consecutive games in a row. It will be hard for Manchester City to replicate that sort of form this season, but they’ll want to get a secure win here, knowing that Tottenham or Liverpool would have dropped points in the earlier kick-off. Sergio Aguero has scored three goals this season, but they all came in the 6-1 drubbing of Huddersfield a few weeks ago. Fulham will be wary of how Aguero is lethal to the lesser quality teams in the division. Even with Kevin De Bruyne on the side lines for a lengthy amount of time, Pep Guardiola still has many options to choose from, and the likes of Sane are sometimes not even guaranteed a position on the bench. They defeated Newcastle 2-1 in their last match before the international break, and they will hope to pick up where there they left off.

Away Team: Fulham

fulham fc betting on footballIt’s been a fantastic 2018 for the Cottagers. The manager, Slaviša Jokanović, had transformed Fulham to the most in-form side in the Championship which led to their play-off victory against Aston Villa. In the Premier League, they are one of the sides which are going to face a tough test of staying in the league, but their recent away draw at Brighton, and thumping home win to Burnley, has given them much needed confidence they’ll need going through the rest of the season as they now sit in 13th position. Slaviša Jokanović can rely on his fellow countrymen and striker Aleksandar Mitrovic to get some goals, as he currently sits joint top of the top goal scorers list with four goals. Fulham’s season is not to be defined by this match on Saturday, but if they provide a stern test for Manchester City, they will gain more belief in the following weeks when they play the likes of Watford and Everton.

Head to Head (H2H)

Fulham’s form against Manchester City is not particular good, especially since 2010, as the two sides have faced each other 10 times in the league in that period, with it being a draw three times, seven wins for City, and none for Fulham. In fact, Manchester City are gunning for their 6th consecutive win against Fulham on Saturday. There used to be a time Fulham were indeed a bogey side to Manchester City, winning at the Etihad back to back in 2008 and 2009, and avoiding defeat in 2010, but have lost on all occasions since.

Manchester City vs Fulham Predictions and Betting Tips

Manchester City are dead certs with odds of 1/8, whereas Fulham are at 18/1. The unlikeliness of a draw is at 15/2. I expect Manchester City to labour to a 2 or 3 nil victory in this match, which are about 13/2 and 7/1 respecitevly. If you want to even boost the odds even more, bet on Sergio Aguero to score first, and the odds will be at least 13/1. If you think Fulham, may spring a surprise and get the first goal, then Aleksandar Mitrovic is your man, and he is 12/1 to get the first goal during this game. Fulham were recently involved in a 4-2 game against Burnley, and then a 2-2 draw with Brighton, so you’d think they will be some goals in this fixture too, given the opposition. If that’s the case, then you can get odds of over 5.5 goals at 10/3, which certainly looks tasty!
