What Trueform says for Fulham vs Man City
Manchester City can go back to the top of the Premier League table, even if only briefly, by brushing aside Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The Blues have posted six straight wins in this competition, while the Cottagers have suffered seven consecutive defeats over the past couple of months.
Home fans do usually get a consolation goal to cheer, though, with Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool all conceding once here.
That makes 6/5 for an away win and both teams to score a good option for our initial Fulham vs Man City prediction.
A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds
Ryan Babel took advantage of a defensive mix-up to net against his former club when Liverpool visited Fulham before the international break, but the Reds still managed to prevail 2-1.
Caretaker boss Scott Parker became the first Cottagers manager to lose his first three Premier League games in over decade, but he refused to be too downbeat.
“The back end of the game, we came strong and caused Liverpool some problems,” declared the former midfielder.
“It was pleasing. We have lost but have some positives to take from the game. These players are working to a maximum, with attitude and passion.”
Parker has had a tough start, with Chelsea winning at Craven Cottage by the same scoreline before a 3-1 loss at Leicester, but things are unlikely to get any easier here.
Looking at the Fulham vs Man City odds, we like 11/4 for the visitors to oblige 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the multiple correct score market.
Last Fulham line-up: Rico, Chambers, Ream, Fosu-Mensah, Bryan, Cairney, Jean Seri, Zambo, Mitrovic, Ayite, Babel.
American defender Tim Ream and Ivory Coast midfielder Jean Michael Seri have missed the majority of training for Fulham this week due to the international break and will now be assessed. Defender Alfie Mawson is still sidelined with a knee injury.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Manchester City had to survive an almighty scare at Swansea in the FA Cup quarter-finals to keep their quadruple hopes alive, coming from 2-0 down with 20 minutes left to win 3-2.
The Blues did enjoy some good fortune, via a contentious penalty decision and a dubious offside ruling, but once again displayed tremendous hunger and desire to keep battling on all four fronts.
“Fighting for everything is the most important thing for the club,” said Pep Guardiola.
“The new players and managers who are coming, they will learn from this group of players, that we never give up and fight for every single game and title until the end.”
That match followed a 7-0 thrashing of Schalke in the Champions League, so City are still capable of punishing poor defences.
It may take a little time to get back into rhythm after the international break, but the visitors should wear down Fulham.
We’re finishing off our Fulham vs Man City betting tips by taking 23/20 for an away goal to be scored between 30:01 minutes and half-time.
Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Walker, Laporte, Otamendi, Gundogan, Delph, B Silva, D Silva, Mahrez, Sane, Jesus.
City have close to a fully-fit squad. Midfielders Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho, plus defenders Vincent Kompany and Benjamin Mendy are back in training, while centre-backs Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones have overcome knocks.
Utility player Fabian Delph is still out and reserve goalkeeper Claudio Bravo (Achilles) is a long-term absentee.
FULHAM 1-2 Liverpool – Ryan Babel
Swansea 2-3 MAN CITY – Bernardo Silva, Kristoffer Nordfeldt (og), Sergio Aguero
Head-to-head: Man City 2-0 Fulham, Man City 3-0 Fulham
