Fulham: Decent Season

The positives have outweighed the negatives for Fulham in the past couple of weeks, but an eight-game run without a clean sheet is not a positive statistic before tackling the reigning champs and the most in-form team in the Premier League, Man City.

The hosts will go into the game looking to pull off the upset, although their opponents are heavy favorites to come out on top. The Cottagers, who are in mid-table, are one of the teams looking to grab a European spot, although they are eight points away from Tottenham, sitting fifth.

Fulham’s late surge for an unlikely top-seven Premier League finish, and a miraculous European qualification that goes with it, was gathering momentum with consecutive league wins, but a narrow 1-0 loss to Aston Villa in midweek has all but stifled those dreams. A top-half finish will most likely be the goal for Marco Silva’s team, a fine achievement considering its last three top-flight campaigns have ended in relegation.

Currently sitting on the brink in tenth place, the Cottagers might need to play smarter and not harder if they’re to at least stand their ground, but if you’re betting online, you should fade them here given the Citizens’ run of form. Marco Silva admitted his players were not at their best level and lacked aggressiveness in their defeat against Aston Villa and should play smarter against City.

Man City: Scoring Goals for Fun

Manchester City landed a key blow in the English Premier League title race after the defending champion secured a 4-1 win against current leader Arsenal. The Citizens took control of the game from the start and went ahead after just seven minutes through a brilliant Kevin De Bruyne goal from outside the box.

De Bruyne added a third in the second half and, although Rob Holding reduced the deficit, Erling Haaland completed City’s comprehensive win as he scored his 33rd Premier League goal of the season in stoppage time. The win puts Manchester City just two points behind the Gunners, with Pep Guardiola’s team having two games in hand.

City has won its last seven Premier League games, and Pep Guardiola touched on the mindset his side have had throughout its dominant run. City faces Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinals over two legs on May 9 and 17. It is the favorite to win three competitions this season, including the FA Cup, as it will play United in the first-ever Manchester derby at this stage of the knockouts. We will continue to include the club in our Premier League picks and parlays.

Fulham vs Man City Head-to-Head

None of Fulham’s last nine matches across all competitions ended in a draw, while six were defeats. Craven Cottage could therefore be dreading the arrival of title-chasing Manchester City, whom they’ve failed to beat in their last ten home games, losing seven in the process.

City’s striker Erling Haaland scored his 33rd league goal this season against Arsenal, breaking the record for the most EPL goals in a 38-game campaign. City has only lost one of its last 54 league games when scoring first and scored 28 goals in 15 away games this term. The reigning champs managed to win their last 13 games across all competitions against Fulham.

Fulham vs Man City Picks & Prediction

The Citizens enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -400 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Premier League odds, while the goal line is set at three.

The difference in quality between the two sides is huge. The Citizens are in the best form of the season exactly when it counts: before the most important games and after destroying leader Arsenal in the midweek fixture. The club will definitely be eager to keep the momentum going with another win. We might see some changes in the starting lineup, but City’s bench players are way better than Fulham’s starters. We expect a comfortable away win, with Pep Guardiola and his troops having the necessary weapons to cover the spread.
