Fulham vs Manchester City

, KO: 12:30 May 11, 2024, Craven Cottage
Manchester City

MANCHESTER CITY have three games left to reclaim their title and they make the first of two trips to London in four days on Saturday when they face Fulham.

With Arsenal breathing down their necks, six points from their matches against Fulham and then Spurs are a necessity before they end their season with a home game against West Ham United.

Domestically, City are in imperillous form and their weekend 5-1 hammering of Wolves was their sixth league win in a row, although there's no doubt their season has been blotted by that Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.

They face a Fulham side who have won just one game in seven although they have drawn their past couple of matches against Crystal Palace and Brentford. They have no pressure on them though with a mid-table place a certainty.

But City should be wary here – on their day Fulham can beat anyone in West London – as Arsenal and Spurs have already discovered this season.

How the bookies view it: City a shoe-in

Manchester City were always going to be huge favourites here and 2/7 is the bst you can get for an away win with bet365. Fulham can be baced at 21/2 with UniBet and the draw is 11/2 with William Hill.

Recent head to heads: City going for 16 in a row

Manchester City love playing Fulham. They have won the last 15 encounters in all competitions including a 5-1 win at the Etihad this term. Fulham's last win at Craven Corrage over City was 19 years ago.

Players to watch: Haaland unstoppable

Erling Haaland destroyed Wolves at the weekend with a four-goal haul to answer critics about his play. The Norwegian has ‘only' scored 39 goals for club and country this season in 47 appearances. However, that was always going to mean his odds of netting in London would be short and 4/7 with bet365 is the best price you can get for him to score anytime.

Brazilian striker Rodrigo Muniz has enjoyed a fine season for Fulham and his recent goal against Crystal Palace put him into double figures for the season. He is 7/2 with Paddy Power to net.

Probable lineups

Both sides could be at full strength here, with Fulham boss Thomas Frank having a clean bill of health.
Manchester City's injury list also looks to have cleared in just the right time and Pep Guardiola could field another very strong line-up here

Fulham: Leno; Castagne, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Lukic; Iwobi, Pereira, Willian; Muniz.

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Akanji, Ake, Gvardiol; Rodri, Kovacic; Silva, De Bruyne, Foden; Haaland.

Anything else catch the eye: City could be good for goals

Funny things can happen at this time of the season with titles on the line and teams able to play with the handbrakes off with the pressure gone.

But it's very, very hard to see City slipping up or indeed anything other than an empatic away win with lots of gosl too.

They are at full strength now with no European distractions either so this should be a case of how many. City are 5/6 with Coral to score over 2.5 team goals and they should manage that.

A City win to nil at 6/4 also sppeals with Boylesports, as does the generous price of 5/6 for a City win half time and full time with the same firm.
