Tip Reasoning

  • Fulham have scored in five of their last six Premier League matches.
  • Manchester City have only kept three clean sheets in their nine top flight games this season.
  • Fulham have conceded three or more goals on four occasions this term.

Citizens look to jumpstart their season

Manchester City sealed their position at the top of Champions League Group C with a game to spare in midweek, but now their attention turns back to their somewhat faltering Premier League campaign.

Pep Guardiola’s side find themselves all the way down in 11th position after winning just four of their opening nine games, but after thrashing Burnley 5-0 last week we’re predicting the Citizens to clinch back-to-back league wins for the first time this season on Saturday.

Improving Fulham carry goal threat

Fulham came into the top flight as one of the pre-season favourites for relegation, and ten games into the 2020/21 campaign and not much as changed. The Cottagers, despite winning at Leicester on Monday, find themselves 17th in the table and just a point above the drop zone, although there have been signs of improvement recently.

That win at the King Power Stadium was impressive and, while they were catastrophic at the back, their attacking play in their 3-2 loss against Everton deserves some merit.

Goals at both ends expected

In fact, Fulham have scored in five of their last six Premier League matches and have notched twice in three of those games. They face a Manchester City side with only three clean sheets in nine league games this season, so backing both teams to score is our preference at the Etihad.

We are expecting the hosts to get the three points, however. They were rampant against the dismal Burnley last weekend and Fulham’s back-line is in serious need of attention. They have conceded three or more goals on four occasions this term, so a 3-1 correct score prediction is our choice.

Manchester City team news and injuries

Sergio Aguero is Pep Guardiola’s only injury concern, with the Argentine listed as a major doubt and unlikely to be risked on Saturday.

Kevin De Bruyne, Kyle Walker, Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez were all rested in midweek and will return to the starting lineup here, with Jesus leading the line in Aguero’s absence.

Fulham team news and injuries

Fulham’s injury list remains unchanged with Terence Kongolo and Kenny Tete both sitting on the sidelines.

Scott Parker could name an unchanged starting lineup after their shock win over Leicester on Monday.
