Fulham vs Manchester City
|Date & Time||Saturday September 15, 2018, 10:00 AM (EDT)|
The Line: Man City -1000 / Draw +900 / Fulham +1600 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Manchester City will be in action this weekend as they play Fulham at home at the Etihad Stadium.
Fulham had a very poor start to the season as they have only managed to get 4 points from their opening 4 games. That being said, there have been definite improvements in the last 2 fixtures as they have managed to provide more scoring chances. Fulham would have been very disappointed with the draw in the last game as they managed to go 2 goals ahead only to concede twice and finish the match with a draw. This will be a much tougher match for Fulham as they are playing the current Premier League champions away from home.
On the other side of the coin, Manchester City enters this game needing to get all 3 points. Manchester City have already dropped points this season and with Liverpool playing a tough game this weekend, it will be a great chance for them to get back level with the Reds. City are still without Kevin De Bruyne who is out injured but that has not really impacted the team since the likes of David Silva and Bernardo Silva are doing exceptionally well at creating chances for Sergio Aguero. Manchester City has scored the most goals in the Premier League this season with their tally being at 11. With the home crowd strongly behind the team, I am expecting Manchester City to keep up their scoring record in this match.
This will be the first time these two teams will play each other in a considerable while since Fulham have been in the League Championship for the past few seasons.
All in all, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this match. Manchester City are the better side and are playing at home. This should be an easy win for Manchester City.
