Manchester City vs Fulham Predictions: EPL Matchweek 15 Odds & Best Bets

The EPL champions welcome the London team to the Etihad stadium this weekend where they have been in strong form this season

Manchester City continues its push for the top spot on the table when they host Fulham this Saturday. City sits two points behind Arsenal for the top spot, while Fulham continues to impress this season, as they sit seventh on the table.

Fulham showed decent form to close out the month of October, riding on a four-game unbeaten streak. Marco Silva’s team will be looking to get back to scoring goals at a high clip after last weekend’s draw to Everton.

For the Sky Blues, a practically perfect free-kick by Kevin De Bruyne gave his side a 1-0 win against Leicester City in an otherwise subpar performance for MCFC. Pep Guardiola will need a far better performance at home to ensure City ends the weekend up three points.

Man City is being backed significantly by oddsmakers despite the clubs' recent form. It is hard to argue against this logic seeing as even when Guardiola’s side plays poorly, the English champions find a way.

Additionally, with Erling Haaland nearing his return to the pitch, you can expect goals to come far easier. If the 22-year-old striker proves fit for Saturday’s match, the Over may be a play worth looking into, seeing as Fulham concedes many goals.

Manchester City vs Fulham Prediction

Manchester City 3-1 Fulham

Fulham’s struggles on the road this season make it hard to predict a close game against the defending champions. In six away matches, the Lilywhites have managed to concede 11 goals and score only nine.

Harrison Reed has been impressive this season and you can expect him to be involved in a goal contribution in this match.

City will be looking to return to the high-powered attack it has shown earlier this season with three goals on its home field. MCFC’s +21 goal differential at the Etihad is quite the accomplishment and Guardiola’s players certainly play better for their home crowd. The Sky Blues have yet to see their team lose or draw at home in six EPL matches this season.

Manchester City vs Fulham Betting Tips

  • Fulham’s performance last week is the first time it has failed to score a goal since Matchweek 2.
  • Man City will look to extend its unbeaten streak to five across all competitions.
  • Guardiola says Haaland will “hopefully” be back for Saturday’s fixture.
  • The Sky Blues are currently averaging 4.5 goals at home in six matches.
  • Fulham is sixth in the league in goals for but fifth in goals against.
  • Aleksander Mitrović’s nine goals in 12 matches are good for third highest in the league.

WAGER: 2 Units

While Man City has been one of the best at not conceding goals at home, Fulham’s ability to create chances has been practically inevitable. Silva’s squad has managed to average 13.63 shots per match with a 1.69 goal average.

The pressure will fall on Fulham to score at least once in this match. City has conceded one goal in three of its last five matches and could very well do so against a strong Fulham attack.
