A streak of seven consecutive Premier League losses pushed Fulham into second division. They can still theoretically save the top flight status, but need a miracle for such accomplishment for such accomplishment with 13 points between them and the safe zone and just seven games left to play. To make things worse for the Cottagers, they are up against defending champions Manchester City in the first fixture of Saturday’s program.
The visitors need points to stay on top of Liverpool in the battle for silverware. They are two points short of the Reds at the top of the standings, but have a game in hand. Pep Guardiola’s machinery has been in fabulous form lately. They won 11 straight outings across competitions. They notched 13 goals in last three wins over Watford, Schalke and Swansea City and will come into this in the highest of spirits.
Fulham vs Manchester City: Head-to-head
The head to head record also suggests a one-way street for the visitors on Saturday at Craven Cottage.
Manchester City won seven on the trot against Fulham bagging at least two goals in all games in the process.
The Citizens won each of last five head to head games with the Cottagers by at least two goals difference.
Man City have a goal difference of 10-0 in last three meetings with Fulham.
Fulham vs Manchester City: Prediction
The deadliest attacking line will meet a side with the weakest defensive record in the entire league on Saturday. The hosts allowed 70 goals in 31 league affairs so far and we just can’t imagine them holding Guardiola’s machinery down here.
The visitors can’t afford a failure against such opposition and we can’t expect anything else but Man City dominating the pitch from the very first minute to the end. You can back Manchester City to win by at least three goals difference at the odds of 2.05, while punters who prefer somewhat safer options can go with the Citizens to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at 1.50 odds.
