When Fulham visit Manchester City on Saturday afternoon at the Etihad Stadium, the champions will want to maintain their undefeated start to the current Premier League campaign. Last weekend, the Citizens defeated Sheffield United 2-1 away from home, while the Cottagers admirably earned a point in their final Premier League match, a 2-2 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
Manchester City vs Fulham
Manchester City is attempting to make English history by becoming the first men’s team to win four straight championships, which would be yet another milestone achieved by Pep Guardiola. Since the start of the 2022–23 season, the Treble champions from the previous season have won 18 of their 20 league home games.
Rodri’s goal with a few minutes left in the game gave Man City the victory against Sheffield United in the third round despite significant difficulties and a missed penalty. Following their victory in the European Super Cup, England and Europe are currently champions. Currently, they are alone in first place with nine points, and the objective until the end of the season is obviously to maintain that position and demonstrate the quality that is beyond dispute.
In the last week, Fulham defeated two powerful London clubs with two outstanding victories. They first fought to a 2-2 draw at the Emirates against one of the top teams in England, Arsenal, and then, probably even more significantly, they defeated Tottenham in the 1/32 finals of the EFL Cup on penalties. Despite selling Mitrovic prior to the start of the season, Fulham seems to have a very strong and offensively focused team once more.
The Cottagers are currently on a 14-game losing skid versus City, having lost all six of their games against the top four teams from the previous season in 2022–23. Their last victory against the blue side of Manchester came in 2009, when Mark Hughes managed the opposition.
In the last ten years at this stadium, the Citizens have easily defeated Fulham. Given that Manchester City prefers this style of play, the aggressive game may seek retribution against the Manchester-based team. In this first round, the host team did not score a lot of goals, allowing the guild to pay the London club. We anticipate goals, perhaps even on both sides, but Haaland and the other players should determine the victor with three or four goals scored into the opponent’s net.
We must hunt for a harder market because the probabilities for the typical over 2.5 are now too low to take into account. At the Etihad, it is challenging to predict a goal against City, but Fulham appears to be scoring in each and every game they play. Additionally, Manchester City appears to be less strong defensively this year, which is likely to have an impact on this game as well. Three of their most recent meetings resulted in BTTS.
