Manchester City can return to the top of the Premier League table if they continue their winning form at struggling Fulham on Saturday.

bet365 Pre-Match Odds: Fulham 16/1, Draw 13/2, Man City 1/7

 

MATCH PREVIEW

 

The Cottagers have lost seven in a row and sit 13 points from safety, with just seven games left to play this season.

 

Indeed, should they lose to City and follow that up with a loss at Watford on Tuesday, relegation back to the Championship could be confirmed.

 

Scott Parker hasn’t been able to steady the ship since taking the reins last month and they still remain weak at the back.

 

Their goal difference is -41, the poorest in the top four divisions, and it’s likely to get even worse this weekend when they host the highest scorers in the Premier League.

 

Forward Andre Schurrle could return to the fold for the first time in five matches after recovering from a virus.

 

Tim Ream and Jean Michael Serri are set to be assessed after long journeys during the international break, while Alfie Mawson is still on the sidelines.

 

The Citizens, who sit two points behind leaders Liverpool, can return to the summit ahead of their rivals playing on Sunday.

 

Pep Guardiola’s men were in fantastic form prior to the international break, winning 11 in a row across all competitions, and the Spaniard will hope they can continue that momentum.

 

Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, John Stones, Benjamin Mendy, Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi have returned to training over the last week and could all be involved.

 

 

Utility man Fabian Delph and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo are City’s only injured players. City have won the past six league matches against Fulham, scoring 10 goals without reply in their last three meetings.

 

BETTING ADVICE

 

It’s all to play for both at the foot and the top of the Premier League table when Fulham host reigning champions Manchester City at Craven Cottage. 

 

Manchester City have the chance to reclaim their place at the top of the Premier League when they take on a struggling Fulham side this Saturday. 

 

Pep Guardiola’s men may be two points behind Liverpool however, they have played a game less than the Reds. 

 

City couldn’t be heading into this game with better form. Six straight league wins and 11 consecutive victories in all competitions shows just how big of a challenge this game will be for Fulham. 

 

Speaking of the Lilywhites, Scott Parker’s side have lost seven straight Premier League games albeit, they have played against such teams as Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.

 

Fulham are winless against the Citizens in 13 straight encounters and haven’t scored against them since 2013. 

 

Bearing all that in mind, the recommendation in this game is to back a Raheem Sterling goal and a Manchester City victory at 10/11. 

 

Sterling has been unstoppable on his last two England starts, scoring four goals and creating one assist. The City player is certainly more than capable of replicating that form on the Premier League stage. 

 

Recommendation
Man City to win and Raheem Sterling to score – 10/11 PaddyPower

    Fulham 0-2 Manchester City

    Date published: 3/30/2019 2:35:59 PM

    Manchester City made it seven Premier League victories in a row with a comfortable 2-0 win at Championship-bound Fulham.

    Pep Guardiola’s team return to the top of the table as a result of their latest victory, while the Cottagers have now lost eight consecutive matches and conceded at least two goals in each of them.
    In a one-sided encounter, Guardiola’s men only needed five minutes to break the deadlock, Bernardo Silva firing a low effort past Sergio Rico. Ilkay Gundogan then saw his shot kept out by Rico before Kevin De Bruyne went close to doubling City’s lead.
    The second goal duly arrived in the 27th minute when Joe Bryan was dispossessed and Bernardo Silva took full advantage, playing in Sergio Aguero whose rising shot was too good for Rico.
    City had penalty appeals waved away when Raheem Sterling went down under Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s challenge and on the stroke of half-time Gundogan flashed a shot narrowly wide.
    After a low-key opening to the second period, Rico saved Sterling’s curling shot on the hour mark before Fosu-Mensah blocked Bernardo Silva’s strike.
    Kyle Walker’s fierce drive hit the outside of a post after he had been set up by his England team-mate Sterling, who curled a late effort high and wide, while Fulham were unable to create any clear-cut openings even though City barely moved out of second gear after the interval.
    The second half was very dull, with Scott Parker’s team seemingly content to settle for damage limitation as City saved their energy levels for tougher tests to come.
