Man City need more than luck to get a win against Fulham
Manchester City face a really tough trip to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham, and the draw looks worth a wager at 3.75 withBetfred.
City are generally 1.83 chances and that would look a gift under normal circumstances.
However the defending champions have so far not looked at their best this season, and Roberto Mancini’s men have shipped 14 goals in seven games so far leading to the Italian admitting that “the defenders don’t work well at this moment”.
That has to be a worry given that Fulham are looking for a third straight win in the league and are the joint-top scorers in the top flight with 12 goals alongside Manchester United, and in my book makes City well worth opposing at odds-on.
However, Fulham have won none of the last six Premier League games against City (W0 D3 L3), and just one of the last 10 Premier League home games against the Citizens.
That suggest that they may well struggle to bag all three points, but I do think they are capable of sharing the spoils.
What I am expecting is plenty of goals, and this sets up two potentially decent punts in my eyes.
In the last 17 meetings between these two, there has been on just one occasion when both have failed to score so the 1.73 on offer with Betfred and Boylesports about both netting an outstanding bet.
Over 2.5 goals also makes plenty of appeal at 1.8 with Boylesports, and I am going to take a punt on 2-2 at a price of 15 with Betfred.
