Manchester City remain in the hunt for the league title with a two-point deficit to Liverpool but with a game in hand. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Fulham lost for a seventh consecutive match after being beaten 2-1 by Liverpool at Craven Cottage. Scott Parker’s men produced an improved performance once again but they made defensive errors to let Klopp’s team secure a win.
Manchester City were able to register a 11 consecutive win in all competitions after beating Swansea City 3-2 in the FA Cup quarter-finals. City have been able to book the FA Cup semi-final place against Brighton with this relatively tight victory.
The reverse fixture between Manchester City and Fulham produced a 3-0 victory for the blues at the Etihad Stadium. The last game between these two teams at Craven Cottage was in 2013 when City picked up a 4-2 victory. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Manchester City.

Fulham are increasingly looking likely for relegation with Scott Parker’s men witnessing a huge gulf in points between the teams in the bottom three and the teams chasing safety. Manchester City will not be in a mood to drop points in this potential banana skin, as they may be able to capitalise on the narrow play adopted by Fulham. Liverpool profited from the narrow set up of Fulham in the recent league encounter and this will once again favour City. Our preview would opt for a City win.

Fulham vs Manchester City draw odds: 7.50
Fulham win odds: 17.00
Correct Score odds
Manchester City have been able to put 10 goals past Fulham without any reply and the last goals scored by the Cottagers against City was more than five years ago. Even though City conceded two goals against Swansea in the recent FA Cup meeting, the Londoners are likely to be deflated coming into the game. Our correct score prediction would go with a 3-0 win for City.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Manchester City have been the goal scoring leaders in the Premier League this season with a remarkable 79 goals already. Even though the team may not be able to break records on this front, they have been able to score goals with great consistency. Fulham’s defence has improved but they are still far away from shutting off teams like City. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero has been able to get 18 goals in the league this season. There have also been goals in other competitions from the Argentine, who has been able to get three goals and an assist in his last two appearances. Aguero has been able to get four goals in just five league matches against Fulham and our first goalscorer prediction would back the 30-year-old.
