Manchester City are at Etihad Stadium for a match against Fulham this weekend. The defending champions have already dropped points even with the season only four games old, but they are not at a huge disadvantage compared with the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool. Fulham may sit in the 13th place but the team has performed much better than their league position suggests. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Fulham are given an incredible price of 17.00 to win the game. However, Manchester City are overwhelming favourites to get a victory even at a very short price. Fulham are more than capable of troubling City with players like Aleksandar Mitrovic, but Guardiola’s team always find a way against teams from the lower end of the table – especially at home. The hosts may rotate a couple of key players and it may work in their favour by providing an element of unpredictability. If City are able to keep Fulham at bay, they stand a chance to get a comfortable win.

Fulham win odds: 17.00
Correct Score odds
City were able to score 9 goals in their last two meetings with Fulham, but there is little chance of a repeat considering that this Fulham team is much improved compared with their past outfits. Even then, there is a strong likelihood of City being able to overpower the opponents with goals. Fulham will not come in with a complete defensive setup like Newcastle and they have a possibility of getting a few goals. Our correct score prediction would back a Manchester City 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The match witnesses two teams capable of scoring and this is especially true in the case of City, who are one of the most potent teams in the division. Fulham are not expected to sit back and defend. This makes our total goals prediction go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero is the top scorer at City with three league goals, but all of his goals have come in the win over Huddersfield. Raheem Sterling has been better at disguising himself under Aguero’s shadow to pick up the opening goal in two out of his last three appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Raheem Sterling.
