With an impressive list fit for betting on a first goalscorer Manchester City is now fully focused on the Premier League race and the match against Fulham. Betfair lets you back up the Citizens to win and the value lies within how many goals they can score considering Fulham is on the last place on the table.
In the injury department both teams have notable absentees, though Man City could very well welcome back Jovetic and Nastasic, both most likely to return after knee injuries. Toure might sign up his name to score if he starts behind Dzeko and Negredo. Fulham’s newest signing Mitroglou still hasn’t recovered, while Dejagah received a groin injury and will not start against City. Karagounis is still set to undergo a test fitness to see if he’ll be able to handle the pace of such a match, that’s why the choice in strikers is not that big for the visitors.
City seems to be displaying a great conversion rate for goals coming from shoots on target, though the over/under betting market has rather low odds for them. The clean sheet market might not be a wise choice even though you can lay against it at 2.04. Last year when the Citizens traveled to Fulham they won with 4-2, a win which they have been repeating since 2009 when was the last time Fulham won against them with 3-1.
Even though Manchester City is out of all competitions but Premier League, betting against them would not be good. Fulham cannot and should not win against a team that has title hopes. A draw between the two teams can go for 9.8, but we are going to bet 8 units on David Silva as an anytime goalscorer at 2.32 with odds from Betfair.
