Manchester City vs Fulham Tips and Prediction
Following a thrilling Kevin De Bruyne free kick that gave Man City a narrow 1-0 victory away at Leicester City the previous weekend, Man City finished their Champions League group stage campaign with triumph against Sevilla at home on Wednesday.
Rafa Mir gave the visitors the lead before halftime in what was a dead rubber match for the Citizens, who had already advanced to the round of 16 as Group A champions. However, Rico Lewis, 17, tied the score on his full Champions League debut, breaking the previous mark, before Julian Alvarez and Riyad Mahrez completed the comeback to keep the Sky Blues unbeaten in this season’s competition.
In fact, before the World Cup break, City will play four straight games at the Etihad, starting with a match against Fulham on Saturday, followed by a meeting against Chelsea in the third round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday, and a match against Brentford in the Premier League.
With the exception of one game, Guardiola’s team has amassed a remarkable 14-game winning streak at home in all competitions. They have also gone unbeaten in their last 18 games at the Etihad Stadium since suffering a loss to Tottenham Hotspur in February.
This season, City has already defeated Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest at home with a total of 10 goals, and they will be expecting further success this weekend against Fulham.
The Citizens have defeated the Cottagers in each of their last 12 encounters across all competitions, and a victory this weekend would temporarily catapult Guardiola’s team to the top of the Premier League before league leaders Arsenal visit Chelsea on Sunday.
Last Saturday, Fulham was unable to win their third straight Premier League game as they were forced to play Everton to a scoreless draw at home.
Only six of the Cottagers’ 24 efforts were on goal, and head coach Marco Silva was left regretting a number of lost chances to defeat a tenacious Toffees team who had an excellent Jordan Pickford in goal to thank.
Nevertheless, Fulham supporters will be happy to see their team in seventh place in the Premier League standings, eight points above the relegation zone and ahead of teams like Liverpool, West Ham United, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Leicester City, who all finished the previous season in the top half. Fulham won the Championship last season.
The West Londoners have failed to score in their last five Premier League encounters with Man City, and they have won just two of their 15 away games against the reigning champions in the division, though they did manage a victory in their most recent such match against Liverpool in March 2021.
Additionally, Fulham has won three of its four Premier League games against Man City at the Etihad, most recently a victory in April 2009, which is encouraging for Silva and company going into Saturday’s match.
Man City has had trouble scoring goals at the Etihad Stadium so far this season, and even if Haaland is unable to play, the Citizens still have an attacking threat that can get past Fulham’s defense.
After scoring against Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs, and Newcastle United this season, the Cottagers will be confident in their chances in the final third, but we anticipate the hosts to outscore their opponents and earn their 10th league victory of the year.
