Venue: Craven Cottage (London).

Manchester City confirmed their class once again on Wednesday evening when they demolished direct title rivals Arsenal in a 4-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola’s men are now just two points shy of the Gunners atop the Premier League standings with a couple of games in hand on Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Kevin De Bruyne stepped up with a staggering display that saw him bag a brace and deliver an assist for John Stones’ header, while the league’s top scorer Erlind Haaland contributed with two assists and a goal himself in midweek.

Manchester City now have 12 wins and a draw in the previous 13 games across competitions and they will be huge favorites to prolong this scintillating run of form on Sunday afternoon.

The Citizens travel to the capital to take on mid-table Fulham in what should be a one-way street from the start to the end.

The Cottagers lost six of the previous eight Premier League outings and they are really struggling to get things going offensively without the suspended striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Marco Silva’s men were completely toothless in the final third in the 1-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa in Gameweek 33 on Tuesday night.

They are leaky at the back at the same time, conceding at least a goal in each of the previous eight Premier League outings.

Fulham vs Manchester City Head-to-head

  • On top of form, Fulham will play against tradition as they have lost twelve consecutive games against the Citizens.
  • Fulham did keep things tight in the reverse game in November last year when they lost just 2-1 at the Etihad, but they had previously suffered three losses by at least three goals difference in four games against Man City.
  • Manchester City have bagged two or more goals in 13 consecutive games against the Cottagers.

Fulham vs Manchester City Prediction

The gap in quality between these rivals is enormous and we expect the two-time defending champions to easily cruise to a comfortable victory in the capital.

The main pick is Man City to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 1.80 odds, while we will also take the 2.87 odds for Erling Haaland to score the first goal of the game on Sunday.
