Manchester City News and Form
The Citizens have produced a W3 D1 record for the new season, a season of a Premier League title defence for them. The only ones to have stopped them winning this season was Wolves in a duel at Molineux towards the end of August. But City snapped back with a 2-1 home win over Newcastle after that. It leaves them with a perfect record from two games at home this season, scoring eight goals in the process. They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last three games played which is a surprise But knowing the scoring power that they have in them, and knowing that Fulham play an open game, over 3.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on September 13th, 2018 at 6:58 am).
While Sergio Aguero is their top scorer with three goals this season, all three of those came in one game. That was in a home game though. He is still the 11/5 first goalscorer favorite for this fixture on the weekend* (betting odds taken on September 13th, 2018 at 6:58 am). Raheem Sterling could miss after getting a knock while on recent international duty. Man City have won 32 of their last 38 Premier League games and there have been over 2.5 goals in 18 of their last 20 league fixtures at the Etihad.

Aleksandar Mitrovic has come up big for them in front of goal this season and he is at 10/3 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on September 13th, 2018 at 6:58 am).
