All the best odds from Paddy Power ahead of City's Premier League clash with Fulham...
After a couple of weekends away from the league campaign due to cup commitments, City returned to the title trail with a win away to Hull last Saturday and they’ll be hoping to build on that with another victory this weekend.
City to win and -2 on the handicap
Fulham come to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday for a game which will have repercussions at both ends of the table.
Paddy Power, official bookmaker of Manchester City, make the hosts the overwhelming favourites to win.
The Blues' record over the Cottagers lends support to the idea that three points are well within reach.
The Citizens have won their last four games against Fulham and are unbeaten in their last 10 against Saturday’s visitors - racking up seven wins and three draws over that run of games.City’s last five wins over the Cottagers have been by two goals or more.
At home in the league so far this season, nine of City’s 12 wins have come by two goals or more. On average, their home wins have come with a winning margin ever so slightly less than three goals.
Correct Score Markets
Felix Magath’s side have comfortably the worst defensive record of all the teams in the league and they’ll be hard pressed to keep City’s attack at bay, particularly in view of the four goals they conceded when City visited the Cottage earlier this season.
There’s no shortage of options to look out for in the goalscorer betting.
No less than nine of the current City squad have notched at least one goal against Fulham while wearing the Sky Blue shirt.
The name that stands out from the others belongs to Sergio Aguero. He’s managed four goals from three starts against the Cottagers and he’s 11/5 to be First Goalscorer this time around and 5/1 to score at hat-trick.
Behind him, there are plenty of other options who have enjoyed previous success against Fulham.
Edin Dzeko has been the Last Goalscorer in two of the last four meetings between the sides and he’s 3/1 to do it again this time around.
The last time Fulham visited the Etihad, they were dispatched by a brace from David Silva.
