Fulham - Manchester City Betting Preview: Rampant City to score at least three goals

With the Cottagers in desperate need of points they welcome Manuel Pellegrini's side to Craven Cottage and our tipster is backing goals from the visitors
Rene Meulensteen has struggled to make a impact at Fulham so far with the South Londoners continuing to struggle for results since Martin Jol was sacked. They welcome Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend who are on a fantastic run of form.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have won seven of their last eight matches and sit in fourth position in the league. bet365 price them at 1/3 (1.33) to continue their fine form.

Since Meulensteen took the reigns for Fulham, he's seen his side beaten at home to Tottenham and away to Everton.

However, sandwiched in-between those results his side picked up a valuable three points at home to Aston Villa.

bet365 don't give them much hope in this fixture though, pricing them at 8/1 (9.00). The same firm prices the draw at 4/1 (5.00).

City did struggle away from home at the start of the season, but have improved on the road, staying unbeaten in four matches, beating West Brom, Bayern Munich and Leicester City. However, despite these results, they are still too skinny to back at 1/3 (1.33).

With Sergio Aguero out injured for City, Edin Dzeko will try and fill his goal scoring boots. The Bosnia international netted twice midweek and is 8/11 (1.73) to score anytime.

A bet that has stood out for City this season has been over 2.5 team goals, which has paid out in seven of their last eight matches. With bet365 pricing this at even money (2.00) it's certainly worth taking advantage of once again. It's also worth noting City have netted 29 goals in their last eight games.
