Match Date: 22 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Etihad Stadium

 

Trailing Chelsea by 6 points and with 10 matches to spare, the possibility for Manchester City to snatch the coveted silverware is still, very evident.

 

The Citizens may have experienced some setbacks for quite a while, but these failures turned out to be blessing in disguise. The shocking defeat to Wigan in the FA Cup and the exit in the Champions League’s Round of 16, left the club with no other recourse but to focus on their Premier League campaign.

 
A taste of City’s strength and determination can be readily seen in their encounter against Hull City. Despite losing their team captain, Vincent Kompany, they were able to snatch a crucial 2-0 victory that brought them back to the title race.

 

However, if there is anything, which will readily highlight the club’s ability, this is their top-notch form. Manchester City has won 4 of its last 6 matches, where it also kept 3 clean sheets. In 4 of their victorious matches, the Citizens have also managed to limit the number of goals scored to under 2.5.

 

Given this aspect at hand, it is only but fitting for Fulham to carefully consider their options and strategies when they face the evident favorite of online bookies.

 

Speaking of Fulham, it is Manchester City’s next opponent. Unfortunately, for Fulham, it is at the bottom of the Premier League table. It has only managed to accumulate 24 points within the season and has only won once in their last 6 matches.

 

The club has also conceded an average of 2 goals in their last 5 encounters and is winless in their last 6 away battles.

 

Prediction:  Manchester City

With the way they perform, they become the automatic favorite of the match. Against the minnow, Fulham, they are potted to win at 2.01 at 12BET. Going for under 3.5 at 1.87 is also a sound decision for any sports betting enthusiast.
