Fulham vs Man City – City should be weary of former manager

| 21.11.2010

Mark Hughes will be hoping to increase the pressure on his opposite number when his Fulham side line-up against his former Manchester City side on Sunday.

Roberto Mancini’s side have drawn their last two games 0-0, and a repeat of that scoreline, priced at 8/1, would see the calls for Mancini to resign get louder.

Match Odds

Despite the pressure mounting on Mancini’s shoulders, history suggests this Fulham don’t have a shot in this fixture, the home side has won none of the last seven meetings between the two.

Man City are 7/5 to beat Fulham and ease the pressure on Mancini.

Fulham have only managed one win over Man City in eight home Premier League games between the two, but of the other seven ties, four of those were drawn and the draw is priced at 9/4.

Fulham were last season’s draw specialists and they’ve continued in the same vein this season with eight draws from their 13 games including three from their six home games.

Total Goals

Carlos Tevez starts for Man City after recovering from a dead leg but the Argentine striker is goalless in his last four games.

Moussa Dembele misses out for Fulham but top scorer Clint Dempsey has three goals in his last two league starts against Man City and the American is 5/2 to score any time.

All of the last ten Premier League games between the two have seen three goals or more and over 2.5 goals offers great value at 6/5.

Fulham have conceded 62% of their goals this season in the first half, and Man City are 2/1 to win the first half but are also 8/1 to be leading at half time and not win.

Mark Hughes’ side are 7/1 to come from behind and draw and a 2-2 draw is priced at 14/1.

A £10 stake on a 2-2 draw at 14/1 would return £150. See the full Fulham vs Manchester City betting odds here.
