The best odds from Paddy Power ahead of City's trip to Craven Cottage...
Manchester City are unbeaten in their last five league visits to Fulham and are 4/11 to collect all three points at Craven Cottage on Saturday (3pm).
Manuel Pellegrini’s side ran out comfortable 3-1 winners at Leicester in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night and are 9/1 with Paddy Power to win by the same score against the Cottagers who beat Aston Villa 2-0 in the their last home game.
City are on fire in front of goal and their latest win, coupled with the 6-3 demolition of Arsenal last Saturday, means they’ve scored 75 goals in all competitions from 25 games this season.
Edin Dzeko scored a braced against the Foxes to take his tally to nine goals from 10 Premier League and cup games and got an 87th minute winner against the Cottagers in this fixture last season when City came from a goal down to win 2-1.
With top scorer Sergio Aguero facing a few weeks out, the goal-scoring responsibilities are going to have to be shared against Rene Meulensteen’s side at the weekend.
Yaya Toure has three goals in his last three league games and the Ivorian international is 9/2 to score first for his team against Fulham or 17/10 to score any time over the 90 minutes as City look to go six away games on the bounce unbeaten in all competitions.
Rival defences have struggled to cope with the blue half of Manchester’s free-flowing attacking style and City have scored three penalties in their last five games in all competitions. They’re 9/2 to score from the spot again on Saturday.
Depending on results, City could be top of the table on Saturday evening. They’re 4/1 in Paddy Power’s mini-league betting to accumulate the most points over the festive period that runs from Saturday until 1 January.
