Fulham vs. Man City Betting Tips: Best bets including a player fouls pick from Craven Cottage
Manchester City continue their pursuit of the Premier League title with a trip to Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon. We’ve called upon Anthony Eadson to provide us with his best bets for the game, which includes a 14/1 longshot.
After their dominant 4-1 victory over Arsenal on Wednesday evening, Manchester City now sit just two points behind The Gunners with two games in hand. Firing on all cylinders is an understatement for Man City at the moment, with Pep’s side having won 12 of their last 13 in all competitions as they close in on a potential treble which is now priced as short as short as 11/10 with some betting sites.
The main objective for Fulham this season was to remain in the Premier League. Marco Silva has worked wonders with this squad and with 45 points after 32 games they have surpassed expectations. Aleksander Mitrovic remains suspended for this game with Fulham having won two of their last eight. When the sides met at the Etihad in November, a 95th minute Erling Haaland penalty gave City all three points in a 2-1 win after Joao Cancelo had been dismissed in the first half.
Fulham vs Man City Tips
This first selection I’ve opted for on Sunday is from the player fouls market where I’m siding with Fulham centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo to give away one or more.
Tosin actually made an appearance for Manchester City in the Champions League back in 2016/2017 and on Sunday Paddy Power go 10/11 that he gives away a foul against his former employers.
This bet has landed in all of Tosin’s last seven matches with foul figures of 1,1,1,1,1,2,1. There is also a chance that playing on the right side of central defence he may be dragged out to deal with the dangerous Jack Grealish, one of the most fouled players in the league.
I’ll also be having a couple of quid on Joao Palhinha to be carded and Erling Haaland to score two or more goals at 14/1 with the same betting sites, Paddy Power or Betfair.
No player has collected more yellow cards this season in the Premier League than Palhinha with 12 in 29 matches. Six of those have come in his last 10 outings and it’s also worth noting that the Fulham midfielder has made a whopping 119 tackles this season. That’s more 28 than any other player in the league in 2022/2023 and he is on the way to setting a new record. When putting in this many challenges it’s clear to see why Palhinha’s card-count is so high this campaign.
Erling Haalnd continues to rewrite the record books and has now scored 49 goals in all competitions this season. The big Norwegian has scored two or more goals in eight matches of his 28 league starts this season and with Fulham lacking their focal point in Mitrovic, I see this being another comfortable win for City with hopefully a couple of goals for Haaland.
