Manchester City showed their awesome attacking flair on Wednesday night and all but ended Arsenal’s title chances with a scintillating performance. Kevin De Bruyne was at his absolute best and scored a brace against The Gunners. He was everywhere during the game and gave a man of the match performance, showing his true world class ability.
Erling Haaland now has 49 goals for the season and notched a late goal in the 4-1 win over 2nd place Arsenal and he also put in a top performance as City’s class shone through and Arsenal had no answer to City’s play.
With this result, Manchester City have shortened in odds for the Premier League title and they are now 5/4 with SkyBet to win the treble and emulate Manchester United’s 1999 feat. With the Premier League now looking certain for Manchester City, they have a Champions League semi-final awaiting them and then rivals Manchester United in the final.
Next up in the Premier League is Fulham and in their first season back in the Premier League Marco Silva has done a brilliant job. Fulham sit 10th in the League and have performed so well to get to mid-table and have no relegation fear at all.
Paulinha has been a revelation for them and his running of games is evident by Fulham’s results when he plays versus when he is absent. At home Fulham have drawn with Liverpool and beaten Chelsea, but taken big defeats to Arsenal and Newcastle.
They welcome Manchester City to Craven Cottage and although Marco Silva will look for Fulham to compete well in the game, the Manchester City class will once again show.
Expect Manchester City to alter the starting line up a little, maybe to give Phil Foden a start and also Mahrez.
For Fulham, they are likely to keep Dan James and Harry Wilson in the team, playing with a false nine, trying to retain the ball and causing Manchester City some problems on the counter attack.
|Fulham 0 v 2 Manchester City||6/1 Bet 365|
|Fulham 0 v 3 Manchester City||15/2 Bet 365|
|Fulham 0 v 4 Manchester City||13/1 Bet365|
Manchester City are ¼ to win with most sportsbooks, so there is absolutely no value in that at all. Looking at a similar winning bet we put up for Manchester City against Sheffield United in the FA Cup Semi-final, at Punters.pub, we expect Manchester City to win this comfortably and with their defensive record improving, our main bet for this game is 11/10 with Sky Bet of Manchester City to win to nil.
Arsenal went to Fulham and eased to a 3-0 win in March when firing on all cylinders and we expect Manchester City to be full of confidence, to head to London and win to nil this weekend.
