One to Watch: Raheem Sterling

England ace Raheem Sterling is our player to watch in this Premier League preview. With two goals from his three league starts, the flying winger will have benefitted from skipping international duty and will have his sights set on Fulham. Both his goals so far have opened the scoring and he is 4/1 with BetBright to do the same here against Fulham.

Claudio Bravo and Kevin de Bruyne are long-term absentees, although Danilo should return to the matchday squad after a recent injury. Many of City’s star players skipped international duty this time around, so they should be close to full strength Saturday.

Manchester City vs Fulham Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Aleksandar Mitrovic and co. spring a surprise on the champions?

Manchester City are overwhelming favourites in this weekend’s Premier League predictions. Their home record speaks for itself, with 32 wins from their last 38 in the league. Their visitors have played an expansive game on their return to the top flight and that approach could see them on the receiving end of a heavy defeat.  Unbeaten so far, Pep Guardiola’s team will not be prepared to surrender that status anytime soon, making them huge 2/17 favourites with 888sport.

Fulham have brought an entertaining brand of football with them from the Championship, and they will certainly be brave enough to have a go at their hosts. Conceding at least two goals in each of their four games will be a concern when they come up against City’s star-studded attack, yet they will be confident of making their mark on this match. Including an away win in your football predictions has big returns – the Cottagers are 19/1 to claim a shock victory.

Games after the international breaks can bring about surprise results. A point looks to be Fulham’s best hope and at odds of 9/1, it may be worth taking the gamble. 

Premier League previews involving City always have a host of talent ready to pounce for the opening goal. Sergio Aguero is top of the list at 2/1 with Gabriel Jesus at 3/1. Down the pecking order comes Aleksandar Mitrovic at 11/1 and his German teammate Andre Schurrle, priced at 14/1.

Predicted Score: Manchester City 3 - 1 Fulham
