Manchester City v Fulham FA Cup Betting Tips 05/02/2022
Top of the Premier League Manchester City clash with Championship table-toppers Fulham in the FA Cup fourth round, so welcome to our Manchester City v Fulham FA Cup Betting Tips 05/02/2022. The Citizens are in top form after racing to the top of the table, while Fulham has caught the eye for their goal-scoring capabilities and entertaining football. With both sides looking to attack, there could be goals and, possibly, an upset at the Etihad. This fixture kicks off at 3p.m on Saturday, but it will not be broadcast.
Man City drew 1-1 away at Southampton before the winter break, ending their 11-match winning run in the Premier League. It was just the second time in 17 matches in all competitions where City have dropped points. Strong league form leaves City nine points clear atop the Premier League. Also top of their league are visitors Fulham, who have won four of their last five league matches. But the Cottagers’ winning streak was ended last time out with a 1-1 draw against Blackpool at home.
In terms of team news, City’s only injury doubt is defender Oleksandr Zinchenko. Although, Cole Palmer, Gabriel Jesus and Ederson may miss out as they are lacking match fitness. Fulham’s only absentees are, Ivan Cavaleiro (groin) and Terence Kongolo (knee), who are out with long-term injuries.
Matchwinner Betting Odds
Unsurprisingly, the matchwinner odds represent a clear favourite between Man City and Fulham. But, Marc Silva’s side could provide tough competition after winning four of their last five matches, including two away victories. For a Fulham upset, Coral offer the best odds of 20/1. A draw could be slightly more likely, considering the Cottagers are unbeaten in eight in all competitions. Fulham has also lost just twice in their 15 away games this season, and MansionBet will return odds of 17/2 for a tie in 90 minutes. Our tip this week is to back the Citizens. On current form, few teams can beat City, and they have won their last eight on the spin at the Etihad. Boylesports are offering 2/13 odds for a home win in the fourth round.
Total Goals Betting Tips
The goals have been flowing for both City and Fulham recently, and additional value can be found in the total goals market. With 74 Championship goals in 28 matches this season, Fulham are the top goalscorers in the division by some distance. City has notched 55 goals during their campaign, only second to Liverpool by three. Recent form suggests goals may be coming at both ends too. Fulham has seen score lines of 3-2, 6-2 and 7-0 in four of their last five. City has been equally potent, particularly at the Etihad, where they have won 6-3 and 7-0 in two of their last three. As a result, the best value for the total goals market would be over 3.5 and SpreadEx have the best odds here at 4/5.
Anytime Goalscorer Betting
Goals should be on the cards, which means backing a goalscorer is a good shout for City vs Fulham. Looking at City’s ranks, there is no standout talisman, with eight separate goalscorers in their last three matches. One player who has netted in each of these matches is Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian playmaker has four goals in his last three matches and at 31/21, provided by SBK, there is good value on backing another De Bruyne goal. But, our pick this week comes from Fulham’s ranks. Aleksandar Mitrovic has been electric in the Championship, scoring 28 goals in 26 matches. With six goals in his last four matches, the Serbian striker will fancy his chances against anyone. Unibet has the best odds for a Mitrovic anytime goal at 3/1.
This FA Cup tie has the potential to provide goals, entertainment and, maybe, an upset too. City and Fulham like to entertain, so an intriguing encounter could unfold at the Etihad.
