Manchester City – Fulham, Carabao Cup Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MANCHESTER CITY - FULHAM
Manchester City again showed that it’s hard to stop them at all and after an early goal against Tottenham, they managed to keep their lead and the game ended 1-0 for them, but it is important to note that the citizens fully controlled the match and unequivocally showed that they were the better and the more prepared team and maybe they had to score at least another 1-2 goals against Spurs, who only got one big chance in the match, when Lamela missed. However, City has a huge team and players such as Jesus, Sane and De Bruyne did not start the game, but entered as substitutes, so they can now take part in this match. Manchester City is currently playing the same way they played last season and are just as strong as they were, punishing each opponent’s mistake.
Fulham definitely has serious problems and they have to find a way to survive this season. This is very important for the project and the ambitions of their wealthy owner and at the moment their ultimate priority should not be Carabao Cup. It is not clear how big the motivation of the Londoners in this match will be, but their defense plays very weak and concede a huge number of goals. In the last two games they lost by 4-2 and 0-3 from Cardiff and Bournemouth. They hardly have any chances against City Stars now.
Recently City played with Fulham in the Premier League, winning 3-0 and the result could have a difference of 5-6 goals. Still, this match depends entirely on the citizens’ approach. We are expecting some reserves that have not been given much chance lately and City can also score a lot of goals in the Fulham‘s net, who have a much more important Huddersfield match in the Premier league on Monday than this visit in the Carabo Cup. We are expecting a big victory for the citizens and our prediction is Man City over 2.5 goals at 1.45. Since City’s defense has been doing a great job lately, as an alternative prediction we’ll give – City to win both halves at 1.65
