At Craven Cottage, Premier League champions Manchester City go in search of a third win of the season against a Fulham side currently above them on goal difference. Roberto Mancini’s charges are 17/20 (BetVictor) to come out on top but the Cottagers are strong on their own patch and a fourth stalemate in six, at 13/5 with Stan James, could be on the cards for City in a fixture Skybet quote at 12/1 to be goalless.
Liverpool are still seeking their first victory despite their promising performance against Manchester United but Brendan Rodgers’ men can finally snare a victory at Carrow Road where the Reds are 4/5 via Ladbrokes to see off Norwich. Neighbours Everton by contrast have made a flying start and currently in third, Paddy Power’s 4/9 favourites can at least consolidate their position by beating Southampton.
Meanwhile, Paddy Power also mark 6/4 against a Newcastle triumph at Reading and the Magpies’ local rivals Sunderland can also prevail; bet365 pricing them at 21/20 to conquer Wigan at the Stadium of Light.
