Robinho or Wright-Phillips to deliver as Bellamy is ruled out

Manchester City will line up for their key Premier League match against Fulham on Sunday without key striker Craig Bellamy.

As the two sides battle it out for the best position in the Premier League - City trailing Fulham by only two points - Blues boss Mark Hughes will be looking towards Benjani, who has scored in both of his appearances for Manchester City against Fulham - 13/2 to score the first goal in the match, and Brazilian superstar Robinho (9/2 for a first strike) to grab the required goals early.

In the betting for the 90 minute victory, the favourites are Manchester City priced at 19/20 with Fulham 16/5 to take all three points on offer - the full-time draw priced at 11/5, however we also have a "draw-no-bet" market, where City are 2/5 against Fulham's 7/4.

Thursday's scorer, Stephen Ireland is priced at 10/1 to strike first in Sunday's Premier League match along with Shaun Wright-Phillips, 7/2 each to hit the target at any point in the 90 minutes.

Following his side's side's 3-1 defeat against Hamburg in their midweek UEFA Cup quarter-final, Bellamy has been all but ruled out of Sunday's game - and perhaps even the UEFA Cup return leg on Thursday.

The earlier meeting between these two at Craven Cottage this season ended in a 1-1 draw, with one time Fulham legend Jimmy Bullard providing the goods for the home side, but Roy Hodgeson will be looking elsewhere this time round.

Fancy the possibility of a repeat result? The 1-1 correct score is priced at 11/2 for this weekend's mid-table clash. Draw/Draw in the double result betting priced at 9/2.

Man City have a good record in home Premier League matches, having won their last six home games in succession - if only home games counted Mark Hughes' team would be in a Champions League place.

Fulham's Zoltan Gera who scored The Cottagers second in their recent victory over Manchester United, can be backed at 16/1 to be the first scorer - 6/1 for a strike at any point in the match, but the London side have only managed a total of five goals in their last 14 Premier League away games, with three of those coming last time out in Bolton.
