Paul Robinson landed a Europa League Daily Acca on Thursday and he's picked out a 4/1 shot today that starts in the Championship. Here are his selections:

- Back Fulham @ 3/4
- Back Athletic Bilbao @ 6/10
- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Tottenham v Man City @ 7/10

The Acca pays approximately 4/1

Fulham to keep on rolling

Bet 1: Back Fulham @ 3/4 - KO 17:30 BST

The undoubted form team of the Championship are Fulham and they finally climbed into the top two during the week as they beat Reading while Cardiff lost at Aston Villa.

The Cottagers only have a one point advantage over Neil Warnock's men - and Cardiff have a game in hand - so they can't afford to let up just yet, and their goal has to be to win their final four matches.

The visitors to Craven Cottage this evening are Brentford and they are making a late charge for the play-offs. The Bees have won three on the bounce coming into this game - all by a 1-0 scoreline - but it is worth noting that they were facing poor or out of form opponents.

Bilbao to take advantage of travel-sick Deportivo

Bet 2: Back Athletic Bilbao @ 6/10 - KO 19:45 BST

There was a much needed victory for Ahtletic Bilbao on Monday as they went to Villarreal and won 3-1. It was quite remarkable as their away form prior to that was dreadful.

Things haven't been as bad at home however as they are unbeaten in 10. Admittedly they have drawn plenty of those matches - seven to be precise - but today they face a side who have a miserable record on their travels.

Deportivo are in 18th and while they beat Malaga on Friday, Malaga are bottom of La Liga and Deportivo were at home. On the road it's one point from a possible 30 since their only away victory of the campaign - with the last five being to nil.

Another high-scoring affair with City involved

Bet 3: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Tottenham v Man City @ 7/10 - KO 19:45 BST

We conclude at Wembley for what will hopefully be a goal-fest when Manchester City travel south to take on Spurs.

It's been a miserable couple of weeks for City as they were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and threw away a 2-0 lead at home to Man United - when a win would have seen them seal the title.

The concerning thing for Pep Guardiola is that his side conceded eight goals over the course of those three games. They certainly won't have it any easier today against Harry Kane and co., so I very much doubt that they will be able to keep a clean sheet.

Going forward is where they excel anyway, and despite the absence of Sergio Aguero, they have a whole host of other players who can put the ball in the back of the net.

Overall, I just can't see how this fixture won't have at least three goals.
