While Pep Guardiola’s side could still finish the weekend in second place, three points from Saturday’s clash at the Etihad Stadium it would at least increase the pressure on leaders Arsenal ahead of their big clash with Chelsea on Sunday.
After losing to Liverpool, City have returned to normal, winning their last two matches and resting several players during their midweek Champions League win over Sevilla.
Still, while any meeting between the champions and a newly promoted team at the Etihad would be a foregone conclusion, Marco Silva’s Fulham are a difficult opponent.
Exceeding expectations and hard to beat, Aleksandar Mitrovic has quashed any notion that he’s not good enough for the Premier League, while the rest of the squad are showing value that previous incarnations have desperately lacked.
Here is everything you need to know about the game.
