Preview

City are unbeaten in three games in all competitions and crushed Burnley 5-0 in previous Premier League outing.

Fulham have only won twice this season, but both of those results came in their last four games and they come into the game on the back of a morale boosting 2-1 win at Leicester City, who City lost to earlier this campaign.

Team News

Pep Guardiola will have only one absence in forward Sergio Aguero.

Defenders Terrence Kongolo (foot) and Kenny Tete (calf) will miss out for Fulham.

Prediction

An interesting managerial duel, Pep v Parker is experience vs novice. So a good attack by City with Fulham sitting deep seems to be how this one will go. I do think City’s quality in midfield will be the difference. Along with a greatly improved defense.

Manchester City 4-0 Fulham
