Man City vs Fulham Predicted Lineups – Another Customary City Win?

Manchester City are the only team with a 100% record at the start of the new Premier League campaign. Despite their involvement in the Super Cup, City have had a very strong start with only one goal conceded in the first three matches. Manchester City have a dominant record against Fulham with 14 consecutive wins against the Cottagers in all competitions. The defending champions suddenly come into the game as the favourites by a significant margin.

Man City vs Fulham Predicted Lineups and News

Man City – Another Dominant Performance from the Champions?

Manchester City had a thoroughly dominating performance against Sheffield United in the last league match. Despite being the home team, the Blades had barely touched the ball in the 90 minutes and their goal was constantly peppered with shots from City. One can expect a similar play in the upcoming match against Fulham, who have suffered terribly at the hands of sitting in the past. The last time City even failed to win a game against Fulham was in September 2011.

Team news: Man City

Pep Guardiola’s biggest injury worry in the squad will be the absence of Kevin De Bruyne – even if City have been able to cope pretty well without him. John Stones is suffering from a muscular injury that will keep him out of the game. Manuel Akanji was unavailable for the recent match against Sheffield United because of illness, but he will be back for the upcoming game. Phil Foden is likely to be picked in the starting line-up after an impressive performance against Newcastle.

Man City Predicted Lineups (4-2-3-1):

Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Nathan Ake, Josko Gvardiol, Rodri, Mateo Kovacic, Phil Foden, Julian Alvarez, Jack Grealish, Erling Haaland

Fulham – Bracing for Another Strong Performance from the Cottagers

The Cottagers have picked up only one win from the first three matches, but the manager Marco Silva will be quite pleased about his team’s performances. Fulham have had commendable performances against the two North London clubs – Arsenal and Spurs – in the Premier League and EFL Cup. Fulham’s record against Manchester City is terrible and the Cottagers last picked up a victory against City in the 2008-09 season when it was a completely different City outfit. Fulham are clearly going up against the walls for this one, but Silva is likely to demand a performance similar to the ones put in against Arsenal and Tottenham.

Team news: Fulham

Roy Hodgson welcomes Tim Ream back from suspension. The Cottagers will also welcome Calvin Bassey back from completing his suspension in the midweek match against Spurs. Willian has been unavailable for the recent two matches due to a knock and due to the rumours about his future. The Brazilian is likely to return to the starting line-up.

Fulham Predicted Lineups (4-2-3-1):

Bernd Leno, Kenny Tete, Issa Diop, Calvin Bassey, Antonee Robinson, Harrison Reed, Andreas Pereira, Harry Wilson, Bobby Reid, Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez
