The Premier League champions have been in excellent goal-scoring form heading into the top-flight clash against Fulham.
Manchester City will be desperate to pick up three points this weekend to ensure they can leapfrog Arsenal into the top spot in the Premier League in anticipation that the current leaders slip up against Chelsea. Pep Guardiola’s men take on Fulham looking to make it three straight wins in the top flight and go above Arsenal before the latter’s tough trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
But getting the better of Fulham may not be a walk in the park for the reigning champions, as the visitors are unbeaten in their last four games in the league.
Fulham have been surprisingly strong throughout the first half of the Premier League season.
They sit seventh in the table and are unbeaten in their last four games – picking up eight points across clashes against Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Leeds and Everton.
City have been in excellent form overall despite their 1-0 loss at Liverpool recently. They have no fresh injury concerns heading into this game, but Kalvin Phillips and Kyle Walker are still missing for the home team.
Super striker Erling Haaland is expected to return to the team for this clash, having missed City’s last two matches with an injury.
