Manchester City will take on Fulham as they travel to Craven Cottage on Sunday, looking to grab all three points from this away encounter. After securing an impressive 4-1 victory over the current league leaders, Arsenal, the Sky Blues reduced the gap to just two points at the top of the table, despite having played two games less.

Pep Guardiola should opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a single change to the starting XI for this contest. Phil Foden will be pushing for a start this weekend which could force Jack Grealish to the bench.

Ederson will feature in goal for Man City after conceding one goal in his last outing. Ruben Dias will resume his defensive partnership with John Stones at the centre of Guardiola’s defence as they try to keep the opposition attackers at bay during the game.

Kyle Walker will look to give a good account of himself as a right-back, while Manuel Akanji gets a chance to impress as a left-back. Both of them need to defend their penalty box well before trying to create chances going forward.

Sergio Gomez and Aymeric Laporte will be named on the bench as they wait to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.


Ilkay Gundogan, Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne will operate in the central areas as they try to dominate the possession in the middle of the park and engineer enough chances for Man City to win this contest.

Klavin Phillips will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.


Bernardo Silva will function in the right-wing position while Phil Foden starts on the opposite flank; both of them will have to provide support from the wide areas and cut into the penalty box to create chances in front of the goal.

Erling Haaland will lead the Mancunian giants‘ line on the pitch’s attacking third. The Norway international will continue his rich run of form and fancy his chances of finding the back of the net.

Julian Alvarez and Riyad Mahrez will be named on the bench as they wait for a chance to catch the eye in the game’s final quarter if Man City needs a goal by then.
