Manchester City will entertain Fulham at the Etihad Stadium this Saturday as they try to secure a good result at home in the Premier League. The Mancunian giants managed to earn a narrow 2-1 win away at Sheffield United recently which will give them a lot of momentum ahead of this contest.
Pep Guardiola will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and could make one change to his first XI for this game. Phil Foden will get a chance to catch the eye from the start while Bernardo Silva makes way for him and drops to the bench.
4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face Fulham
Ederson will feature in goal for Man City after conceding one goal in his last Premier League outing. Nathan Ake will resume his defensive partnership with Ruben Dias at the centre of Man City’s backline as they try to restrict the Cottagers from scoring this weekend.
Kyle Walker will get the nod to start at right-back while Josko Gvardiol hopes to prove his worth on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will be given the freedom to get forward and express themselves in the Fulham half.
Manuel Akanji is a major doubt for this game as he continues to recover from an illness.
Mateo Kovacic, Rodri and Julian Alvarez will make up Man City’s midfield as they try to establish their dominance over the opposition at the centre of the park. All three of them need to move the ball well so that they can create enough clear-cut chances for Man City to win this game.
Bernardo Silva will have to settle for a place on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if Guardiola decides to call upon his services.
Jack Grealish will once again get a chance to impress as the left-wing while Phil Foden looks to make a difference from the right flank.
Erling Haaland will spearhead Man City’s attack in the final third. The Norwegian talent got his name on the scoresheet in his last league appearance, so he would be eager to keep his good form going this weekend.
