Manchester City vs Fulham Match Preview
Manchester City look sure to relinquish the most prestigious trophy of last season’s domestic treble, but can stay on course to retain the other two by beating Fulham.
With Liverpool over the hills and far away in the Premier League title race, the Champions League will now be the biggest target for City this term. But you can be certain they will also want to lift the FA Cup and Carabao Cup again too.
A 3-1 advantage going into Wednesday’s home second leg of their League Cup semi-final against neighbours Manchester United puts Pep Guardiola’s side in great shape there, while an Etihad Stadium meeting with Championship side Fulham on Sunday also suits very nicely.
Fulham were, of course, relegated from the Premier League last season but have every chance of bouncing straight back in Scott Parker’s first full campaign as a manager.
They are third in the Championship table, just four points off top spot, but it’s their home form that has been most impressive and that extends to the FA Cup third round in which they won 2-1 against top-flight opponents Aston Villa at Craven Cottage.
This is unlikely to be a virtual walkover for City and we think Fulham should perform with credit. But usually, the reigning English champions are rock-solid in assignments such as this and they are backed to advance in routine style.
