Fulham vs Man City prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out tonight?

Two in-form teams from very different ends of the Premier League table meet on Saturday night, as Manchester City head to Fulham.

Scott Parker’s side have clawed back significant ground toward safety and remain in the bottom three only on goal difference; with Brighton not playing until the following day, a point or better will finally see them out of the relegation zone. With three wins and four clean sheets in their last six matches, including the win over Liverpool last time out, there’s genuine reason for optimism among the Craven Cottage faithful.

Man City will pose the toughest of challenges yet, though, with Pep Guardiola’s outfit already back to winning ways after a single defeat; the midweek thrashing of Southampton means it’s 22 wins out of 23 games in all competitions following the loss of the Manchester derby.

The league leaders are storming their way to another title and have a full squad to choose from after the return to action recently of the likes of Sergio Aguero.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.
