Manchester City welcome relegation-threatened Fulham to the Etihad on Saturday.

Man City v Fulham
Published: Saturday, 5th December 2020 at 1:45 pm

Manchester City will hope to make it two Premier League wins on the bounce when they entertain Fulham at the Etihad Stadium this weekend.


City put five past Burnley last Saturday to end a two-game winless run in the top flight and re-energise their title push.

With nine Premier League fixtures played, Pep Guardiola’s men are already six points off top spot – although they do have a game in hand over the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool.

Victory over lowly Fulham would certainly boost the confidence among Guardiola’s troops as the festive fixture congestion looms.

But the Cottagers will be hoping to spring a surprise themselves after beating Leicester 2-1 on Monday night – their second league win of the campaign. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Man City v Fulham on TV and online.

Man City v Fulham team news

Man City: Sergio Aguero may not be risked on Saturday as the striker continues to battle back from a persistent knee problem.

Riyad Mahrez could come back into the XI after scoring a hat-trick against Fulham, while Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus should also get the nod.

Fulham: Kenny Tete, Terence Kongolo and Joshua Onomah remain out for manager Scott Parker.

Whether or not Aleksandar Mitrovic returns to the starting XI – having been dropped to the bench for their last two outings – remains to be seen. Ademola Lookman and Ivan Cavaleiro both scored in the win over Leicester. 

Our prediction: Man City v Fulham

City could hit cruise control early on here and dismantle Fulham as they did Burnley seven days ago.

And so the focus will be on how Parker sets up. Sean Dyche tried to make a game of it last weekend and it didn’t work for the Clarets, with the likes of Mahrez and Jesus enjoying the freedom of the Etihad.

Fulham will have to take the few chances they get in this game – and even then it’s unlikely to be enough. City should overpower the Londoners and claim a smooth victory here.

Our prediction: Man City 3-0 Fulham
