Following their 4-1 demolition job over Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, Manchester City will be looking to carry that momentum into their next Premier League game against Fulham.
Manchester City have just a single injury worry ahead of their game with the Cottagers – adaptable defender Nathan Ake is set to miss out with a thigh problem. Outside of this, the Citizens have no fresh injury concerns.
In City’s last Premier League outing, they roundly trounced league leaders Arsenal by a score of 4-1. Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones and Erling Haaland all put the ball beyond Aaron Ramsdale – Rob Holding’s late goal proved to be but a mere consolation.
Fulham, on the other hand, were beaten by Unai Emery’s Aston Villa in their last league outing. Tyrone Mings glanced a header into the far corner of the Cottagers net – they couldn’t find a response, as the game ended at 1-0.
When the two teams last played each other, back in early November, Manchester City emerged victorious despite playing most of the game with ten men. With the scores tied at 1-1, Joao Cancelo was handed a red card. City dug in to keep the scores level, only to be awarded a penalty in the dying embers of the game – Haaland was on hand to strike it home.
