Preview and TV Coverage Plans

Manchester City welcome Fulham to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, with coverage plans available for those in the United States.

It is planned to be a showdown between two of the best teams in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s charges have been sensational, despite being second. Erling Haaland’s goalscoring form has been amazing.

However, Fulham are quietly having a brilliant campaign. Marco Silva has led the newly promoted team to seventh position after 13 matches.

Fulham are outscoring Brighton and Liverpool, and are currently just two points behind Chelsea.

Silva’s usual brand of attacking football won’t necessarily work against Manchester City. They will have to be more pragmatic. Guardiola, for his part, will not alter his approach at all.

Comparing the recent form of Manchester City and Fulham

Manchester City hope to eventually overtake Arsenal at the top of the table. However, his recent form has not been flawless.

After a 1-0 loss at Anfield on October 16, Manchester City have won back-to-back Premier League games.

They were at their best in a 3-1 home win over Brighton. All before pulling off a 1-0 win against Leicester City without Haaland.

Fulham’s last defeat came on 9 October in a 3-1 loss to rivals West Ham. Although, the Cottagers have since been undefeated in four.

A 2-2 draw with Bournemouth was followed by back-to-back wins against Aston Villa and Leeds United.

In their most recent outing, Silva’s men drew 0-0 at home to Everton.

Predicted lineups

Manchester City has no fresh casualties before the arrival of Fulham. Kalvin Phillips and Kyle Walker are injured while Haaland will return to action.

Meanwhile, Fulham are still without Manor Solomon and Layvin Kurzawa. The couple remains doubtful about long-term injuries. Bobby Reid will also miss through suspension.

Manchester City expected starting eleven (4-3-3): Ederson, Akanji, Stones, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodriguez, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Mahrez, Haaland

Fulham Predicted Starting XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Mbabu, Diop, Ream, Robinson, Palhinha, Reed, Kebano, Pereira, Willian, Mitrovic
