Manchester City vs Fulham
Manchester City bounced back from their sensational defeat at Spurs with the 5-0 demolition of Burnley but the Clarets have always been a good customer to the Citizens, here comes another freebie.
Fulham had the most surprising result of game week 10 with a massive win away at the King Power Stadium, it was a victory for Scott Parker, a victory for the fans who watched from home as their team picked their first win since their return to the top flight and to the players, quite deserving.
Manchester City struck gold last weekend in a five star fashion, firing five past Sean Dyche’s side and Riyad Mahrez bagged a hatrick with Kevin De Bruyne pulling the strings as always from the midfield.
It was a much needed win after the kind of evening they had against Jose Mourinho’s side.
Fulham’s win over Leicester may have been against the tide but they have actually been playing quite well.
They only couldn’t find way past teams and ultimately couldn’t close their legs to avoid conceding goals, they didn’t only get past Leicester, they also made sure the Foxes didn’t raid them badly.
Manchester City are six points away from Spurs, the league leaders but they have a match in hand, despite losing twice already, they aren’t far off in terms of points but lie in 11th on the table, a testament to how crazy the current season is.
The Lilywhites jumped out of the drop zone with their first win since their promotion, one win in ten is a relegation form but they can take things one step at a time and hope to build on their amazing result at the King Power Stadium but they will have to defend deep and concentrate against the Citizens.
How will they line up? The Lilywhites will most likely return the same line up that beat Leicester on Monday but will have to add extra bodies in the middle of the pack to attempt to contain the former champions who will definitely go for the jugular.
Pep Guardiola didn’t have to sweat in midweek in the champions league, the goalless draw was inconsequential as they already qualified for the next round and he can now focus on domestic assignments.
Scott Parker and everyone at Fulham won’t like to look at history, by the way, they have lost each of their last five against Manchester City without scoring a single goal with records standing at 16-0.
In fact, of the last ten, the Lilywhites only have a point to their name, from a 2-2 draw in 2011.
