Fulham v Man City tips: Long afternoon ahead for the Cottagers?
The Premier League returns as Manchester City travel to Fulham in Saturday’s early kick-off.
City will go top of the table for at least 24 hours with a win. And they’ll be very confident.
This game sees the league’s highest scorers face its worst defence. Will this be a walkover for Pep Guardiola’s side or will Fulham spring a surprise?
We all know how City are going to set up. But what will Scott Parker do? Will he want his side to sit back and hope for the best? Or does he try to disrupt the Manchester side’s rhythm?
City’s only fully fit centre-back is Aymeric Laporte, so Aleksandr Mitrovic could have some joy when Fulham get a chance to break.
Ryan Babel will look to expose Oleksandr Zinchecko at left-back too, but he can’t afford to leave his full-back too isolated against Raheem Sterling or Leroy Sane.
Bernardo Silva has also grown into one of City’s most important players this term. We make the playmaker 5/2 to hit the back of the net.
