Premier League: Manchester City vs Fulham live
Manchester City are aiming to maintain their unbeaten streak in the new Premier League season when they host Fulham at the Etihad Stadium. In their last match, City secured a late 2-1 victory against Sheffield United, while Fulham earned a commendable point with a 2-2 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 pm GMT.
Manchester City, with three consecutive wins in the Premier League, aim to extend their streak with a victory at home against Fulham this Saturday. Despite a late scare against Sheffield United in their last game, City emerged victorious, maintaining their 100% record this season. Guardiola’s side has a remarkable home record, winning their last 17 games at the Etihad Stadium and scoring 55 goals while conceding only seven. Facing Fulham, Guardiola, watching from afar due to back surgery, will expect another strong performance from his team.
Fulham are aiming to carry the momentum from positive results against Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur into their clash with Manchester City. Following a disappointing 3-0 loss to Brentford, Fulham drew with Arsenal and defeated Spurs in the EFL Cup. However, facing the defending champions at the Etihad Stadium is a daunting task, especially considering their poor track record there. Fulham have not won at the Etihad since 2009 and have lost their last nine visits. Marco Silva’s side will need an exceptional performance to upset Manchester City and head into the international break on a high note.
Manchester City has dominated Fulham, winning their last 14 meetings in all competitions, including 11 consecutive encounters in the Premier League.
Manchester City are expected to secure maximum points against Fulham on Saturday, given their historical dominance over the Cottagers. While Fulham may aim to frustrate City and counter-attack, the Premier League champions possess the quality to break through their defence and maintain their impressive winning streak at the Etihad Stadium. City are the clear favourites for this encounter and should secure a comfortable victory.
