Manchester City

Manchester City will look to book their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup when they welcome Fulham to the Etihad this Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s side qualified for this stage by beating Swindon Town 4-1 in the last round.

But they come into this game on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton in the league. The draw ended an eleven game-winning run in the league for Guardiola’s side. It was also the first time they did not win a game since losing 2-1 to RB Leipzig in the Champions League in early December.

They will now look to get back to winning ways when they host SkyBet Championship high-fliers Fulham.

The last time they played the London side, they ran out 3-0 winners. They have won each of the last eleven head-to-head meetings with Fulham and have not lost to them since a 3-1 loss in 2009.

They will expect to win this game but know they cannot take the visitors for granted, given their current form.

Possible Man City starting line-up

Zack Steffen; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Nathan Ake, Joao Cancelo; Ilkay Gundogan, Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva; Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish.

Injured: None

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None


Marco Silva will take his Fulham side to Manchester this weekend, looking to cause a mighty upset.

The SkyBet Championship side have a similar record with their hosts in the last five games, having won four and drawn one in that period.

The draw came in their last game against Blackpool, ending a five-game-winking run. 

The visitors have been potent in front of goal recently, scoring 23 goals in their last five games. 

They will fancy their chances of getting a result against the ‘Sky Blues’. However, they have a poor defensive record, having conceded in each of their last four games. They have kept only two clean sheets in their last ten games.

But they are unbeaten in their last eight away games, though, and will be confident of extending that run further.

Possible Fulham starting line-up

Paulo Gazzaniga; Neco Williams, Tosin Adarabioyo, Michael Hector, Antonee Robinson; Harrison Reed, Nathaniel Chalobah, Bobby DeCordova-Reid; Fábio Carvalho, Harry Wilson, Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Injured: None

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None
