Anthony Taylor will take charge of Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola’s side can move to the top of the Premier League table with a win in west London this weekend, as Manchester City require just three further victories to be crowned Premier League champions for a fourth consecutive season.

Manchester City travel to Craven Cottage on Saturday lunchtime, meanwhile Arsenal visit Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Sunday, with the Premier League title still in the balance ahead of the penultimate weekend of action.

Erling Haaland scored four goals during the Blues’ 5-1 win over Wolves at the Etihad Stadium last weekend, as the Norwegian striker bids to win a second successive Golden Boot.

Julian Alvarez marked his 100th Manchester City appearance with a late goal from the bench, with the thumping victory extending the Sky Blues’ current unbeaten streak in the Premier League to 20 matches.
