Confirmed Line-Ups: Fulham vs Manchester City (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Marco Silva and Pep Guardiola have both announced their respective Fulham and Manchester City teams for Saturday’s Premier League clash at Craven Cottage. 

City have the opportunity to move top of the Premier League table with a victory in west London on Saturday afternoon, as Pep Guardiola’s side continue their pursuit of a fourth successive title. 

The Sky Blues require three wins from their remaining three matches to win their sixth title of the Catalan’s tenure, and travel to Fulham in buoyant form, having not lost a game across all competitions since mid-December.

Manchester City comfortably dispatched of Gary O’Neil’s Wolves side at the Etihad Stadium last weekend, with Erling Haaland scoring four goals and three in the first-half during a 5-1 win on Saturday evening. 

Pep Guardiola’s side have not lost to Fulham since 2009, with Marco Silva’s side having won only one of their last five matches ahead of this weekend’s meeting against the reigning Premier League champions.

On the injury front, and in a huge boost at exactly the right time for the club, Manchester City have a fully-fit squad for their visit to the capital, with Phil Foden and Ruben Dias having both returned from illness against Wolves last weekend. 

The first-team squad were afforded three days holiday following the Wolves win, returning to the City Football Academy from Wednesday to prepare for this weekend’s crucial Premier League match. 

Ahead of the final week of the campaign, both managers have now confirmed their respective starting line-ups for the lunchtime clash at Craven Cottage between Fulham and Manchester City.
