Match Preview

It has been a strong start to the new Premier League season for Man City, as the reigning champions are the only team in the top-flight to have won each of their opening three matches. Pep Guardiola will be hoping that his side can maintain that record on Saturday, as they welcome Fulham to the Etihad.

It has been a daunting start to the new season for the champions, as they are already sit two points clear at the top of the standings. However, they narrowly avoided dropping points for the first time this term on matchday three, as Rodri netted the winning goal away from home against Sheffield United with just two minutes of the 90 remaining.

Positives will be taken from the start to the new season that Fulham have made, as they have won once, drawn once, and lost once across their opening three matches. The Cottagers are unbeaten in their opening three away matches this term, as they picked up an excellent point at the Emirates in their most recent game on the road.

Fulham stunned their rivals by going ahead inside a minute, before they needed an 87th-minute equalizer from Joao Palhinha to rescue a point. It was a battling display by the Cottagers, who saw Calvin Bassey sent off in the final ten minutes. But, getting a repeat result on the road against the defending champions remains a tall order.

Man City vs Fulham Prediction

Man City have won 17 of their last 21 matches against the Cottagers, which includes victories in each of the last 14 across all competitions. We can’t see anything other than a victory for the hosts.
