Manchester City will be trying to take the top of the table against Fulham before Arsenal has the opportunity to reclaim the first position against Chelsea on Sunday and extend their home winning streak to 15 games.
Last week, Pep Guardiola’s team battled Leicester City, with Kevin De Bruyne’s free-kick clinching all three points at the King Power Stadium.
Man City injury news: Erling Haaland was omitted from the matchday squad for the first time this season after picking up a knock. The Norwegian was then ruled out of City’s midweek Champions League match against Sevilla, which he was unlikely to start given that City had already qualified for the next stage of the competition. However, he has returned to training.
