    Premier League LIVE: Man City vs Fulham

    Probable Lineups:

    mancity fulhamManchester City (4-4-2): Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Kolarov, Nasri, Y Touré, Fernandinho, Silva, Dzeko, Negredo

    David Silva was on inspired form in City’s 2-0 away win over Hull last weekend, but it is clear that the absence of Sergio Aguero is affecting the side’s attack threat.  Manuel Pellegrini also saw captain Vicent Kompany sent off, which will see Joleon Lescott partner Demichelis against Fulham. Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo will continue their striking partnership in the absence of Aguero and Stevan Jovetic.

    Fulham (4-4-2): Stekelenburg, Riether, Heitinga, Hangeland, Richardson, Dejagah, Holtby, Sidwell, Kacaniklic, Woodrow, Mitroglou

    The Cottagers recorded their first win in ten games last weekend against Newcastle United to move them to within only 4 points off 17th place, giving Felix Magath’s men a fighting chance to survive the drop. The German will however be concerned with the knock to goal hero Ashkan Dejagah and sweat over the fitness of January purchase Kostas Mitroglou. Young Cauley Woodrow should continue to lead the Fulham line after impressing on his debut last weekend.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Vincent Kompany may be a world class defender, but this is one of the funniest own goals you will ever see.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    edin dzeko

    Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko doesn’t get the amount of games he deserves for the number of goals he scores. He’s had the tag of ‘super-sub’ during his time at Manchester City but, with four goals in his last seven games during Aguero’s injury, we’re backing the former Wolfsburg man to put Fulham to the sword.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Manchester City vs. Fulham: An Alternative Review

    Manchester City have won seven and lost none of the last 10 matches with Fulham in all competitions.

    Fulham have managed just one clean sheet in their 23 Barclays Premier League games against City and none in the last 19 meetings.

    Manchester City have won each of the last 21 competitive matches that Spanish midfielder David Silva has found the net in.

    Darren Bent has scored seven Premier League goals against Man City; only against Bolton (11) has he been more prolific in the competition.

    Fulham had one point fewer in 2007-08 (23) than they currently have (24) and still managed to survive, partly due to a 3-2 win away at Man City where current England boss Roy Hodgson triumphed over former England coach Sven Goran Eriksson.

    Manchester City have only once previously had more points after 27 Premier League games than their current haul of 60 and that was 66 in 2011-12 when they won the title.

    Manchester City have the best chance conversion in the Premier League scoring with 19.2% of their shots at goal.

    Manchester City have won 12 of their last 13 Premier League home games, the one loss coming to Fulham’s west London neighbours Chelsea.

    Fulham have won one of their last 11 Premier League away matches (W1 D2 L8).

    Fulham have scored nine goals from corners this season, more than any other team in the top flight.
