Manchester City are unbeaten in their last four matches, netting six goals on their way to beating league leaders Arsenal last weekend. They're now within three points of the top of the table, and should march on with a victory away at struggling Fulham this weekend.
If the Fulham fans were expecting new manager René Meulensteen to spark an immediate revival, they'll be disappointed. The Cottagers lost 4-1 to Everton on the back of a 2-0 win over Aston Villa last weekend, and are now second-bottom of the table. It's hard to see them salvaging anything against a City team impressively well-endowed in attack.
However, the visitors will be without their star man Sergio Agüero though injury, as well as right-backs Pablo Zabaleta and Micah Richards. Stevan Jovetić and Matija Nastasić both face late fitness tests. For Fulham, Hugo Rodallega and Brede Hangeland are suspended, while Fernando Amorebieta is doubtful with a hamstring problem.
