Manchester City will play at home against Fulham in the 15th round of the championship of England. The match will take place on November 5.
The reigning champion of England major club Manchester City approaches this match against Fulham as a full-fledged defender of his golden title. However, it is to the defensive game of the Mancunian “citizens” can be a lot of complaints during the course of this season. In the tone of the recent confrontations between Josep Guardiola’s charges and: Manchester United 6-3 in a landmark home derby, Crystal Palace 4-2 (at the Etihad), Aston Villa 1-1, Brighton 3-1 (at home) and Spain’s Sevilla 3-1 in the UEFA Champions League (at home stadium). In matches where Man City’s mixed teammates were very much in front!
As for Fulham, they look quite good in the current APL for their rookie status in the competition. It’s a great attacking side, stubbornly pushing forward into the prestigious Eurocup zone. Simply at times terrorizing and tearing up someone else’s defense. In the example of the extreme clashes of the London “dachshunds” with: Leeds United 3-2 (away), Aston Villa 3-0, Bournemouth 2-2 and Nottingham Forest 3-2 (away). By the way, a powerful Fulham attack, led by super striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, scored in the current championship by about 2 goals per game, on average!
Manchester City and Fulham crossed paths with each other last season, also at the Etihad. And then, in the FA Cup, the Citizens managed to take the lead with a hockey score of 4-1. I expect this time, too, a goal from the very productive “cottagers” in the attack for a very solid odds. In conclusion I should add that in the current championship Fulham has beaten the defense and all the giants, which he faced – namely, Arsenal 1:2 (away), Liverpool 2:2 and Tottenham 1:2 (away)!
