Man City Look to Secure Another Win as Fulham Face Uphill Battle: Match Preview

Manchester City's Dominance Set to Continue Against Fulham: Preview and Predictions

In the Premier League clash, reigning champions Manchester City are gearing up to face Fulham this Saturday. With a flawless start to the 2023-24 campaign, Pep Guardiola's City aim to defend their Premier League title and maintain their winning streak.

Having secured nine points from their initial three matches, including victories against Burnley, Newcastle, and Sheffield United, the Cityzens are heavily favoured to extend their winning spree to a perfect 12 points this weekend.

Despite their recent victory at Bramall Lane, where they weren't at their absolute best, Man City displayed remarkable resilience, a hallmark of their success under Guardiola's guidance. Even in Guardiola's absence due to minor back surgery, City maintained 80% possession and unleashed 30 shots on goal, ultimately securing a late victory through Rodri's 88th-minute goal.

While facing Fulham, Coach Juanma Lillo will be back on the touchline, and City's impressive record against Fulham might bode well for their chances. Having clinched victory in each of their previous 14 encounters in all competitions, City seem to hold a strong advantage.

Nevertheless, similar optimistic expectations were set for Arsenal in their recent match against Fulham, and they couldn't secure a victory on their home turf. Fulham showcased determination by managing a draw against Arsenal, even with Calvin Bassey's expulsion from the game. After a mixed performance, including a fortunate win against Everton and a lacklustre loss to Brentford, Fulham will be keen on putting up a resilient fight.

Manchester City's dominance in the league this season is undeniable, with a staggering 61 goal attempts, 21 of which were on target. Unfortunately for Marco Silva's Fulham, they've conceded the highest number of shots on target in the Premier League this season - 27 in total, which is six more than newly promoted Sheffield United.

With a track record of winning by an aggregate score of 22-2 in their last seven home encounters with Fulham, Manchester City are expected to secure another comprehensive victory [3-0 to the hosts]. Will the reigning champions continue their dominant form, or can Fulham pull off an unexpected upset? Well, we will have to wait and watch the exciting clash between the two sides.
