Manchester City v Fulham

Published on: 04 December 2020

Scott Parker's Fulham side are vying for successive Premier League wins after beating Leicester on MondayTEAM NEWS

Manchester City will again be without Sergio Aguero, who has only started two league matches since suffering a serious knee injury in June.

Nathan Ake returned to the substitutes bench on Tuesday after three weeks out with a hamstring problem.

Fulham head coach Scott Parker has a fully-fit squad aside from long-term absentee Kenny Tete.

Defender Tosin Adarabioyo, who signed from Manchester City in September, is set to feature against his former club.

LAWRO'S PREDICTION

Fulham got a really good win against Leicester - they played very, very well.

Scott Parker's side are easy on the eye and that's a big tick for him. However, I don't think they'll have much of the ball against Manchester City.

The Cottagers aren't ones to park the bus in front of teams, but the only chance they have against Pep Guardiola's side is by having possession because they're not very good at the back.

It's also worth remembering that City have won their past nine matches against Fulham and scored a hatful of goals in the process.

I wouldn't say it's a 'free fixture' but if Fulham get beaten 3-0 or 4-0 it won't raise eyebrows.

Prediction: 4-0
