Four fixtures into the new season Liverpool, Chelsea, and Watford remain the only clubs not to have dropped any points. Therefore, …it doesn’t take a genius to work out that it is essential (as ever) for last season’s Centurions to collect all three points against Premier League new boys, Fulham this Saturday.

3 Things Manchester City Need To Do To Stop Fulham Scoring

Aleksandar Mitrovic

The 23-year-old Serbia striker is on FIRE- he scored two for his country against Romania a couple of days ago, and on top of that, the former Newcastle United striker has netted Fulham four goals already this season.

Premier League top goal scorers

If Fulham are to score it is highly likely it will be Mitrovic.

City will need to defend in numbers

Who knows how Pep Guardiola will play this, however, my way of thinking is that City will have Mendy on the left, Kyle Walker on the right with either Vinny and or John Stones in the defensive middle.

Whatever happens, the lads will be kept busy.

Poll

Last seasons Championship play-off winners Fulham have nothing to lose and everything to win. They will play ‘without fear’ and will probably pass the ball with oodles of confidence, especially after their 4-2 win over Burnley just before the international break.

Ederson

In my eyes, Ederson is the best keeper we’ve had at City in years and so if MCFC is to stop Fulham from scoring he’s the leading man for the job.

City’s strike force

On Wednesday of this week, Sergio Aguero went on record to say his fitness is “the best in years” after a knee operation in April. He’s lost weight, looks ‘mean’ and ‘on-form.’

Kun will probably start while the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, and Riyad Mahrez will more than likely cause the Cottagers plenty of misery.

Score prediction

Manchester City 4-1 Fulham.
