Manchester City is set to take on newly promoted side Fulham in the premier league on Saturday, 15th September 2018 at Etihad Stadium. This will be the first premier league weekend after the rather intense international break and it will be interesting to see how clubs cope with players returning from international duty. Manchester City playing at home against Fulham should be favourites to take all three points and continue their pursuit at top of the table alongside Liverpool and Chelsea.
Fulham’s visit to Manchester City stadium will be an 3pm kickoff which means no tv coverage in the UK. However international viewers can catch the match live through their local cable/online networks. NBCSN will have the match live through their official online platforms.
Manchester City vs Fulham Preview: On paper, City should cruise through this game and take another three points and continue their undefeated run this season. However this international break is different than the previous seasons as newly formed UEFA Nations League took place in first couple of weeks in September and many top European nations played rather competitive games. Those matches are likely to take alot more from the players compared to other friendly international breaks. So it will be interesting how big teams cope with players returning to club duties.
Fulham have shown they can be a threat this season to any side although they have lost 2 of the opening four games and not many people expect them to take anything away from Etihad Stadium. But if they can frustrate City just like Wolverhamton did a few weeks back they will be in with a chance to get something out of this game.
Match Predictions: Well it will be foolish to expect anything but a win for City playing at Etihad against a newly promoted side. But premier league is about to enter what will be a very rough period for top 6 teams as games come thick and fast and that will have effect on teams performance. These are the kind of games where teams like Fulham can take advantage. However I am going with another easy win for Manchester City in this one specially with the form Aguero is in at the moment.
