Manchester City vs Fulham: Preview and Possible XI

Manchester City V Fulham

  • Venue: Etihad Stadium
  • Date: Thursday, November 1,
  • Kick-off time: 7:45 BST

Manchester City’s defence of their League Cup crown continues at home to Fulham on Thursday.

The Citizens will be aiming for a repeat of the last time they met the Cottagers, the English champions running out 3-0 winners at the Etihad.


Ilkay Gundogan (hamstring) remains doubtful. The Germany midfielder limped off against Hoffenheim in our 2-1 Champions League victory. Danilo (ankle) is also likely to be absent, having sustained a knock on international duty.

Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is a long-term absentee, having sustained an Achilles tendon injury. The Chilean ‘keeper underwent scans, which confirmed a rupture in the tendon of his left foot.

Joe Bryan (hamstring) is the Cottagers’ only doubt.
