Manchester City host Fulham at the Etihad in a game from the 4th round of the FA Cup
The holders of the trophy Manchester City host Fulham at the Etihad in a game from the 4th round of the FA Cup. In these sure win prediction today we will try to give you a good perspective on this fixture.
Manchester City did a pretty convincing job in the previous round of the FA Cup when they hosted Port Vale at the Etihad as well. The manager Josep Guardiola trusted young players like Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Phil Foden from the first minute and it proved to be a good idea. Harwood-Bellis scored one of the goals, while Phil Foden scored as well and made an assist. At the end City won the game with 4-1. Oleksandr Zinchenko and Sergio Aguero scored for the Cityzens, too.
The title race in the Premier League looks over now and at Man City they are aware that they don’t have any chances to beat Liverpool for the gold medals. This led the manager Guardiola to admit that his team will focus on the cup competitions they play for. The FA Cup is one of them.
Because of this, we expect to see a strong Manchester City lineup against Fulham on Sunday. The good news for Guardiola is the return of the centre back Aymeric Laporte, who was heavily missed because of an injury. The Frenchman started during the 1-0 win over Sheffield United few days ago.
Fulham on the other hand are currently playing in the Championship and they are currently third in the standings with 49 points. They are one of the best teams in the league right now, trying to win another promotion to the Premier League.
The Cottagers reached the 4th round of the FA Cup after a 2-1 win against another Premier League team – Aston Villa. That’s why City need to be careful here.
In our sure win prediction today we believe that Manchester City won’t underrestimate Fulham and they will take the win. How we said, City are fighting for every cup trophy they can win now, because of Liverpool’s domination in the Premier League.
