Read more at www.independent.co.uk

Manchester City are hosting Fulham at the Etihad Stadium today as Pep Guardiola’s side look to build on their 5-0 thrashing of Burnley last weekend. Riyad Mahrez scored a hat-trick that day while Kevin De Bruyne looked his majestic best as City completely dominated and finally looked back to their best in front of goal, so it will be a tough challenge for Fulham this afternoon.

Scott Parker’s side do at least have their own confidence building win to look back on last weekend after successfully countering Leicester City to win 2-1. The Fulham manager will hope a similar blueprint here can inspire another huge performance from his side as they look to keep their heads above the relegation zone.
