Man City vs Fulham

Manchester City’s next game will be away to Fulham on March 30th after the international break.

It is not yet known if Otamendi will have recovered in time to face the relegation battling side.

Man City also slipped off top spot this weekend as Liverpool beat Fulham 2-1 while City played in the FA Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s side will go back top of the league if they win their game in hand on Liverpool but they will also face some tough tests in Tottenham and Man United in their final eight games.
