Manchester City are looking for their first back-to-back win this season as Pep Guardiola's side host Fulham on matchday 11 at Etihad Stadium. (More Football News)
City, strangely lying at 11th in the points table, hammered their favourite whipping boys Burnley 5-0 at home in the last league outing. But the Citizens played out a goalless draw at Porto in their penultimate UEFA Champions League, Group C match midweek.
The match against visiting Fulham will be another test for Pep, who will take charge of his 700th game. The Cottagers' visit to Manchester will also mark Pep's 250th match at the City helm.
In his 699 matches to date, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has tasted victory 506 times and lost just 82 of those, leaving him with a stunning win percentage of 72.4.
In his landmark match, Pep will however be without their record goalscorer, Sergio Aguero. But the Spaniard will most likely have both Raheem Sterling, who left out of the City starting line-up for their last two league games, and Phil Foden, who is primed to make his 50th league appearances, at some stage of the game.
Fulham boss Scott Parker also has no major injury concern after their massive 2-1 win at Leicester City. And he's likely to continue to rotate the squad, meaning both Aleksander Mitrovic and skipper Tom Cairney could start against City.
Head-to-head: City are looking for their tenth straight win against Fulham. The last time they met in March 2019, City won 2-0.
