Manchester City can haul themselves back into contention for the Premier League title when host Fulham at the Etihad Stadium.

City begin the afternoon in the lower half of the league table but a win on home turf would see them go within just three points of early pace setters Tottenham Hotspur after 10 games.

Meanwhile, the Cottagers suffered a tough start to the campaign, though a recent confidence-boosting victory over Leicester City sees Scott Parker’s men in a rich vein of form having now climbed outside the relegation zone.
