Fulham finished last season on the third place in the English Football League Championship with 88 points to their credit. The team went through to the Premier League after being victorious in the relegation play-offs fixtures. The Cottagers have had eight friendly matches this summer, they have won two of them (over Crawley Town with a 4-2 score, over Athletic Bilbao with a 3-1 score), have drawn two (against Reading with a 0-0 score, against Celta Vigo with a 2-2 score) and have lost four (to Fenerbahce with a 0-3 score, to Lyon with a 0-4 score, to Fiorentina with a 0-1 score, to Sampdoria with the same 0-1 score). In the 1/32-finals fixture of the Carabao Cup the team of Slavisa Jokanovic beat Exeter City with a 2-0 score. In their four matches of the 2018/2019 Premier League season the Whites won once (over Burnley with a 4-2 score), drew also once (against Brigton & Hove Albion with a 2-2 score) and lost two times (to Crystal Palace with a 0-2 score, to Tottenham Hotspur with a 1-3 score). Fulham have also had another friendly fixture recently where they have beaten ATK with a 1-0 score.
The last two matches between Manchester City and Fulham happened in the 2013/2014 Premier League season. The Citizens won both of those fixtures (4-2 on the away side, 5-0 on the hosting side). It is likely that the team of Pep Guardiola will get a confident victory over the Cottagers in the upcoming fixture too.
Prediction for the match: Manchester City to win with -2.0 handicap.
