Date/Time: Saturday 29 September 2012, 19:30
Place: Craven Cottage (London)
Referee: M. Halsey
The Cottagers has never lost in home ground from last five Premier league and this term also they won all the matches played in Craven Cottage. Fulham is sharing their points with Manchester City in points table, but with goal difference the Cottagers is ahead of them. This is good advantage for them to play this game.
Good winning percentage will boost their game in home ground against defending champions. If they play with good defensive game, Fulham have the chance to avoid concede the goal and move forward from current position. Top scorer in club is midfielder Damien Duff and his performance in Home ground is quite well. Striker Dimitar Berbatov is standing next to Duff in top scorer list.
Manchester City’s journey in Premier League as well as in all competition is not good so far. Their last match against Arsenal in their home ground finished with draw and they lost against Aston Villa by 2-4 in extra time of Carling Cup. Champion League defeat against Real Madrid is still continuing in their journey.
Even though City failed for positive result, they played all the game with good effort and tactics. Yaya Toure is playing a rough and hard game against opponents and he is helping strikers to score. Carlos Tavez is an all-time star of Manchester City and his last minute goals helped them in many ways to survive in major tournaments.
Edin Dzeko is top scorer of The Citizens so far and striker Mario Balotelli is playing with good finishing and energy.
Fulham has good record in home ground, but they need to fight hard to stop team like Manchester City. Attacking force of Manchester City will be a challenging for defenders of The Cottagers. A good defensive game will helpFulham from defeat against Chmapions.
Fulham 0-2 Manchester City
