Fulham vs Man City: Starting XIs for 2023/2024 EPL clash confirmed

Pep Guardiola has made just one change to the Man City side that thumped Wolves last time out, with Ruben Dias in for Kyle Walker, who drops to the bench.

Manuel Akanji moves to right-back but it’s as you were elsewhere, with Erling Haaland leading the attack after four goals in his last game.

Amid managerial complaints regarding injuries across the Premier League, Guardiola has nearly a full squad to choose from – only Jack Grealish is absent through illness.

Bobby De Cordova-Reid is the one player who comes into Marco Silva’s XI from the rather drab 0-0 draw at Brentford last weekend.

He replaces Sasa Lukic, who is ruled out with a minor calf issue. Harrison Reed has shaken off a knock of his own, but is only back on the bench.

Ex-Man City youngster Tosin Adarabioyo is again absent, as he nears his summer exit on a free transfer.
