What to Know

Manchester City have the best defense in the Premier League allowing only 21 total goals so far this season, so Fulham will have their work cut out for them especially considering that only three teams have scored fewer than their 22 goals.

In attack City are equally as dominant, and their 61 goals scored lead the league and they'll be attacking a surprising resilient Fulham defense which has only given up 33 goals, good for ninth in the Premier League. 

Fulham are coming off a shock 1-0 on Sunday against Liverpool where a first half goal from midfielder Mario Lemina was enough to get the job done while City just put five past Southampton in a 5-2 victory one match after Manchester United broke their historic unbeaten streak.

The wins brought Man City up to 21-3-5 and Fulham to 5-12-11. Man City is 15-2-3 after wins this season, Fulham 0-2-2.
