The game between Fulham and Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday, 6th December 2008 at 12:45 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
Fulham prepare to entertain Manchester City at Craven Cottage at lunchtime on Saturday, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 25 games played, Cottagers have recorded 11 wins, and Man. City have come away with 7 victories.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was just last season, in September 2007, when they fought out a thrilling high-scoring 3-3 draw in a Premier League match.
