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.

Fulham have lost just once in their last six home games, winning four and drawing the other one. A total of 9 goals have been scored by the Cottagers in those games, with 5 conceded.

In complete contrast to Fulham, Man. City are having a torrid time on their travels, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Sky Blues have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.
