Manchester City can return to the top of the Premier League – for 24 hours at least – with victory over Fulham.
City are two points back of Liverpool in the table, with a game in hand, and have a chance to turn up the pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s men ahead of their clash with Tottenham at Anfield.
Pep Guardiola’s squad will be bolstered by the return of Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho, John Stones, Benjamin Mendy, Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi at Craven Cottage.
Utility man Fabian Delph and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo are the only absentees for the champions.
Fulham have just seven games to save their Premier League status, which is now precarious. They sit 13 points from safety after losing their last seven matches.
Tim Ream and Jean Michael Seri must prove their fitness for Fulham.
USA defender Ream and Ivory Coast midfielder Seri have missed the majority of training this week due to the international break, and will now be assessed ahead of Saturday’s match. Defender Alfie Mawson remains sidelined with a knee injury.
