Kyle Walker: Fulham does possess a threat on the break, and that should see Walker start today. His pace may be crucial at times today.

Manuel Akanji: The Swiss defender has formed a partnership with Nathan Ake at the heart of City’s defence in recent games. They should resume their pairing given their recent form.

Mateo Kovacic: The partnership between Kovacic and Rodri appears to bring out the best in Pep Guardiola’s side. There doesn’t seem to be a reason to break it up at Craven Cottage today.

Kevin De Bruyne: De Bruyne has been in stellar form of late. He should start again today given the importance of today’s game.

Bernardo Silva: Another automatic selection for Pep Guardiola. He will likely line up on the right-wing for today’s match.

Phil Foden: The England international has been one of City’s best players this season and will have a vital role to play over the next week. That should see him start today against Fulham.

Erling Haaland: City‘s star striker scored 4 against Wolves last week and appears primed for the final week of the Premier League season. With the form he is in, he could be the decisive factor in today’s game.
