Game info Manchester City x Fulham


Looking to take the lead in the Premier League, Manchester City faces Fulham this Saturday, November 5. The match, which will take place at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, is part of the plan for the fifteenth round of the 2022/2023 edition of the Premier League. The forecast is for the ball to start rolling at 15:00 UTC.


How does the 2022/2023 Premier League work?


The most visible national tournament in the world, the Premier League, has 20 clubs that play 38 rounds. Duel in turn and return throughout the season. Whoever accumulates the most points wins the cup. In principle, six places are awarded in international competitions. The top four guarantees a direct place in the Champions League group stage. The fifth goes to the Europa League. The sixth goes to the European Conference League. The last three are relegated to the Championship, the Second Division.


Manchester City

Last week, Manchester City experienced a scenario similar to that of the fifteenth round of the Premier League. Entered the field earlier than tournament leaders Arsenal. On Saturday, October 29, they beat Leicester 1-0 at King Power Stadium, spending the night at the top of the leaderboard. However, it was ousted by the Gunners the next day. The London club, playing at home, thrashed Nottingham Forest and sunk into the relegation zone 5-0.


With 29 points (nine wins, two draws, and one defeat), City returns to the field this Saturday as runners-up in the tournament and needs the victory to assume, even temporarily, the Premier League lead. This time, however, it has a much better chance, at least in theory, of lengthening its stay at the top. After all, Arsenal's Sunday, November 6 appointment is the London derby with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.


On Wednesday, November 2, at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City fulfilled the table of the sixth–final – round of the Champions League group stage. With his situation in the tournament already defined, he was at a disadvantage in the meeting with Sevilla from Spain, but he reacted and won by 2 to 1. Thus, he ended the campaign with 14 points (four wins and two draws) in the lead of the G group. He has a perfect home team campaign in the Premier League. He won all six games he played at home. He scored 27 goals and conceded six.



Fulham will step onto the Etihad Stadium lawn defending a four-match unbeaten streak. The series started on October 15. It had two draws and two wins in the period. The most recent item on that list was the goalless draw against Everton. The meeting was held on Saturday, October 29, at Craven Cottage.


The result was considered a stumbling block for Fulham. Not just for playing at home but for having done a superior performance. He had the ball under his control 57% of the time. In the period, he developed 24 chances to finish. He sent six of them on target. But he bumped into goalkeeper Pickford. However, he took some risks. The Liverpool team made nine shots, four of them in the right direction.


Fulham occupies the seventh position in the Premier League table with 19 points (five wins, four draws, and four defeats). Four points below Manchester United, fifth place, and the last club in the region that distributes places in international competitions for the 2022/2023 season. As a visitor, you maintain the same scoring pattern. It is also seventh in the Premier League rankings in this regard. Of the 18 points he played as column two, he won seven (two wins, one draw, and three defeats). He scored nine goals and conceded 11.
