Manchester City v Fulham live stream and match preview
Looking for a Manchester City v Fulham live stream? We've got you covered with our handy guide.
Manchester City can provisionally go top of the Premier League table with a win over Fulham at the Etihad on Saturday, as Pep Guardiola’s side look to extend their unbeaten run to five games.
The Citizens bounced back from defeat at Liverpool in mid-October by beating Brighton and Leicester on league duty and picking up four points from their final two Champions League games against Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla to top their group.
Guardiola’s men head into the weekend two points behind league leaders Arsenal, but will leapfrog them with a win here to put pressure on the Gunners ahead of their trip to Chelsea on Sunday.
City are unbeaten in 14 games at home, while there are further statistics that will fill the Cottagers with dread: Fulham haven’t won any of their last 14 Premier League meetings with the Citizens, while they’ve lost the last 12 in all competitions.
Fulham are enjoying a fine season so far, though, and sit seventh, two points behind Chelsea.
Marco Silva’s men are unbeaten in their last four Premier League outings, picking up wins over Aston Villa and Leeds between draws at home to Bournemouth and most recently Everton.
The big news for Manchester City is that Erling Haaland returns to the squad – although the Premier League top scorer only makes the bench, with Julian Alvarez retaining his starting spot. In fact, there's just the one change for the hosts: Aymeric Laporte replaces Nathan Ake at centre-back.
As for Fulham, Kenny Tete replaces the suspended Bobby Decordova-Reid at right-back, while Vinicius deputises up front for Aleksandar Mitrovic – who missed out due to an ankle issue.

Kick-off and channel
Kick-off is at 3:00pm BST on Saturday 5 November and the game is not being shown in the UK. See below for international broadcast options.
Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, and FourFourTwo currently recommends:
