Manchester City will be looking to make it four wins out of four when they host Fulham in the Premier League this weekend.

Pep Guardiola's side are the only team in the division with a perfect record after three rounds of fixtures. They are already sitting at the summit of the standings and the fear for their competitors is that it will be hard to dislodge City if they begin to build up a lead at top spot.

City have perhaps not been at their dazzling best so far this season, but they have still won all three matches reasonably comfortably. They were given a late scare by Sheffield United last time out, but City were much the better team on the balance of play.

Fulham produced a battling display to hold Arsenal to a 2-2 draw in gameweek three. They took an early lead at the Emirates Stadium, but then fell 2-1 behind and were reduced to 10 men. 

Despite that, Marco Silva's side dug deep to find an equaliser and move on to four points for the campaign. They will now be looking to pull off another surprise result against the champions.

Kick-off is at 3pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:


ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
