Predicted Fulham line-up to face Manchester City in the League Cup
Fulham have been far from the side that made its way into the Premier League this season. The Cottagers are currently languishing in the relegation zone, having won just a single game in 10 fixtures so far.
Slavisa Jokanovic’s men now come up against Manchester City in the League cup this week. The Cityzens are on the back of another confident win against Tottenham Hotspur and are yet to concede a goal in the last 7 and a half hours of football.
Joe Bryan is the only one who will be unavailable for this game. Apart from that, Slavisa Jokanovic has a fully fit and firing squad to pick from. The manager will definitely make wholesale changes given that the kickoff is days before their Premier League clash against Huddersfield Town.
Probable Fulham XI
Manager: Slavisa Jokanovic
Marcus Bettinelli (GK)
The goalkeeper should take the place of Diego Rico in this game and will definitely be kept busy.
Cyrus Christie (RB)
Christie could take the place of Fosu-Mensah and aim to make the most out of the space on the flanks.
Alfie Mawson (CB)
Mawson should start at centre-back and his experience would help the Cottagers.
Tim Ream (CB)
Ream could partner Mawson at the back as he aims to build on his recent performances.
Le Marchand (LB)
The French defender was shifted to a left-back role last game and he should continue there though it is not the best option.
Tom Cairney (RCM)
Cairney could start this fixture as he aims to distribute the ball swiftly and dictate the play in the middle of the park.
Andre-Frank Anguissa (LCM)
Anguissa should partner Cairney in the middle of the park and his defensive duties need to be on point.
Luca De La Torre (RAM)
The youngster picked up a goal against Millwall in the last League Cup outing and will return to the line-up for this one.
Andre Schurrle (CAM)
Schurrle will sit behind the striker and his qualities will definitely pose some problems for the Cityzens at the back.
Luciano Vietto (LAM)
Vietto will start on the left-hand side of the attacking midfield. His passing has been impressive in the final third.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (ST)
Mitrovic will continue to lead the line given it’s Manchester City they are coming up against.
