The game between Manchester City and Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday, 27th February 2011 at 15:00 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
Man. City prepare to entertain Fulham at City of Manchester Stadium on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Sky Blues are clearly on top, having won 16 and lost only 6 of the 28 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at City of Manchester Stadium was just last season, in October 2009, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Premier League match.
