History of the Fulham v Manchester City fixture

Man City face a trip to Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 21 games played, Sky Blues have recorded 6 wins, and Fulham have come away with 10 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2003, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Premiership match.
