Pellegrini’s men welcome rock-bottom Cottagers in a tricky game where both teams can’t allow any points drop, especially the visiting team who last weekend finally manage to taste a feel of win under their new manager, Felix Magath. It was a 1-0 win over Newcastle United , and a precious win which ended the Cottagers nine-match winless streak.
This Saturday, Magath’s men expects a lot more difficult game, as they visit Manchester City “fortress”, where the Blues rarely lose any points. In situation where the hunt for the title is still ON, Citizens can’t allow any drop of points, while Fulham needs an upset to move from the bottom. This must-must situation will make this game a much more interesting but with City attacking pedigree anything but another home win would be a big surprise.
