Manchester City team news: Injury suspension list vs. Fulham

Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Manchester City ahead of Saturday's trip to Fulham, when they could return to the top of the table.

Manchester City have the chance to move back to the top of the Premier League table on Saturday when they take on relegation-threatened Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The champions spent the international break sitting second behind Liverpool, who moved two points clear with a win over the Cottagers while City were in FA Cup action.

City do now have a game in hand over Jurgen Klopp's side, but victory this weekend might only be enough to lift them top for a temporary spell with Liverpool playing on Sunday.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Pep Guardiola's side.
