Fulham will be determined to snatch points from Manchester City, who have only managed to pick up draws in their last two Premier League encounters.

Fulham will be eager to capitalise on Manchester City's recent struggle to grab a victory when they meet at Craven Cottage this weekend.

The Premier League champions have recorded draws in their last two Premier League clashes and they were dumped out of the League Cup this week courtesy of a 4-2 win by Aston Villa.

The Cottagers have been boosted by the summer acquisition of former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov, who is expected to start on Saturday, while manager Martin Jol is likely to also call on Hugo Rodallega to play up top alongside the forward.

Meanwhile, Roberto Mancini could opt for a forward three of Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Scott Sinclair, which would drop Edin Dzeko and Mario Balotelli to the bench.

David Silva, Yaya Toure and Javi Garcia could be placed in the middle of the park, while Gareth Barry may be used as a substitute during the game.

Recent form:

Fulham: WLLWW
Manchester City: DWDDL

Possible lineups:

Fulham: Schwarzer; Riether, Hughes, Hangeland, Riise; Duff, Baird, Sidwell, Kacaniklic; Rodallega, Berbatov

Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy; Garcia, Toure, Silva; Sinclair, Aguero, Tevez

Sports Mole says: 1-2
