A game between two teams in vastly contrasting situations takes place down by the River Thames, as Fulham take on Manchester City (watch live on NBCSN, 10am ET and online via NBC Sports Live Extra) at Craven Cottage.

City have won five of their last six, while Fulham have only won once in their last eight PL games.

Will this one go to the Citizens and the form book?

In their last home match against Aston Villa, the Cottagers looked much more solid and dangerous going forward in a 2-0 win.
But defensively they’ll have to be on top of their game as City’s rampant offense turns up in West London.
