Fulham face a massive task at Man City
Cottagers could find the net
If there is a good time to play the top teams it could be now, just after the international break and just before the Champions League group stage begins. But even under these circumstances Fulham face a difficult task.
The Cottagers do not look like a side who can shut up shop, so they might as well play their normal game and look to hurt the hosts.
A goal for the visitors is a strong possibility but Man City are a stronger attacking force and should take the points.

Raheem Sterling (back) is available but Danilo lacks match fitness and Kevin De Bruyne and Claudio Bravo are out long-term.
Tom Cairney (foot), Neeskens Kebano (ankle) and Tim Ream (thigh) are sidelined.
Fulham have scored in all of their last 12 away league games.
