How Manchester City could line up against Fulham

Sports Mole looks at how Manchester City could line up in Sunday's FA Cup fourth-round tie with Fulham at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City will be looking to maintain their impressive FA Cup run when they welcome Fulham to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's men lifted the cup last season and have won their last seven matches in the competition, scoring 30 goals and conceding just four during that run.

After seeing off Port Vale in round three, next up for City is another home tie against a Fulham side that eliminated Aston Villa to reach this stage.

Ahead of this weekend's clash, Sports Mole looks at how Guardiola may set out his side.

Aymeric Laporte made his welcome return from a five-month layoff in the 1-0 league win over Sheffield United on Tuesday - City's first clean sheet in six matches.

The France international made his comeback earlier than expected and is likely to be eased back in, meaning Stones - carrying a minor knock - could slot into the backline to provide some experience.

Eric Garcia and Taylor Harwood-Bellis are both pushing for inclusion at the back, meanwhile, with the latter getting the nod against Port Vale earlier this month.

Fellow youngster Phil Foden, a regular in these cup matches, has been directly involved in nine goals in eight appearances against lower-league opposition.

Up top, Sergio Aguero came off the bench to score the winner against United and may be brought back in for Gabriel Jesus, though Guardiola could start both of his recognised strikers.
