There’s no doubt Manchester City will look to keep the pressure on the top when they travel to face struggling Fulham later today.
A much changed Citizen side claimed a place in the semi-final of the Capital One cup midweek when they beat Leicester 3-1 at the King Power Stadium. The win was the club’s third on the trot and also took saw their 29th goal in their last 8 games.
The win came at a cost however with influential right back Pablo Zabaleta suffering a hamstring injury. The Argentine is likely to miss the clash at Craven Cottage this weekend and could also miss the top of the table clash with Liverpool on Boxing Day.
The absence of Zabaleta means that Pellegrini has a defensive headache ahead of the trip to London with Micah Richards also out. Dedryck Boyata came on against Leicester and the 23 year old Belgian is likely to step into breach once again on Saturday.
Pellegrini will also be without top scorer Sergio Aguero following the calf injury he suffered against Arsenal. The in-form striker is likely to out for up to 2 months with Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic vying to fill the gap.
Dzeko is the favourite for a starting role this weekend especially after his two goals against the Championship side.
City are likely to recall a number of those rested for the midweek win with Yaya Toure, stopper Costel Pantilmon, Fernandinho, Alvaro Negredo, Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy all set to start.
Fulham meanwhile lost 4-1 to Everton last time out although they did win their first league game at home under new manager Rene Muelensteen, beating Aston Villa 2-0.
The Cottagers have already lost five of their home games this season however and with doubts emerging over the futures of Dimitar Berbatov and Bryan Ruiz in recent weeks Muelensteen will hope he can galvanise his side ahead of the clashes with rivals Norwich, Hull and West Ham.
The club are set to be boosted by the return of Darren Bent following his cameo at Goodison Park while Fernando Amorebieta could feature after overcoming a hamstring injury.
Brede Hangeland and Matthew Briggs are all recovering well from back and hernia injuries but still some way off a first team return while Hugo Rodallega has returned to training and will be assessed before the game.
Manchester City won 2-1 when the two sides in this fixture last season with Dzeko scoring the winner with three minutes remaining.
Elsewhere, Brendan Roger’s Liverpool should have too much for Cardiff City at Anfield, with Luis Suarez almost certain to be amongst the goals, while David Moyes and Manchester United will be looking to continue their recent improvement with victory over West Ham at Old Trafford, which makes up the 5/1 treble on offer.
