Have Fulham Ever Beaten Man City, What’s Their Records Against City?

Many Arsenal fans might be asking ‘have Fulham ever beaten Man City’? As they hope for a favourable result on Saturday. Yes, Fulham have beaten Manchester City, but that was more two decades ago.

Manchester City under the leadership of Pep Guardiola has emerged as a formidable team in English football, striking fear into the hearts of struggling clubs grappling to withstand the relentless demands of the league.

Hence, it will prove to be a challenging task for Fulham, currently positioned 13th in the league standings, to either secure a victory or even a draw against the formidable Cityzens. While football is known for its unpredictability, it would indeed be astonishing if City were to concede points to Fulham at this point of the season.

Manchester City are on the verge of securing their fourth consecutive league title, with just three wins separating them from the coveted championship. A triumph over Fulham would propel them to the top of the standings, placing them two points ahead of Arsenal, who are set to face Manchester United at Old Trafford this Sunday.
