No Gabriel Jesus? How Manchester City could line up against Fulham

Pep Guardiola should have a relatively full-strength side to pick from when his Manchester City team face Fulham in the FA Cup

With the Premier League title all but wrapped up for another season, Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City side can now turn their attention to the FA Cup.

On Saturday they face a Fulham side that will hope to cause all sorts of trouble, even if the English champions are at relatively full strength.

In defence, Guardiola is likely to stick with Zack Steffen in goals with Ederson still a doubt for the game following his late return from international duty.

Oleksandr Zinchenko is also still struggling with match fitness, so a back four of Joao Cancelo, Nathan Ake, John Stones and Kyle Walker is the most likely combination.

In midfield the Man City manager should be able to call upon a full roster of stars, which will likely mean Fernandinho in the defensive role, with Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin de Bruyne playing in front.

Like Ederson, Gabriel Jesus is likely to miss out due to returning from international duty a little too late, so Jack Grealish and a returning Riyad Mahrez should step into the side to support Phil Foden up front.
