Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester).

Manchester City finally took over Arsenal atop the Premier League table with a 1-2 victory over Fulham on Sunday afternoon at Craven Cottage.

The Citizens will now be looking for their ninth straight league success on Wednesday evening when they host West Ham in the postponed fixture of Gameweek No 28.

Manchester City are firing on all cylinders these days. They have bagged at least four goals in three of the previous five Premier League outings.

The remaining games saw them beat the lone title rivals Arsenal 3-1 and Fulham 1-2. The clash against the Cottagers was surprisingly difficult for Pep Guardiola’s team who needed a miraculous effort from World Cup winner Julian Alvarez to seal the deal in London at the weekend.

The two-time reigning champions will have a great chance to extend the winning thread and make another bit step towards defending their domestic crown here against West Ham whose back line had a horrendous day on Saturday.

The Hammers suffered a 4-3 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace in the first game of the Matchday No 34, marking their second successive loss.

David Moyes’ men are yet to confirm their top flight status being just five points above the relegation area ahead of this very tough game against the Citizens.
