🔎 MansionBet Match Preview: Fulham (Emirates FA Cup - H)

Take an in-depth look at how City match up against Fulham as the West London outfit travel to Ashton Gate on Saturday in the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

🔴 OURSELVES

City head into this game off the back of an emphatic 3-2 win at home to Millwall after Andreas Weimann clinched a late winner to secure a hat-trick on Sunday afternoon.

Nigel Pearson will want to see his side show the same levels of bravery and dominance that were on display against Millwall as they look to progress further into the FA Cup.

After netting a hat-trick on Sunday, City's number 14 will be keen to continue his goal scoring form as he looks to add to his goal tally which is currently at 12. 

🧳 OUR OPPONENTS

Fulham travel to Ashton Gate after a 1-0 defeat at Craven Cottage to Sheffield United way back on the 20th December after the Cottagers had three games postponed due to Covid cases.  

Marco Silva will be keen to see his side progress into the Fourth Round of the Emirates FA Cup as they sit comfortably in 3rd in the Championship with games in hand. 

With 13 goal involvements already this season, Harry Wilson will be confident he can continue his fine form and top his 19 goal involvements from last season as Fulham play their first game of the New Year.

MATCH REWIND 

Result: Fulham 1-2 Bristol City
When: 21.09.16
Competition: EFL Cup

Lucas Piazon headed the hosts in front before Aaron Wilbraham’s delicate finish levelled things up on the stroke of half-time.

Then debutant goalkeeper Ivan Lucic made a name for himself, saving Cauley Woodrow’s 51st minute penalty to keep the scores level.

In the 90th minutes O’Dowda’s low cross picked out the near post run of Tammy Abraham, who was inevitably in the right place to force the ball over the line and send City into the last 16.

🎥 TAKE A LOOK BACK


👀 ONE TO WATCH

Harry Wilson 

The midfielder has registered 13 goal involvements as we head into the second half of the season. With six goals and seven assists, the 24-year-old has proved to be an influential figure for the Craven Cottage outfit. 

Wilson has featured in 20 league games this season which shows how much Marco Silva values him since he joined permanently from Liverpool in July 2021.

Despite being at Liverpool for six years the Welsh winger failed to make an appearance for the Merseyside club after he had five loan spells during his time on Merseyside. 

After successful loans at Hull City, Derby County, Bournemouth and Cardiff City it eventually earned Wilson the permanent move to Craven Cottage where he has also impressed.
