On the latest edition of the Green Pole, Alan Drewett, Frankie Taylor and Kieron Tibbett discuss just how Fulham can go about trying to take something home from Saturday’s trip to Manchester City.

The Whites haven’t won at the Etihad Stadium since a Clint Dempsey double back in the Roy Hodgson days after Dickson Etuhu had equalised with a stunning strike against the club that gave him a chance. Their record in recent years has been appalling but Marco Silva was clear during his pre-match press conference that he will send his side out with similar instructions to the Cup tie between the sides earlier this year.

Our panel ponders how the Cottagers can cope in the absence of Neeskens Kebano following yesterday’s dreadful news that the Congolese winger has ruptured his Achilles tendon in training. Dan James could come in, with Manor Solomon just beginning training having sustained a serious injury shortly after his first Fulham appearance against Liverpool in August. The lads are realistic about the prospect of getting a result against Pep Guardiola’s side – and listen out for a late cameo from birthday boy Freddie that should put a smile on your face.
