The Manchester City vs Fulham live stream is a fascinating FA Cup match-up between the runaway leaders of the Premier League and the runaway leaders of the Championship.
Man City currently sit nine points ahead of Liverpool in the Premier League and look like Champions-elect. But Pep Guardiola will still be eager to add yet more silverware to that bulging trophy cabinet, and given he's only won the FA Cup once he may feel like he has unfinished business in this competition.
With his team having just enjoyed a domestic break, he may well be tempted to play a full-strength team here before the Premier League resumes in midweek. That said, the riches in the Man City squad mean that almost any team he picks will be close to full-strength. After all, does it really matter whether he plays Jack Grealish or Raheem Sterling? Riyad Mahrez or Phil Foden? Kevin de Bruyne or Gabriel Jesus? As it happens, most of them start today, with Sterling on the bench and Jesus left out entirely.
For Fulham, the stakes are slightly different. While they'd dearly love to show that they can go toe-to-toe with the big boys, they'll also have an eye on that Championship run-in. They lead Blackburn by 5pts, but that's not a lot and they won't want to jeopardise that with an FA Cup that ends in in a couple of rounds' time. Injuries can happen at any time and can turn a season, after all.
Then again, the chance to beat the Premier League leaders doesn't come around often, and Fulham's attacking football under Marco Silva has impressed many onlookers. Aleksandar Mitrovic, in particular, has excelled, scoring 28 times this season, while 19-year-old winger Fabio Carvalho has attracted attention from a host of top clubs. Expect them to give it a real go at the Etihad.
Here's how they line up:
Man City: Steffen, Walker, Stones, Ake, Cancelo, Fernandinho (C), De Bruyne, Gundogan, Mahrez, Foden, Grealish
Fulham: Gazzaniga, Williams, Tosin, Ream, Bryan, Reed, Chalobah, Wilson, Carvalho, Kabano, Mitrovic
