Manchester City eyeing a fightback

With Premier League leaders Manchester United not playing until tomorrow, champions Manchester City can close to within four points of their title rivals by beating Fulham today.

United have looked imperious in recent weeks, picking up 31 points from a possible 33 to establish a seven-point lead over second-place City, who have let 10 points slip over the same period.

However, United visit Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow, who have lost just once in 10 matches and who won 3-2 at Old Trafford when the sides last met in September. With third-place Chelsea also preparing for a problematic assignment at home to Arsenal on the same day, City will hope this weekend marks the start of their fightback in the title race.
