The Cottagers have won three of their last six matches, after beating Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield last weekend, to move within touching distance of safety in what is shaping up to be a thrilling fight for survival.

"A win like this galvanises, not that we needed it or a result to give us belief or an understanding of what we can do as it's constantly been there," said Fulham manager Scott Parker following their win at Liverpool. "What is happening around us, who we are dragging in, is irrelevant and remains to be the case.

"It is about us wanting to get better and keep moving in the right direction and that will not change.

"While results can give you that extra bit of belief, this is a team which has real belief. We will carry on for the remainder of the season in the same vein."

Despite surrendering their 15-match winning league run with a 2-0 loss at home to crosstown rivals Manchester United on Sunday, City remain firm favourites to win the league this season.

The Cityzens head into the week and back-to-back matches against Southampton and Fulham 11 points clear at the top.

"We will be the news because we lost. But the news is 21 victories in a row. We played much better than the game against West Ham which we won," City manager Pep Guardiola said following their defeat to United.

"We will try to win as many games as possible to be champions."
