Fulham's injury list includes goalkeeper Marek Rodak and midfielder Tom Cairney so Parker has very few selection concerns for the visit of City.

Club captain Tom Cairney has returned to training having been absent since December with a long-term knee problem.

However, Parker confirmed on Thursday that Saturday's match will come too soon for the midfielder and he could have a spell with the under-23s to regain match fitness.

The Fulham manager has options in abundance on the substitutes bench, with Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Andre Zambo Anguissa all pushing for starts.
But it would be incredibly harsh to drop any of the XI who started in Sunday's victory at Liverpool.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Tete, Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina; Decordova-Reid, Lemina, Reed, Lookman; Maja, Cavaleiro

With Nathan Ake now back in the fold and available for selection, Man City are blessed with a fully-fit squad for this weekend's fixture, and changes will be afoot with next week's Champions League battle in mind.

John Stones has been benched more frequently in the past few weeks but will hope to earn a recall to Guardiola's first XI here, while Joao Cancelo and Rodri are also likely to return despite the congested fixture list.

Sergio Aguero is still being eased back into action so could be restricted to an appearance from the bench once again, while Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling - the latter of whom boasts 10 goals in 16 Premier League trips to London - may be trusted from the first whistle.

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling
