Pep Guardiola's Manchester City will play their third final fixture of the League season this coming Saturday, and with the Premier League title race still neck-in-neck, an impressive win over Fulham will be needed. 

There are only a few weeks of the season remaining, and for Man City both the PL and FA Cup are in their contention. But, if they are to be successful in the League, they'll need to win all of their upcoming games as relying on Arsenal to drop points is a scenario that shouldn't be trusted upon.     

While the Cityzens have a huge task in a meeting with Tottenham in the week, their focus will be firmly on their game against Fulham. 

Pep Guardiola featured in the pre-game press conference; he started by informing the health of his players ahead of the game, "No, everything is fine." The manager has confirmed that there are no injury worries for the club to deal with, and all names will be available. 

Guardiola then addressed the scenario if Man United were to help them and get Arsenal to drop points, "I'm a City fan. Trying to beat Fulham, this is all I'm concerned about."

While there is a possibility that City's rivals could put a dampener on the title chances for the Gunners, in which would be their penultimate game of the season, Guardiola insists that their attention is only on their own results. 

Manchester City will go into the weekend in second spot, with 82 points (one behind Arsenal), but even though it seems like it's the Arsenal crown to lose, with City having an extra encounter, it can be said that it's actually City's League to lose.

After the Fulham game, City will then take on Spurs and on the final day, West ham. For Arsenal, on the last day, they play Everton, who have already done a big favour for City by pretty much eliminating Liverpool from the title race after beating them 2-0 a few weeks back, and maybe they could do the same again when they play Arsenal. 

But, as Guardiola told, the only thing that the club need to focus on is their own results, and if they are to win three/three, the title will definitely be theirs, without it mattering if Arsenal drop points or not. 

In their previous game, Man City overcame Wolverhampton Wanderer in an impressive 5-1 victory and will aim to do something in that manner again over Fulham.
