On the surface, Fulham looks like they’re outmatched against Manchester City. Still, City’s manager Manuel Pellegrini isn’t taking Fulham lightly.
“I think it is just a very tough game. All the teams in the last position – not only in the relegation positions but in the last position in the table in the second round (of fixtures) – try to add points everywhere,” Pellegrini said, via ESPN FC.
“A team like Fulham are used to defending and with Felix Magath – he always plays his teams with a lot of intensity – I am sure we need to work very hard during the 95 minutes if we want to win.
“That is why we start a very important week, but the most important game in this week is Fulham.
“I am talking to the players, trying to convince all of them it is always a difficult game.
“Maybe for important games, with the most important teams, the motivation is alone – you don’t need to talk too much.
“But in these kind of games, it is very important to play from the beginning as a final.”
