City already look to have relinquished their two-season hold on the Premier League title.

Even having played two games more than Liverpool, the Sky Blues are still trailing them by 13 points, and a third successive league title already looks a step too far for Pep Guardiola's side.

As a result, the cup competitions will hold City's focus for the remainder of the campaign.

Championship side Fulham visit the Etihad Stadium on a fine run of form.

They have lost just one of their last seven in all competitions and knocked Aston Villa out of the FA Cup in the third round.

Had Fulham been hosting City at Craven Cottage, they would be confident of causing an upset, or at least forcing a replay.

However, visiting City will prove a challenge for Scott Parker and his side, especially as Fulham have lost each of their last eight fixtures against the champions.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are without an FA Cup trophy since 2006 and haven't reached the final since 2012.

A spot in the fifth round of the 2019-20 tournament seems inevitable, though, given they visit League One's Shrewsbury on Sunday.

Manager Jurgen Klopp will make changes for the fixture, but even with a second-string side, the Reds were able to get past rivals Everton in the third round.

Liverpool can seemingly do no wrong at the moment and will be on a huge high after last weekend's victory against Manchester United.
