first_imgFulham’s renewed confidence under Rene Meulensteen is again on display but both sides have had great opportunities to break the deadlock.The Whites have dominated large parts of the first 20 minutes, zipping the ball around on a greasy Craven Cottage surface and unsettling Manchester City with their high tempo.Adel Taarabt, playing in an unfamiliar lone striker role with Dimitar Berbatov injured, produced a fine save from recalled City and England keeper Joe Hart after Kieran Richardson had made mincemeat of stand-in right-back Gael Clichy.But City responded by sweeping upfield and although Edin Dzeko couldn’t make the most of Alvaro Negredo’s cross, he laid the ball off to David Silva, who struck the crossbar.Fulham (4-5-1): Stekelenburg; Riether, Senderos, Hughes, Riise; Dejagah, Karagounis, Parker, Sidwell, Richardson; Taarabt.Subs: Stockdale, Amorebieta, Kasami, Kacaniklic, Duff, Ruiz, Bent.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
