Sané strikes early as dominant Man City brush Fulham aside

Sané strikes early as dominant Man City brush Fulham aside

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Arsenal on Sunday, September 2, produced superb performance in their Premier League game beating Cardiff City 3-2 in a tough encounter.

"We cannot forget sometimes this kind of thing happens, he is [young] and sometimes you can be up and down at that age".

Bernardo Silva was the pick of a brilliant bunch, David Silva marked his 350th game for City with his 50th goal in the Premier League and rumours of Leroy Sane's demise have, evidently, been greatly exaggerated. He has to realise for himself like a professional he has to do.

Bernardo Silva staked his claim for a place even more emphatically, earning the man-of-the-match award after pulling the strings with aplomb on Saturday.

"It is nearly impossible to be more pleased as a manager with him".

But Fulham bowed to the inevitable in the 21st minute after more outstanding play from Bernardo who held off Stefan Johansen's strong challenge and pulled the ball back for Sergio Aguero whose effort was blocked by Odoi. He is a good example for us, for all the guys. Pep Guardiola will be without star player Kevin De Bruyne through injury but Raheem Sterling is reportedly fit to start against the Londoners.

"Something in the ankle, when he fell down, he felt something".

Liverpool and Chelsea make Premier League history
He is an incredibly compact player - very neat and tidy with the ball with an excellent eye for a penetrating pass. I'm sure he'll have that today when he comes on and on Tuesday as well".

- Fulham have registered their second worst start to a Premier League campaign after five games (4pts, -5 goal difference); only bettering 2011-2012 (3 pts, -3 goal difference). "Tomorrow we will see how he wakes up [for Lyon]".

"But we were aggressive when we had the ball and we created chances".

Fabian Delph, who filled in for Mendy, added: "It's nice to get going again after the World Cup - we only got 12 days off".

"How we start the game, how we start the second half, it didn't make it easy for ourselves fighting for something positive". Pep Guardiola had said his team would get fully up to speed after the worldwide break and so they are.

Fulham, whose attacking play showed moments of promise, finally forced Ederson into a couple of saves from shots by Andre Schurrle.

And it's fair to say that the result is emphatic in favour of the great Barcelona side of 2011.

"We didn't find our best level or our flawless level, and without this level at this place it is not easy to play football".
