Sane sets Manchester City on way to Fulham win

Sane sets Manchester City on way to Fulham win

Pep Guardiola's champions remain in touch with early pacesetters Liverpool and Chelsea, two points off the Premier League summit in third.

Leroy Sane, recalled after being left out of the squad against Newcastle United, scored inside two minutes with a close-range finish after Fernandinho capitalised on sloppy passing from Fulham.

Leroy was so important, is so important, and will be so important for the club. At times last season, Bernardo appeared to be on the fringes of Pep Guardiola's revolution, but in his second season since his move from AS Monaco his class is abundantly evident and the coach said he was delighted.

"It's a challenge for him - not just for him, for everybody".

'Unfortunately, we didn't do a surprise today and if I analyse the game, Ryan played a good game and I believe it is good for him and for his development and for his experience'.

The playmaker, who is already considered one of the best foreign players to have featured in the Premier League, was the subject of interest from La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona at the time but doesn't regret picking City.

"He's a competitive guy". He was so professional last season and he had competition as well because Sterling could play in that position on the left.

Bernardo Silva dazzled with sublime close control before playing in Sterling - a combination of Bettinelli and his crossbar denying the England winger.

"Everybody is here because after three seasons, I want to work with them".

This week Apple announced the latest incarnations of its iPhone: the iPhone XS , the iPhone XS Max , and the iPhone XR . And unlike last year's iPhone X , which was the first to reach the $1000 milestone it didn't even cause online riots.

"That's not the case".

"The season will be judged in 11 months - not three weeks".

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

'He'll keep improving, there are many more good games to come from him'.

Guardiola also said City would not sell star man Kevin De Bruyne for a world record fee of £225m.

Sane, who joined City in 2016, finished last season with 10 goals and 15 assists in the league.

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

City were able to drop down a gear without surrendering any of their control over the game, and they continued to create chances too with Sterling and Jesus both failing to hit the target. "I don't think he has a release clause in his contract".
