Sane stars as Man City prove too strong for Fulham

The German worldwide claimed an early opening goal before further efforts from David Silva and Raheem Sterling maintained City's unbeaten start to the campaign in effortless fashion.

Manchester City comfortably defeated Fulham 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday to stay within two points of leaders Liverpool and Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola made four changes to his side, including a first Premier League start of the season for Sane, and the out-of-favour Germany worldwide took just 97 seconds to make his impact.

That record appears to belong to Preston fan Bernard Jones, 105, who led his team out against Sheffield Wednesday on the opening weekend of the 2017-18 Championship season.

Fulham had arrived with a clear intention to take the game to City, but after that early setback, the task was beyond them.

However, coach Pep Guardiola said they could have scored more goals and they must be more clinical in front of the goal. They showed they are one of the best teams in the world.

"At the end, the result is completely fair".

Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan addressed Manchester City supporters for only the second time since he bought the club 10 years ago this month.

Manchester City, the current champions of The Premier League, have published their annual accounts for the financial year 2017/18 and as per the books it has become the 2nd club in the history of The Premier League to have annual revenue of more than £500m.

Bernardo Silva had a goalbound shot deflected behind soon after, while substitute Gabriel Jesus saw a near-post effort well saved by Bettinelli as City threatened a rout.

Fernandinho nearly got in on the act with a fiercely-struck shot which zipped inches past the post with Bettinelli beaten, and the Brazilian midfielder then combined with Sterling to set up Jesus, who again could not find the target.

"We never want to lose the game", manager Slavisa Jokanovic said.

The buildup to the goal was a beauty mixed with a string of passes.

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. Sterling also made way midway through the second half.
