Another weekend of Premier League action and another straightforward win for Manchester City as Pep Guardiola’s side swept past Fulham with a 2-0 win.

City put five past Burnley last weekend and they were unlucky not to beat that total after completing outclassing Scott Parker’s struggling visitors.

The hosts were right on their A-game from kick off at the Etihad as Raheem Sterling got the ball rolling inside the first five minutes.

Kevin De Bruyne’s perfect pass split the Fulham defence in two and Sterling raced on to calmly clip over the stranded Alphonse Areola.

The talismanic De Bruyne continued to the beating heart of City’s first half dominance, firstly forcing a smart stop from Areola before making it 2-0 on the half hour.

Sterling was caught by Joachim Anderson inside the box and the Belgian routinely tucked past Areola from the spot.

City clicked back into top gear after the break, with Fulham looking to batten down the hatches, as De Bruyne cracked another fine effort against the bar.

Parker’s side did show some signs of life in the final 20 as Ivan Cavaleiro forced a reaction stop from Ederson on the break.

But in reality, Guardiola’s side could and should have added to the lead in the closing minutes as Ruben Dias headed wide and Gabriel Jesus fired over.
