3 talking points from Manchester City’s convincing win over Fulham

Manchester City remain on-course to lift the Premier League title as they had a comprehensive victory on their visit to Craven Cottage.

Manchester City had a terrific second half against Fulham, as they put three goals past the hosts in the final 45 minutes of the game. With their 3-0 victory at Craven Cottage, City extended their lead at the top to 17 points. The Citizens have 71 points from their 30 outings, with Manchester United on second place with 54 points, but they do have two extra games in hand.

Fulham defended brilliantly in the first half, keeping the Sky Blues attack at bay. However, this resistance was finally broken when John Stones scored from a delicious ball put into the box by Benjamin Mendy. Gabriel Jesus scored the second goal for his side, after a mishap in Fulham’s defence. Sergio Aguero finished off the things for the visitors, after scoring a penalty in the 60th minute.

SERGIO AGUERO IS BACK WITH A BANG

The previous year has been horrific for Sergio Aguero to say the least. The Argentine striker suffered a knee injury last June, which ruled him out of the remainder of last season. He was handed a start against Fulham, as Pep Guardiola look to rotate his side ahead of the Champions League fixture over the week.

The Argentine striker ended his longest drought in front of the goal as he converted from the penalty spot in the 60th minute. Aguero’s last league goal came way back in January last year and the striker will certainly breathe a huge sigh of relief. However, Aguero was not at his sharpest during the match and failed to provide any attacking threat. With Gabriel Jesus firing on all cylinders, the Argentine has to step up his game if he is to remain City’s number one striker in the near future.
