Manchester City ease past Fulham with Sterling and De Bruyne sparkling
Manchester City have secured back-to-back top-flight victories for the first time this season and as a result - despite their many struggles over the opening months of the campaign - the Premier League table is beginning to look a lot healthier. Pep Guardiola’s side lifted themselves from the bottom-half into the top four with a 2-0 victory over Fulham and will end the weekend six points off the summit with a game in hand, at worst. All they needed were a couple of home bankers, with this comfortable win through a Raheem Sterling goal and a Kevin De Bruyne penalty following Burnley’s emphatic 5-0 defeat here a week ago.
