Manchester City has returned to the subtop of the English Premier League thanks to a 2-0 victory over Fulham. Orange-international Nathan Aké was once again left out of the competition selection by Guardiola.
After five minutes, the home team led through a goal of Raheem Sterling, expelled with a stab pass by Kevin De Bruyne. Both players also had a leading role in the second hit. Sterling was slightly tapped by Joachim Andersen. The easily given penalty was used by De Bruyne.
Coach Pep Guardiolas team won two competition duels in a row for the first time this season. Last week, with 5-0, City had clearly been too strong for Burnley. The club now has 18 points out of ten duels.
Earlier on Saturday Everton played out with 1-1 right on a visit to Burnley. The home team was already in the third minute with a distance shot from Robert Brady. Dominic Calvert-Lewin made the equalizer at a stroke of rest.
