Manchester City score four goals against Fulham to claim the top spot in the standings

By Majesty 2 Min Read

Manchester City defeated Fulham to go two points clear of Arsenal in the Premier League, and Josko Gvardiol scored twice as they increased their lead. 

The visitors took the lead early on in a match they controlled from beginning to end when defender Gvardiol scored a cool finish after a clever play exposed the Fulham defence. 

After the break, Phil Foden maintained his stellar form from this season by finishing second, beating Bernd Leno for the first time.

Midway through the second half, Erling Haaland had a chance to add a third goal, but the Premier League’s top scorer managed to drive high over the net. 

Gvardiol’s goal at the far post put Manchester City ahead against Fulham, but they had to wait little longer for another one. 

In stoppage time, Issa Diop was given a second yellow card for bringing down Julain Alvarez inside the area. The Manchester City substitute subsequently scored the penalty.

Due to the outcome, the Gunners must win their match against Manchester United on Sunday in order to guarantee that they will lead the title fight into the final day of the campaign. 

On Tuesday, Manchester City takes on Tottenham, and a win there would guarantee Guardiola’s team a fourth straight Premier League title should Arsenal fail to win at Old Trafford. 

It was always going to be tough for Fulham to duplicate last season’s top-10 finish against a Manchester City team vying for the championship, but a victory was necessary to maintain optimism. 

Although relegation has never been a worry, Marco Silva’s team has had a dismal season, winning just one of their last eight Premier League games.
