Silva: I knew second season at City would be easier

Silva: I knew second season at City would be easier

"At the end, the result is completely fair".

"We had a problem with Sergio Aguero, he got injured in the first half and we didn't want to take a risk", he said.

There could have been many more goals, but while they opened up Fulham with some ease, City were unable to fully punish them.

Before the clash against Fulham, Manchester City had registered 3 victories and a draw - against Wolverhampton Wanderers - and looked to add another three points against The Cottagers.

The London club did not help their cause by gifting their opponents the lead after trying to build from the back and falling prey to City's high press.

Bernardo Silva staked his claim for a place even more emphatically, earning the man-of-the-match award after pulling the strings with aplomb on Saturday.

City had 28 attempts on goal but only converted a small portion.

Also joined on this occasion by Vera's great grandsons Max Goldsmith, 10, and Sammy Goldsmith, 4, her grandson, David Goldsmith, said: "Basically, Grandma Vera is a legend, she's raised over £23,000 for The Christie hospital in Manchester since 2001, through her baking".

However, on the 21st minute mark after going back and forth, City's David Silva finished off a team move to net his 50th Premier League goal.

Fulham were outplayed but goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli caught the eye with a number of smart saves, notably forcing a Sterling shot onto the bar as well as further denying the England forward and Sane.

"If they miss the goals or assists, I don't care".

"Something in the ankle, when he fell down, he felt something".

The second half began exactly like the first as the home side scored once again within 90 seconds of the game restarting - Raheem Sterling tapping in - and the home side were left to cruise to their fourth win of the campaign. We will see tomorrow how he wakes up.

The City boss purred over the skills of his two Silvas and said Portugal worldwide Bernardo would be at the club for as long as he is in charge.

"It is nearly impossible to be more pleased as a manager with him", Guardiola praised. He's a nice guy and I don't have any bad words about him.

He could win the race to be fit against Lyon, but with Gabriel Jesus chomping at the bit for game-time, Guardiola may rest Aguero as a precaution.
