Manchester City punishes Fulham and forces Arsenal to win in Manchester

Change of leader in the Premier League. Manchester City won without trembling, this Saturday afternoon, on the Fulham pitch, at the end of a fairly intense and pleasant encounter to follow (0-4). As usual, the Citizens immediately took control of the ball, patiently looking for a shift on the sides or a nice vertical pass between the lines. A domination, in terms of possession, which quickly bore fruit.

Indeed, from the 13th minute of play, Josko Gvardiol, found on the left, entered the axis, found a relay with Kevin De Bruyne before deceiving the vigilance of Bernd Leno with a strike on the ground with the right foot in the penalty area. After Mancunian opened the score, the Cottagers tried to react, by throwing long balls, to find their attackers in depth. In vain. Pep Guardiola's players continued to set their pace. They have also created several dangerous situations, but without materializing. They thus returned to the locker room with a one-goal advantage.

After the break, Manchester City resumed at the same pace, monopolizing the leather. And once again, the Citizens managed to make the difference. Just before the hour mark, after a breakthrough and a blocked shot from Bernardo Silva at the edge of the penalty area, Phil Foden inherited the ball and instantly took his chance with his right foot. His shot left Bernd Leno no chance, once again beaten on his right side (59th).

Despite their two goal lead, Kevin De Bruyne and his partners continued to insist. And in the 71st minute of play, they logically worsened the score on a cross from Bernardo Silva taken at the far post by Josko Gvardiol. At the end of the match, Julian Alvarez, who came on in place of Erling Haaland, obtained and converted a penalty (90th 6), capping his team's clear and flawless success. Thanks to this victory, the Mancunian team (temporarily) regains the lead in the Premier League and puts pressure on its competitor, Arsenal, who travels to Manchester United this Sunday afternoon (5:30 p.m.).
