Sané strikes early as dominant Man City brush Fulham aside

Manchester City

City return to Premier League duty next Saturday when they make the trip to fellow top-flight new-boys Cardiff. At just 23-years-old he already has bags of top-level experience to his name and the potential to become one of the most risky players in world football.

Leroy Sane marked a week to remember with a goal in Manchester City's 3-0 victory over Fulham, days after becoming a father for the first time.

The team eventually won the game 3-0, courtesy of goals from Leroy Sane, David Silva and Raheem Sterling.

"Sometimes he has to realise for himself, like a professional (what) he has to do - (I am) delighted for his performance".

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.

With the club winning titles, having a world class squad, a highly reputed manager, and showing pretty good annual profits and revenues, Sheikh Mansoor will surely be more than happy with the way things have turned out for Manchester City. "He started in an incredible condition and he deserves to play".

Asked if the Argentina striker would be fit for City's Champions League clash with Lyon on Wednesday, he said: "It's something in the ankle".


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

Fulham were relieved to see City take their foot off the gas in the second half, although the defeat means this is their second-worst start to a Premier League campaign. "Tomorrow we will see how he wakes up [for Lyon]".

The pensioners will sit pitchside but will not lead the teams out - they will leave that to Vera's great grandsons Max Goldsmith, 10, and Sammy Goldsmith, 4.

Sterling was the next to come close at the end of the first half as he waltzed into the area before seeing his shot saved by the keeper, and from the resulting corner the home side did have the ball in the back of the net once again - only for Sane's flick to be correctly ruled out for offside.

They also won the EFL Cup and reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, where they lost to Liverpool.

"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.

"We didn't find our best level or our flawless level, and without this level at this place it is not easy to play football".
