The Premier League match between Man City and Fulham will be broadcast live on NBC Sports.

"We can not forget he is 22 years old".

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 brilliant David Silva doubled the hosts' lead before the break, with Raheem Sterling all but securing the win two minutes into the second half.

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

There was more wayward finishing from the Brazil striker as City's forwards queued up to get in on the act, with Bernardo Silva blazing over in the 81st minute to miss out on the goal his wonderful efforts merited.

"It is nearly impossible to be more pleased as a manager with him". I believe in all the guys in my squad - Sane, for example, is only 22 and he realises why he hasn't played many minutes. "He started in an incredible condition and he deserves to play".

David Silva and Aymeric Laporte were also picked out for a praise after a game when Guardiola explained that Phil Foden was left on the bench due to a niggle picked up by Sergio Aguero.


"But we were aggressive when we had the ball and we created chances".

Despite showing no signs of slowing down in the Premier League, the former Spanish worldwide only has two more seasons left on his contract at the Etihad, and admits he isn't sure of what his next move will be, despite the constant links with a return to his hometown club, Las Palmas. When he fell down, he felt something.

- Fulham have registered their second worst start to a Premier League campaign after five games (4pts, -5 goal difference); only bettering 2011-2012 (3 pts, -3 goal difference).

In the Champions League final of 2011, they ran rings around a Manchester United team that could barely get near them for 90 minutes, with Lionel Messi at his imperious best.

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

So, does the potential of this record-breaking City team show any signs that they could beat that great Barcelona side of 2011?

Bernardo Silva orchestrated a lot of City's good play and it was the Portuguese who set up the second, brilliantly keeping the ball in play to tee up Aguero.
