EPL: City Back To Top 4 With 2-0 Win Over Fulham

Manchester City returned to the top 4 of the EPL table as they eased past Fulham 2-0 with fans prepared to return to the stadium of English top-flight teams for the first time in months.

AllNews understands that City, who had won just four of their opening nine matches, are showing ominous signs they are returning to their best form after building on their 5-0 mauling of Burnley last week.

Pep Guardiola's team have had a patchy start to the season but are now just three points behind leaders Tottenham after a dominant display at the Etihad.

West Ham was preparing to welcome 2,000 supporters to the London Stadium for the visit of Manchester United, with the same number due at Chelsea's match against Leeds.

They made a superb start at the Etihad, with Raheem Sterling putting them ahead inside five minutes to end his recent goal drought.

The England forward, who had already had one shot saved by Alphonse Areola, raced through on goal from a measured Kevin De Bruyne pass and calmly side-footed into the far corner.

De Bruyne, in Guardiola's 700th game as a manager, doubled the lead from the penalty spot after Sterling was brought down by Joachim Andersen.

The Belgian rattled the bar early in the second half as City continued to dominate possession but they could not add to their lead.

The result lifts City to fourth in the table on 18 points, ahead of Leicester on goal difference, while Fulham remains fourth from bottom.
