Manchester City pounce Fulham to advance PL title hopes

Manchester City asserted their dominance in the Premier League title race by securing a crucial victory over Fulham, moving two points clear at the top of the table.

The visitors took control early on, with defender Gvardiol breaking the deadlock after a well-executed move breached Fulham’s defense.

Phil Foden extended City’s lead with a clinical finish in the second half, showcasing his exceptional form this season.

Despite Erling Haaland squandering a chance to add a third goal, Gvardiol capitalized on another opportunity to put the result beyond Fulham. The game concluded with Issa Diop receiving a second yellow card for a foul on Julain Alvarez, leading to a penalty that was converted by a Manchester City substitute.

With Arsenal now needing a win against Manchester United to keep their title hopes alive, Manchester City’s victory intensifies the pressure on their rivals.

Should Arsenal falter, victory in their upcoming fixture against Tottenham would secure a fourth consecutive Premier League title for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Phil Foden’s goal further solidified his remarkable season, making him just the second Englishman in the Premier League era to score 25 or more goals for Manchester City across all competitions.

While Arsenal remains in contention, Manchester City’s comfortable win against Fulham reflects their composure under pressure, signaling their determination to claim another league trophy.

Fulham, meanwhile, faced a daunting task against a formidable City side and struggled to pose a threat, resulting in a disappointing end to their season under manager Marco Silva.
