Guardiola calls for response from Sane

Guardiola calls for response from Sane

Defending English Premier League Champions, Manchester City, thrashed Fulham 3-0 in their recent EPL fixture, but coach Pep Guardiola thinks they should be more clinical.

The drop off in intensity got under Delph's skin, with the left back frustrated by their inability to net even more on his first club appearance of the campaign.

"I couldn't get my feet sorted at times but that will come with more match time and fitness".

"Most of the developments visible today are the result of a carefully crafted strategy - one in which organic evolution has also been allowed to thrive", said Khaldoon Al Mubarak, the chairman of City Football Group, which administers the club under the ownership of Abu Dhabi United Group.

'We knew Fulham could be a threat - they have been impressive already this season.

The Premier League champions returned from the worldwide break in style at the Etihad Stadium.

In other Premier League game played on Saturday, Arsenal defeated Newcastle United 2-1 at the St James' Park.


Bernardo was thwarted when trying to cap his man-of-the-match display with a goal when he saw his effort blocked moments later, and it quickly became clear that Fulham had made no changes to their approach during the interval.

Bernardo Silva dazzled with sublime close control before playing in Sterling - a combination of Bettinelli and his crossbar denying the England winger. They have good players - [Jean Michael] Seri, and players in the front like [Aleksandar] Mitrovic. He looks about 45 but he's only about 20 or something.

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.

Bernardo Silva formed part of a frightening City attack that gave Fulham a torrid time for large periods.

The Premier League champion wasled onto the pitch at Etihad Stadium by 102-year-old Vera Cohen and her sister, 97-year-old Olga Halon.

"For City, two more seasons - what's left on my contract". It is a huge benefit for this kind of player.

The visitors' refused to abandon their attacking philosophy despite the obvious perils, and they also played their part in an entertaining contest with Andre Schurrle their most unsafe player and firing an effort over the crossbar before City's second. He's shown a similar style in different places, he's shown it's possible to play that way in different competitions.
