Manchester City Set New Records Against Fulham In A 4-0 Victory

Manchester City set new records against Fulham in their commanding victory at Craven Cottage. The Cityzens emerged victorious with a 4-0 scoreline, sending them to the top of the Premier League standings amidst a closely contested title race with Arsenal.

With just two matches left to play, Pep Guardiola’s side are two points above the Gunners. Therefore, a victory against Tottenham Hotspur in the midweek and a last day victory against West Ham United would be enough for the Cityzens to win their fourth consecutive league trophy.

At the Craven Cottage, Josko Gvardiol was the Man Of The Match, scoring two important goals to seal the victory. The Croatian found the back of the net in the 13th minutes from a master class from Kevin De Bruyne.

Pep Guardiola’s boys double the lead in the 59 minutes as Phil Foden added another goal to his impressive campaign. Gvardiol made it three by managing to beat the Fulham goalkeeper after he controlled Bernardo Silva’s cross.

The Croatia international could have gone on home with the match ball after City had a late penalty. But Julian Alvarez, who came on for Erling Haaland, took the spot-kick to complete the 4-0 victory. Manchester City set new records against Fulham with the result.

Man City recorded Their 16th Consecutive Victory Against Fulham

Manchester City have no secure victory in 16 matches against the Cottagers in all competitions. They last tasted a defeat in a Premier League match in November 2009.

The result makes the Cityzens the only team in the history of the league to have 16 wins in a row against the same opponent. Interesting, the previous records were held by Man City themselves.

Pep Guardiola’s boys previously held the record of 15 games unbeaten run against Bournemouth and Watford; however, they made it 16 against Fulham.
