Saturday's meeting with City sees them match up against the side that sits second in the Premier League with 2,726 completed passes through four matches, 497 more than Fulham.

The victory keeps defending champion City within two points of early leaders Liverpool and Chelsea, which both maintained flawless starts to the season.

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.

However, on the 21st minute mark after going back and forth, City's David Silva finished off a team move to net his 50th Premier League goal.

Pep Guardiola made four changes to his side, including a first Premier League start of the season for Sane, and the out-of-favour Germany worldwide took just 97 seconds to make his impact.

It proved to be an ominous snapshot of what was to come as City broke through nearly at will throughout the first half, with the impressive Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero both firing tame efforts on goal.

"It's a challenge for him and not just him - everybody", Guardiola told a news conference ahead of City's clash against Fulham.

City's record breakers also collected the greatest number of wins in a Premier League season, the most consecutive amount of victories, highest goal tally and goal difference, as well as the biggest winning margin in the Premier League's 26-year history.

However, with two years left on his deal at the club, Silva has revealed that he does not have plans to renew his contract with the Premier League champions.

"But we started with the mindset that we needed to be on the front foot". Andre Schurrle did threaten from distance but City goalkeeper Ederson tipped over.

Guardiola was understandably upbeat after seeing off Fulham easily on an afternoon when man-of-the-match Bernardo Silva acted as the puppet master. Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Raz [Raheem Sterling] - the other ones are young - and he will grow up.

Fernandinho nearly got in on the act with a fiercely-struck shot which zipped inches past the post with Bettinelli beaten, and the Brazilian midfielder then combined with Sterling to set up Jesus, who again could not find the target.

"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.

Delph will be hoping that a solid display against the west Londoners will see him get another chance against Lyon in Wednesday's Champions League opener.
