Leroy Sane marked a week to remember with a goal in Manchester City's 3-0 victory over Fulham, days after becoming a father for the first time.

Sane, 22, starred last campaign, winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award as City cruised to the title, but he is yet to start a Premier League game in 2018-19.

Germany teammate Toni Kroos praised Sane's quality following his shock omission from the World Cup squad, but claimed that his body language made it appear as if he didn't care if he won or lost.

Leroy was so important, is so important, and will be so important for the club. He's a nice guy and I don't have any bad words about him.

"For City, (I want to play for) two more seasons - what's left on my contract", he told BBC Sport. "He started in an incredible condition and he deserves to play".

"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. "But we'll see how things go in two years and take it all from there".

Bernardo Silva had a goalbound shot deflected behind soon after, while substitute Gabriel Jesus saw a near-post effort well saved by Bettinelli as City threatened a rout.

"It is nearly impossible to be more pleased as a manager with him", Guardiola said.

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 global took just 97 seconds to make his impact.

Guardiola disputed that but did warn Sane, he must show he is ready to fight for a place this season, with increased competition from Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and new signing Riyad Mahrez.

"It's a challenge for all of them and a challenge for me and them is to keep that level". "We are filled with an extraordinary sense of pride in the hard work of Pep Guardiola, the players, and the staff who work tirelessly to support them. It's simple like that".
