Champions League Pep Guardiola Makes Shocking Statement on Manchester City's Performance

David Silva GETTY David Silva wanted to escape Spain when he joined Manchester City

Bernardo Silva set up his namesake for City's second as his cross deflected into the path of David Silva, who finished with typical coolness to double the lead after 21 minutes.

He has certainly started this season with a bang as City look to become the first team to defend the Premier League title in nearly a decade.

Guardiola said he was still keen to work with Sane, but said the likes of Silva - who made just 15 league starts last season - also deserved their chance.

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.

Fulham had, in contrast to many visitors to the Etihad, arrived with a clear intention to take the game to City but after that early setback the task was beyond Slavisa Jokanovic's side.

OSU's Nick Bosa out vs. TCU with injury
Trailing 14-13 by the middle of the match, the Buckeyes pulled out all of the stops to ensure a win in Arlington's At&T Stadium. Ohio State standout defensive end Nick Bosa left the No. 4 Buckeyes' game against No. 15 TCU with an injury on Saturday night.

Raheem Sterling helped himself to a third goal this season as City made a similarly rapid start to the second period - Fulham's cavalier attacking approach leaving their excellent goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli repeatedly exposed.

Some players at the end of the season go down.

Swiss star Granit Xhaka got the opener for Arsenal in the 49th minute and Mesut Ozil added the second for the Emirates dwellers in the 58 before Ciaran Clark pulled one back for the home-side in the 90th minute.

"Consistent domestic success and further development in the Champions League will be our focus in 2018-19 and the seasons to come", he said.

Schurrle kept Ederson busy with another sharp strike from the edge of the area which needed to be tipped over, but City were back up the other end in a heartbeat and Sane nearly doubled his personal tally moments later when his shot was denied by Bettinelli.

Sarri on Hazard: He may be the best in Europe
Hazard completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot before Willian's stunning strike completed the rout seven minutes from time . It was however not a sweet song for the duo as Leicester were beaten 4-2 in front of 10,543 Spectators at the Vitality Stadium .

Sergio Aguero crossed as Sterling crowned a lightning break 98 seconds into the second half and the Argentina striker soon made way for Gabriel Jesus, who nearly scored with his first touch.

In terms of global acclaim the list of Manchester City greats isn't overly extensive, yet David Silva easily fits into that category, and the Spaniard has admitted that it was his parents' divorce that made clear to him it was time to leave Spain for England back in 2010. 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.

'It's nice to get going again after the World Cup - we only got 12 days off, ' the England global said.

The buildup to the goal was a beauty mixed with a string of passes.

Spurs without Alli and Lloris for Liverpool clash
Alderweireld came out this week while on worldwide duty with Belgium and said he never wanted to leave the club. Pochettino has not ruled out Toby Alderweireld agreeing a new contract at the club.

And, while Guardiola will have little interest in Southgate's problems, his ability to rotate his squad with such high-quality replacements augurs well, with City about to embark on Champions League and League Cup campaigns in addition to their league commitments.
