Bernardo Silva turned in a virtuoso display as Leroy Sane, David Silva and Raheem Sterling got the goals for Manchester City.
Leroy Sane marked his return to the Manchester City starting line-up with a quickfire goal to ignite a 3-0 victory over Fulham.
Germany winger Sane tapped home after 96 seconds and David Silva netted his 50th Premier League goal midway through the first half.
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.
Pep Guardiola’s champions remain in touch with early pacesetters Liverpool and Chelsea, two points off the Premier League summit in third.
