Premier League: Man City 3-0 Fulham

[Sunday, February 05, 2012 ]

Manchester City moved clear at the top of the Premier League table with a 3-0 victory over Fulham at the Etihad Stadium.

England winger Adam Johnson was at the heart of the action in the first half and, when he went down in the area following contact with Chris Baird's leg after nine minutes, Sergio Agüero stepped up to tuck away the penalty.

Just before the half-hour, City doubled their lead when Baird could only divert Johnson's attempted pull back into the danger area beyond his own goalkeeper.

The conditions worsened markedly after the interval, with the groundstaff called upon to clear the lines on several occasions, before Edin Džeko got on the scoresheet on 72 minutes with a simple finish after unselfish play from Agüero.
