Since then the midfield playmaker has dazzled supporters at the Etihad Stadium with his incredible technical style, as well as being a pivotal part of three separate Premier League title triumphs.

"But we can not forget, sometimes this kind of thing happens".

Manchester City were by far and away the best team in the Premier League last season, breaking all sorts of records, but it's hard to disagree with fans who thought they should have been stripped of the title for this abomination.

David Silva made sure City were in the driving seat with the second goal on the 21st minute before Raheem Sterling added the third on the 47th minute of play to claim maximum points for the defending champions. He has to realise for himself like a professional he has to do.

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 is nearly impossible to be more pleased as a manager with him", the City boss said. He is a good example for us, for all the guys. Sometimes, for some players, it's that way [a slow start]. "He is an example".

The reigning Premier League champions are unbeaten in the league this season and will be looking to continue their good form against their newly-promoted opponents. When he fell down, he felt something.

"He could play but after 3-0, no risk".

- Fulham have registered their second worst start to a Premier League campaign after five games (4pts, -5 goal difference); only bettering 2011-2012 (3 pts, -3 goal difference). "It feels that we are only halfway up our Everest", the billionaire said as he reflected on the past decade and, spelling out his vision for the future, declared that there was "much more to win". "It was never going to be an easy day for us".

"How we start the game, how we start the second half, it didn't make it easy for ourselves fighting for something positive".

Granit Xhaka got them up and running before Mesut Ozil joined in on the act, despite the last-gasp effort from Ciaran Clark at the other end proving to be of no barrier.

Fulham had some bright moments but were continually undermined by the number of times they gave away possession.

"We didn't find our best level or our ideal level, and without this level at this place it is not easy to play football".
