Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne inspired Manchester City to a 2-0 win over Fulham in Pep Guardiola's 250th game in charge of the club.
Pep Guardiola celebrated victory in his 250th game in charge of Manchester City as goals from Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne gave them a 2-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League.
Sterling opened the scoring for City on Saturday with a clinical finish as he ended a run of six games in all competitions without a goal.
De Bruyne added a second from the penalty spot after Sterling had been clumsily brought down by Fulham's Joachim Andersen.
The Cottagers failed to really test Ederson in the City goal as they managed just a solitary attempt on target in a one-sided contest.
City imposed themselves from the kick-off and Sterling drew a fine near-post save from Fulham goalkeeper Alphonse Areola in the third minute.
Guardiola's side were ahead shortly after when Sterling latched on to a slick pass from De Bruyne before he calmly slotted the ball past Areola.
Fulham tried to soak up City's pressure but Scott Parker's tactical plan was in tatters when Andersen upended Sterling in the box as the forward won the 20th Premier League penalty of his career – more than any other player.
De Bruyne, who missed his last penalty against Liverpool, stepped up and sent Areola the wrong way with a confident spot-kick.
