Man City fans aged 102 and 97 to be mascots against Fulham

"Last season I said if I stay here, this guy will stay here because he is special", added the City manager.

The German struck within two minutes of his first league start of the season as the Cottagers were outgunned at the Etihad Stadium.

A Manchester City season ticket-holder for 85 years, Cohen still attends every home game with her sister. Raheem Sterling left the England over the weekend with a back injury, but Pep Guardiola says the 23-year-old is healthy enough to return to selection for City.

The winger also started just one of their first six matches last season with Guardiola saying he didn't have a good preseason, but the Catalan says he isn't concerned. He has to realise for himself like a professional he has to do.

Bernardo Silva staked his claim for a place even more emphatically, earning the man-of-the-match award after pulling the strings with aplomb on Saturday. "He deserves to play all the minutes he plays".

"For City, two more seasons - what's left on my contract". When he fell down, he felt something. We'll see how he recovers tomorrow'.

Fulham were architects of their own downfall to a certain extent, with their gung-ho approach to the game playing right into Man City's hands, and the hosts were inches away from doubling their advantage after only 15 minutes when Sterling was played clean through on goal, only to see his low effort bounce off the leg of Marcus Bettinelli and up against the crossbar. "It was never going to be an easy day for us".

"Most of the developments visible today are the result of a carefully crafted strategy - one in which organic evolution has also been allowed to thrive", said Khaldoon Al Mubarak, the chairman of City Football Group, which administers the club under the ownership of Abu Dhabi United Group.

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

But Fulham bowed to the inevitable in the 21st minute after more outstanding play from Bernardo who held off Stefan Johansen's strong challenge and pulled the ball back for Sergio Aguero whose effort was blocked by Odoi.

So, does the potential of this record-breaking City team show any signs that they could beat that great Barcelona side of 2011?

"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".
