X reacts as Man City fire four past Fulham to leapfrog title rivals Arsenal

Manchester City eased past a woeful Fulham on Saturday at Craven Cottage, beating the west London side 4-0 with an emphatic display.

Josko Gvardiol has given Man City an early lead to settle any nerves with an excellent finish and he grabbed his second of the game after the break following Phil Foden’s excellent strike. Julian Alvarez added some gloss to the scoreline with a late penalty.

The result moves Man City back to the top of the Premier League table before Arsenal’s clash with Manchester United on Sunday.

Here is how X users reacted to a big clash in the Premier League title race.

Arsenal’s hopes of a Man City slip-up in west London were dampened after just 13 minutes, with the reigning champions storming into an early lead.

Gvardiol, who has turned into a goal machine in recent weeks, found the back of the net once again, delicately passing an excellent effort past Bernd Leno with his weaker right boot.

Fulham had barely laid a glove on Man City in a first half utterly dominated by the visitors, with Pep Guardiola’s side finishing the half with 67% possession and seven shots to the hosts’ zero.

Any hopes of an upset in the title race looked increasingly slim heading into the second half.

Those slim hopes were completely extinguished just before the hour mark as Man City doubled their advantage to put the game to bed.

It was, unsurprisingly, the excellent Foden that gave Man City breathing room, firing a right-footed effort past Leno to wrap up the points.
