Manchester City 2-0 Fulham – Premier League – 19th January 2013
David Silva was the star of the show for Man City on Saturday, with the diminutive Spaniard netting both goals in the Citizens’ comfortable victory against a poor Fulham side.
Silva opened the scoring after just two minutes, following up after Mark Schwarzer could only parry an Edin Dzeko effort. The Spaniard’s second came after the break, with the midfielder finishing with a dinky dink from a Gael Clichy pass after a clever dummy from Carlos Tevez.
Despite having a decent amount of the ball, particularly in the first-half, the Cottagers rarely really threatened Joe Hart’s goal, with Steve Sidwell going closest in the first-half.
However, ultimately, the home side deserved their win, and now go four points behind league-leaders Man Utd, who play tomorrow.
Martin Jol’s Whites, on the other hand, now find themselves six points clear of the drop-zone.
