(HD Video) Man Ciity vs FuIham 5−1- All Gоals & Extеndеd Hіghlіghts

A fantastic Kevin De Bruyne free-kick handed City a narrow 1-0 win against Leicester in their last Premier League outing, keeping Pep Guardiola’s side on the heels of Arsenal in first place. With the Gunners facing Chelsea this weekend, a win for City could potentially send them above Arsenal and into top spot.

City also secured top spot in their Champions League group prior to their game against Fulham – the perfect boost ahead of the clash. City have a great record against the Cottagers, winning their last 12 consecutive games against the London side.

Kyle Walker and Kalvin Phillips and are both confirmed to miss out against Fulham, whilst Erling Haaland has a chance of returning against the Cottagers after missing the last two games through injury.

To complete this simulation, we used FIFA 23 and updated the squads with the latest injuries and suspensions.

City went ahead within three minutes through Kevin De Bruyne, with the midfielder striking Haaland’s layoff into the far corner of the net. The pressure continued from City, and just minutes later, De Bruyne grabbed his and City’s second of the game.

After being brought down outside the area, De Bruyne was awarded a free-kick in the centre of the pitch. Despite the distance from goal, the Belgian hit a tremendous effort, swerving away from the ‘keeper and into the top corner of the net.

Fulham couldn’t get a hold in the game, and a sloppy bit of play at the back saw Haaland intercept a loose pass before rounding the ‘keeper to make it 3-0. The striker’s return to the squad was having a big impact on the game, and he grabbed his second and City’s fourth just before the break.

After cutting inside, Jack Grealish cleverly flicked the ball back down the line for Joao Cancelo to run onto. The defender broke into the box and found Haaland in the middle, and the striker swept his effort across goal and into the far corner for 4-0.

In-form striker Aleksandar Mitrovic pulled a goal back for the visitors just after the restart, with the striker beating Ruben Dias to a cross to head under Ederson at the near post. Any hope for the visitors was quickly wiped out though, with Nathan Ake making it 5-1 with 15 minutes to go.

De Bruyne’s corner was whipped in towards Ake at the near post with pace, and the defender glanced the cross across goal, bouncing past the ‘keeper.

Mitrovic grabbed a second for Fulham in the final few minutes of the game as he curled past Ederson from range, but it was nothing but a consolation goal as City won 5-2.
