Ederson: A relieved man as the ball rolled wide of the goal as he came out to retrieve it and saw John Stones knock it past him. Did not have very much to do with his goal remaining untested. 6

Cancelo: Never shy to get forward and worked very well with De Bruyne on the right, constantly catching Fulham cold with his intelligent runs. Another excellent showing, even if a little quieter in the second half. 8

Dias: He's just exactly what City needed this season, isn't he? Always in the right place to prevent danger or cut it out, he has transformed the defence. 8

Stones: Credit also to Stones who picked up his third consecutive clean sheet. as he kept Laporte out of the team again. A nervy moment with Ederson aside, everything was comfortable. 7

Mendy: Good against the tricky Anguissa. Didn't go forward as often as he can with Cancelo much more advanced, although that is not necessarily to his detriment as he kept a solid back line. 7

Rodri: Dropped back into defence but also pushed on to drive City forward, showing an ability to break lines that he doesn't always use. One of Guardiola's most-used this season, he looked like he could run all night. 8

Gundogan: A quiet yet effective performance, ticking the ball over and helping Mendy on the left. A door left open for Bernardo Silva or Phil Foden though, probably. 7

De Bruyne: Produced one of the best bits of skill you will see all season in his own third. Also bagged an assist and a goal and showed once more why he is untouchable in this league. 9

Mahrez: Fulham did much better at keeping him quiet than Burnley did, although his exceptional touch still helped create a few shooting opportunities. 7

Manchester City resumed their Premier League campaign this weekend with a comfortable win over Fulham at the Etihad Stadium.

After confirming qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League earlier in the week, the Blues were able to focus fully on gaining ground in the league and kick-starting a real challenge to regain the title.

An early strike from Raheem Sterling and a penalty from Kevin De Bruyne, both in the first half, were enough as the Blues strolled to three points.

Sterling: Missed a good chance early on, scored a good chance early on. Much improved in the final third for this season in terms of getting into the right areas. 8

Jesus: Another game without a goal for Jesus, although his general performance did contribute to the attack as ever. Looked sufficiently sharp without threatening the goal. 6
