Pep Guardiola has backed Leroy Sane following criticism about his body language, despite dropping him for Manchester City's last game.

"They showed great possession of the ball and great attacking weapons".

The German worldwide claimed an early opening goal before further efforts from David Silva and Raheem Sterling maintained City's unbeaten start to the campaign in effortless fashion.

The Citizens are third in the Premier League with 13 points, two behind Chelsea and Liverpool.

Sane, 22, has not started a game for City this season and has played just 75 minutes in their opening fixtures.

Fulham became a victim of its attempts to play the ball out from the back as Fernandinho intercepted a poor pass from Jean Michael Seri and raced clear on the left before crossing for Sane to tap home from close range at the Etihad Stadium.

Bernardo Silva believes his stunning start to the 2018/19 campaign with Manchester City is all thanks to second season syndrome.

City boss Guardiola has spoken about the effect Silva has on his side and how important the player is.

Said Bernardo: "The second season is always easier than the first one".

"Sometimes there are players - and all the managers know - that you give five minutes and they say; "now I have to play five minutes", like you have to tell them to play - he is not that case".

"We didn't find our best level or our flawless level, and without this level at this place it is not easy to play football".

So one guy has the ball and they miss the ball and an extra simple pass, an extra touch, an extra touch and after miss the pass, that is why I am still angry.

"There's a lot of nice strikers and midfield players and the season will be judged on 11 months, not just on three weeks or one month".

"I don't forget the behaviour he has last season". Silva's team-mates would steal his clothes while he showered, they would draw on his trainers and then hang them from the ceiling by their laces. "It feels that we are only halfway up our Everest", the billionaire said as he reflected on the past decade and, spelling out his vision for the future, declared that there was "much more to win".

There could have been many more goals but while they opened up Fulham with some ease, City were unable to fully punish the London side.
