Sergio AGUERO with a goal and assist for Manchester City in win

Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola

A goal and an assist takes Manchester City at the top of the league table.

He stroked home a neat opener on just five minutes, pouncing on Timothy Fosu-Mensah's poor misplaced pass.

Klopp has also suggested that Mane and last season's victor Salah - who have both scored 17 league goals this season - are in contention for the prize.

"We know that in the Champions League and the knockout competitions, you can't make any mistakes", he said.

"Every game we have to win if we want to be champions".

Fulham defender Joe Bryan even helped City with its second goal in the 27th minute. "As a precaution he made a decision to not continue and hopefully will not be a bit issue", Guardiola added. Hopefully it will not be a big issue. Honestly, maybe with the amount of games we have, with these fixtures, we will drop points.

"Anything can happen in 90 minutes but there's just one option - win the game".

No high-octane pressing was required given Fulham's profligacy with the ball however, and when Aguero doubled the visitors' lead, the game was done and dusted inside half an hour.

"We have a tough, tough opponent - but that's the challenge".

"It was a tricky game, a 12:30 kick-off after the global break, but the way we started was unbelievable".

Fulham were guilty of staying too deep and overplaying with their poor distribution causing self-inflicted problems time and time again. "I think a lot of them may start changing their opinions and try to get a decent result against City".

"After that the game was a bit more controlled".

Ahead of the busy stretch of games, City goalkeeper Ederson told Sky Sports: "It is the most hard month of the season and most crucial as well".

Fulham now go on to Tuesday night's Vicarage Road encounter with Watford, where defeat could yet confirm their relegation back to the Championship.

"If you take the last 10 weeks, and not only that, I would say Sadio Mane is probably in the race as well".

"I think everyone would probably favour Raheem Sterling at the moment with the way he's going and the publicity he's getting".

"While it's still mathematically possible we won't give up, but I'm a realist and we all understand the predicament ahead".
