Sergio Aguero's fitness could be the key to Man City's quadruple bid

Sergio Aguero's fitness could be the key to Man City's quadruple bid

Aguero, who is the league's top scorer on 19 goals, was replaced by Gabriel Jesus. "After the goals we controlled it", he said.

For manager Pep Guardiola, the lunchtime stroll at Craven Cottage, featuring the return of key players like Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho after injury, felt like the most ideal resumption with the pressure immediately restored on Liverpool.

Kewvin McDonald came on for Babel for Fulham, with Riyad Mahrez replacing Sterling for City, the home side creating one last half-chance to set up a dramatic finish when Schurrle's low ball into the area took a couple of unsafe deflections before being held by Ederson.

"Right now with the way he plays I can not do anything else but put him on the pitch and let him play", said Guardiola.

"It's an incredible result after the global break".

"You need to be lucky, you need to have certain things which you are not able to control and, most importantly, you need to have the desire to go in every single game". From the moment Guardiola's men went 2-0 in front, it was played with the pace and intent of a preseason friendly.

"He says he felt something, but hopefully he's not injured", Guardiola said. For Liverpool, who will surely be tested more by Tottenham than were City by Fulham, the pressure has been ratcheted up further before their own run-in has begun. "We will have 80 points with six games to play if we win next week", he said.

City boss Guardiola hailed his players' mental strength, tipping them to "go like a machine" in the chase for an unprecedented clean sweep of Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup this term.

However, Guardiola believes his side need to win all of their remaining games to be champions again. "We have a tough, tough opponent (Liverpool)". But AGUERO did it in 46 fewer games.

"He decided on not continuing".

Cardiff remain the favourites to be the third and final side to drop to the Championship, with manager Neil Warnock left fuming as the Bluebirds slipped to a controversial defeat to Chelsea to remain five points adrift of safety.

"The way we started to play against Fulham, they show me we want to do it".

The Reds will be looking to boost their title push with a victory when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield for Sunday's Premier League showdown.

With seven games remaining before the end of the season, the Senegal global said that he keeps a close eye on the Citizens' matches and hopes they drop points for his team's advantage.
