Silva Double Downs Cottagers

David Silva netted a goal in each half as Manchester City beat Fulham 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

It took only 95 second for the little Spaniard to find the net although after such a promising start the next goal only came with just 20 minutes to play.

Roberto Mancini is well aware that his team need to get maximum points at every opportunity if they are to reel in league leaders Manchester United and his side started the game positively.

Fulham were left shell-shocked as their hosts came bursting out of the gates with Silva smashing home after Edin Dzeko’s long range effort was only parried away.

The hosts looked less than impressive for the remainder of the half though but although Fulham had the better of the play their only real chance glanced off the upright via Steve Sidwell’s header.

City almost nicked what would have been a very underserved second on the stroke of half time but Dzeko smashed his shot well over.

Dzeko then had another opportunity in the second half after a very uneventful 20 minutes or so following the interval.

The Bosnian striker nipped in to connect with Silva’s cross but Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer was equal to the headed effort.

The Blues did finally get a second in the 69th minute as the superb Silva picked up Carlos Tevez’s pass before clipping the ball over the keeper.

Dzeko almost made amends for numerous misses during the game but missed the target after neat work from substitute Sergio Aguero.
