Hello and welcome to our coverage of today's Premier League clash between Manchester City and Fulham, live from the Etihad Stadium.
1'
KICK OFF: Referee Jon Moss blows for the start of the game.
4'
Chance! Mahrez picks up the ball centrally and Sterling easily gets slipped in behind. He's only got Areola to beat with the outside of his right foot but it's a scuffed finish. Areloa blocks it away.
6'
GOAL! That was quick. Sterling makes no mistake this time. Fulham gift the ball to De Bruyne in midfield and he charges through on goal. He slips Sterling in behind Anderson who this time keeps his cool and rolls one into the far corner.
9'
Chance! Fulham get up the pitch down the right and Lookman forces a corner. It's a deep delivery but it finds Adarabioyo rising highest. He tries to loop one back towards the other corner but it loops the wrong side of the post.
12'
Save! Fulham are being pulled all over the show by City's movement. De Bruyne gets slipped down the right and tries to beat Areola at his near post but the goalkeeper gets his angles spot on. Pushes it around the post.
16'
Chance! Cancelo is joining the attack at every opportunity down the right. De Bruyne feeds him in behind and he squares one back for Gundogan from 18 yards. He strikes but it flashes over the bar.
20'
Fulham just can't get the ball. City are back to their strangling best without the ball, giving Parker's boys no time to think with their passing.
24'
De Bruyne receives a free kick short and plays Mendy into huge space down the left. City have the box flooded with players but Angussia does well to clear at the near post.
25'
PENALTY TO MAN CITY! Anderson, at fault for the first goal, dangles a leg in Sterling's direction who jinks cleverly away from him. It's soft but it's a penalty.
26'
GOAL! De Bruyne makes no mistake from the spot and doubles City's lead.
30'
Almost an own goal! Stones goes to sleep. A ball over the top causes him to play a blind ball back to his goalkeeper who unbeknown to Stones has come out to deal with the danger. His back-pass rolls agonizingly towards goal but goes a few yards wide for the corner.
32'
Save! Areola is going to be a busy boy. Mahrez flicks a clever ball over the top of Anderson and Sterling is away again. He decides to take on the volley and the goalkeeper has to alert to claw it away with one-hand.
35'
City lose possession and Loftus-Cheek tries to send Lookman away on the counter but he gets hounded out by three City players. De Bruyne eventually comes away with the ball. Amazing intensity.
38'
Statistic: Raheem Sterling has won more penalties than any other player in Premier League history (20).
39'
Fulham just can't get any play into their front three. The Pep press is back in business.
42'
Finally, Fulham work a pattern to release Lookman into space in the box. He then runs the ball straight out of play. Huge waste
44'
Sterling could have easily had a hat-trick here. Rodri moves forward into the box and he slips one to Sterling on the angle. He drills one but it deflects over the crossbar.
46'
SECOND HALF: We're back underway. It could be a long second half for Fulham if things don't change.
46'
HALF TIME: A routine first half for Man City who are in complete control at the break.
48'
Cancelo drives forward again from full back and slips Mahrez away to the by-line. He keeps the ball in play and drills it across the six-yard box. Anderson is there to clear under the nose of Jesus.
50'
Crossbar! Fulham press a few more men forward but City nick it off Lookman and Jesus sets up De Bruyne from 15 yards. He whips a lovely effort high above Areola but the ball rockets back off the woodwork.
56'
Save! City on the counter are devastating. Fulham work a corner short but waste it. Mahrez comes away with it and sends De Bruyne away on goal. He's only got Areola to beat but the goalkeeper is out quickly to narrow the space and block the shot. Great goalkeeping.
61'
The difference in quality between the two in attack is pretty staggering. Fulham have run down so many dead ends in the final third. City just find the right pass every time. No shots on target for Fulham.
65'
Chance! City work a corner short and get De Bruyne free on the edge of the box. He smashes one first time that doesn't test Areola. That was his sixth effort on goal this afternoon.
68'
Substitution: Reed is replaced by Lemina.
70'
Chance! City carry such a threat from set pieces. De Bruyne whips one in and finds it way through to Dias about 12 yards out. He swings a left boot at it but it flies over the crossbar.
72'
Substitution: Kamara is on for Decordova-Reid. He'll play through the middle.
74'
Fulham's passing has been quite appalling. Adarabioyo plays one straight to De Bruyne who sends through Jesus down the right. The defender does well to keep pace with the striker and makes up for his error by winning a goal kick.
78'
City break from another long-range Fulham shot which goes straight down Ederson's throat. The keeper's long pass forward is brilliantly taken by Mahrez who wins a foul 30 yards out. De Bruyne clips it in and Dias should do better, volleying off target with his left foot from close range.
80'
Cavaleiro is the latest Fulham player to try his luck from range but his effort from 25 yards out - like the rest of his team-mates recent efforts from distance - is a harmless one and flies wide.
82'
Substitution: Cairney comes on for Loftus-Cheek.
85'
Cairney immediately has an opportunity to influence the game with a free-kick out wide. City clear the cross and Anguissa's ball back into the area is easily claimed by Ederson. Waste.
90'
Two minutes of added time.
92'
FULL TIME: There goes the final whistle. City up to fourth with a comfortable win over Fulham.
