Manchester City top Premier League after defeating Fulham

Manchester City are back to top of the Premier League table after grabbing a 2-1 win over Fulham today, April 30.

Haaland converted a penalty in the third minute, but Carlos Vinicius pulled Fulham level after 15 minutes with a fine finish.

Man City restored the lead in the 35th minute after Julian Alvarez unleashed a stunning effort from distance which looped over Leno and into the top corner.

Haaland who bagged his 34th goal during the match, is now level with Andy Cole and Alan Shearer for most goals in a single Premier League season. Cole and Shearer scored their 34 in 42-game seasons, and Haaland already owns the 38-game record after passing Mohamed Salah’s 2017-18 campaign. The Norwegian has scored 50 goals in all competitions this season.

Fulham remains in 10th place with 45 points, but lost Tim Ream and Andreas Pereira to injuries during the match.

Man City are now on top of the table with 76 points to Arsenal’s 75 and also have one extra game to play.
