    That's it from me. But get yourself over to our main Premier League live to get all the reaction from today's games right here.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    All over. Straightforward win for Manchester City, and Fulham will probably take 3-0 too after going a goal behind inside two minutes.

  3. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Oooh, Aleksandar Mitrovic with a rare effort on goal for the visitors, but Ederson deals with it and pushes away the Serbia forward's striker for a corner.

  4. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Three minutes added on...

    Manchester City looking comfortably in control. Kyle Walker fancies his chances from long range, but that strikes a defender - saw his name in lights, like against Newcastle.

  5. Foden stays on the bench

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Another afternoon on the bench for Manchester City youngster Phil Foden.

    Pep Guardiola was adamant yesterday that Foden will get a chance this season. But he has featured for just eight minutes in City's opening five Premier League games, a substitute appearance against Huddersfield.

    In contrast, Ryan Sessegnon, who is also 18, is about to complete the full 90 for Fulham.

    Sessegnon may not have liked today much but he will look back on it as a valuable part of his education.

  6. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Less than five minutes to go then, but both sides have eased off the pace here.

  7. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    This time for Gabriel Jesus?

    No, he opts to tee up Bernardo Silva instead, but this blazing-over-the-bar trick is catching, and the diminutive playmaker hammers high into the Manchester evening sky.

    Oh dear...

  8. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Half chance for Gabriel Jesus, who looks desperate for a goal, as he cuts inside from Ilkay Gundogan's pass only to hammer high over the crossbar.

    He's not impressed.

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    And that's it for Raheem Sterling today, Riyad Mahrez takes his place.

  10. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    You get the feeling when City really want to they can flick a switch and add another.

    Raheem Sterling has been lively, but his cross is booted away as Fulham dig in.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Fulham are going to mix it up, too.

    Luciano Vietto off for Floyd Ayite.

    This game's in danger of going a little stale...

  12. One eye on Europe

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport at the Etihad Stadium

    Victory is now secure so City could be forgiven if they start looking ahead to Wednesday's Champions League opener against Lyon.

    One semi-final is not much of a return on Sheikh Mansour's £1.3bn investment over the past three years. Under Pep Guardiola all City have managed is one quarter-final appearance and a disappointing exit in the last 16.

    As Sheikh Mansour said in a letter to the fans in today's programme, City are only halfway up their Mount Everest.

    That trophy with the big ears is presumably right at the very top.

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Change in formation for City? Or just in personnel?

    Fabian Delph goes off, Ilkay Gundogan comes on.

    Looks like Fernandinho to right-back and Kyle Walker over to the left.

  14. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Slack at the back from Aymeric Laporte as Manchester City give Fulham a sniff, only to recover almost as quickly as they gave the ball away.

    It almost kicks the champions into life, and Raheem Sterling wriggles forward before seeing his effort deflected wide.

  15. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    The chances are coming Gabriel Jesus' way since his arrival.

    Raheem Sterling whips a lovely ball across towards the penalty spot, but the Brazil forward hangs a left leg at it and can only help it way over the bar.

    He was all alone in the middle, not sure where the Fulham defence got to...

    Simon Goodall: Man City a bit lethargic at the start of the half. It took them 97 seconds to score in the first half, but 98 seconds to score in the second half.

  17. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Fernandinho is a real all-action midfielder, winning the ball back, driving forward and firing narrowly wide - Pep Guardiola looks on without any hint of a smile.

    Matthew Upson

    Former Arsenal defender at Etihad Stadium for 5 live Sport

    This has been some start after the interval by Manchester City! I don't know what they've had in their half-time oranges...

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    Fulham are going to make a change. Jean Michael Seri makes way for Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.

  20. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Fulham

    The Brazilian almost nets with his first touch of the ball.

    Brilliant combination from Leroy Sane and David Silva, with the Spaniard driving a low ball into the front post, only for Jesus to see his effort bundled wide.
