Johnny On The Spot: Wins from reigning champions don't come much more third gear than this one did. The instant David Silva pounced to seal the early goal that more often than not leads to a surefire City win, the question was simply...how many? Yet oddly, an untinkered with City chose to play well within themselves and if anything adopted a counter attacking approach which invited a Fulham side packed with wily old campaigners on to the home side for long periods. The Blues forced only one corner all game which underlines just how deep the team sat...There was a suggestion that this tactic was playing with fire, but the fact that Joe Hart didn't have a save to make and Vincent Kompany and Matija Nastasic were imperious said it all as Fulham's huff and puff was stifled. You got the feeling City could and would raise it when required... There are two areas for concern emerging from this latest crucial win. City's passing was erratic today and an overall make sure strategy saw a generally sizeable gap between central midfield and attack, yet plenty of chances were still created. However, City's strikers failed to deliver. This has been a repeat story all season and one The Blues could end up regretting although Kun Aguero showed in his brief cameo that his hunger is well and truly there...Still, City have steadily clawed back goal difference on Robin Van Persie to one goal. Then there is Pablo Zabaleta. City's ultimate warrior came off worst in a 50-50 and he will be sorely missed if out for any length of time, particularly at uncompromising Stoke in the cup next week. At the end of a frustrating day, job done. Stats Courtesy BBC Sport

Should've been ten. Very lethargic for long spells.

As things stand, we now have a -1 goal difference to the rags. After Tottenham give them a kicking tomorrow, we should have a better goal difference than them. But I can't help but feel we missed the chance to ram the goal difference right up ferguson's arse today such was our dominance. Must score more sitters is all I can say. COYS
