Man City can't think of the quadruple, says Guardiola

Aguero fired his 19th league goal of the campaign as City leapfrogged Liverpool and back to the top of the table with a facile victory at Craven Cottage. After the goals we controlled it. They had the game wrapped up, Fulham didn't have a shot on target, they just played at a suffocating glide, which in itself is impressive because they don't need to make any more statements about being able to score five goals in a game.

Kewvin McDonald came on for Babel for Fulham, with Riyad Mahrez replacing Sterling for City, the home side creating one last half-chance to set up a dramatic finish when Schurrle's low ball into the area took a couple of risky deflections before being held by Ederson.

Guardiola has warned that City may have to win all their remaining matches to claim the Quadruple, but Gundogan said: "I think as long as you are able to maintain challenging in every single competition, you feel happy - that's how I feel".

Liverpool will leapfrog City at the top of the table if they beat Spurs.

City face Cardiff City at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday and Guardiola insisted his players were focused on winning all of their seven remaining league games as they aim to retain the Premier League title, saying they would "enjoy the momentum, keep going and dream to win". But AGUERO did it in 46 fewer games.

Fulham is 13 points from safety with 18 points to play for. "That result proved to us what we can achieve". The way we start to play shows me they want to try.' The way they talk, too, suggests City mean business.

They will also continues their quest for their first European glory this term when they battle Tottenham in the quarterfinals of the Champions League next month. 'If we were not in good shape we couldn't be where we are right now.
