Guardiola pleased he put faith in Sane - Premier League 2018

Raheem Sterling wrapped up a 3-0 win shortly after half-time, with promoted Fulham fortunate that David Silva was the only player able to add to Sane's second-minute opener in a dominant first-half display. Manchester City has been able to break several records ever since being bought by the Arab owners.

"When I don't like one player, at the end of the season I go to the club and say I don't want to work with that guy if it's possible and I want to change them".

According to the report, City's income has increased six-fold in the past decade and they have risen from 20th to fifth in European clubs' revenues league table.

"I want to try it".

Germany World Cup-winner Toni Kroos claimed Sane - left out of City's squad for their 2-1 win over Newcastle before the global break - must improve his attitude and body language. "It turns out I made the right move".

The 22-year-old was dropped for City's last match, against Newcastle a fortnight ago, due to concerns about his attitude and focus - despite Guardiola's public insistence that he had no issues on either front, or indeed any other.

Silva's motivation for moving to Las Palmas, who were relegated from La Liga previous year, is because he wants his son Mateo to grow up on the same island as he did.

"It was really tough", Silva said.

"It was so hard with him being in hospital for so long".

While Silva has enjoyed plenty of success at City, his time at the club has not been without challenges.

"I have two more seasons with City on my contract, but after that I don't know", he confirmed.

"I don't forget the behaviour he had last season, when he played a lot but not at the start".

However, they responded in style by beating Burnley 4-2, although manager Slavisa Jokanovic would have been disappointed to see his team squander a two-goal lead to be pegged back to a 2-2 draw by Brighton. "It depends how I feel physically and mentally", Silva said in an interview for the Premier League Show. "But we'll see how things go in two years and take it all from there".
