"We can not compare, he's one of the most successful managers, he showed similar style and it's possible to play the way his team [do] in this competition". Fulham became the latest to more or less accept defeat at base camp.

However, coach Pep Guardiola said they could have scored more goals and they must be more clinical in front of the goal.

- Sane's opener for Manchester City was the quickest goal in the Premier League this season so far, at one minute 36 seconds. Restored to the team after recent criticism, the Germany winger capped a memorable week after becoming a father to a baby girl with a goal.

"They had been calling me since December, asking me to come and play for them".

Although the midfielder had clearly impressed Guardiola by this stage, the Manchester City boss has revealed that it didn't take him long to get the seal of approval from Lionel Messi. Everybody is here because after three seasons I want to work with them and I think they want to work with us.

It proved to be an ominous snapshot of what was to come as City broke through nearly at will throughout the first half, with the impressive Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero both firing tame efforts on goal. The team eventually won the game 3-0, courtesy of goals from Leroy Sane, David Silva and Raheem Sterling.

The Catalan won 14 trophies in four seasons in charge, before moving on to Bayern Munich for three years to cement his status as a leading thinker in the game.

"It's like he explains it to you and you grasp it straight away". And this goes for all areas, from the goalkeeper through to the striker. So, yes, I've improved in that sense.

"Ten years ago, the idea that 2018 would bring a fourth consecutive profitable year for Manchester City, may well have been rejected as fanciful by some commentators", Al-Mubarak added.

"We [Sane and Guardiola] both know what I have to do".

He has certainly started this season with a bang as City look to become the first team to defend the Premier League title in nearly a decade.

Guardiola called for Sane - who has played just 30 minutes in the league this season - to bounce back, but said it was too early to judge the former Schalke attacker.

"I've always said that I'd like to play for Las Palmas- my local team".
