Carlos Tévez scored twice, sandwiching goals from Pablo Zabaletta (pictured) and Yaya Touré, to give Manchester City a much-needed 4-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage. Only Zoltán Gera’s late goal kept City from a clean sheet in a completely dominant performance by Roberto Mancini’s men. The three points take City back to fourth place, leaping back clear of Bolton for the fourth and final Champions League position. Fulham are less well off, remaining in seventeenth place and in grave danger of entering another nervous relegation battle. The win also shut up former City manager, and current Fulham boss Mark Hughes, who opined earlier in the week that City would be better off with him still in charge at Eastlands.
