Premiership: Fulham 1-4 Manchester City

Manchester City has come to within three points of the top of the Premiership. With Carlos Tevez rising to the occassion, Man City won over Fulham 1-4 at Craven Cottage.

The game's outcome must be a blow to Hughes and his men. Only a year ago, Carlos Tevez was winning for current Fulham manager, Mark Hughes in his tenure as magager of Man City. Now City's new manager, Roberto Mancini, is reaping the benefit of both Hughes' signings and Tevez's goal scoring abilities as Tevez scored two goals and was named Man of the Match.

Mancini's well funded team is now strongly in the running in the Premier League title hunt.

Pablo Zabaleta and Yaya Toure struck within a three-minute period at the end of the first half after Tevez had scored foir Man City.

Zoltan Gera netted a consolation for the visitors, but Tevez had already scored a fourth for the Blues.

Hughes was controversially dumped in favour of Mancini last December.

Tevez is Manchester City's successful buy in the Abu Dhabi era. Tevez was the stand-out signing of Hughes' time in charge, The wages, estimated at £220,000, are still so colossal they are too stunning to be believed.

Hughes and his team are now in a relegation position and he can only watch as Man City challenges for the marquis team honours.
