David Silva struck in each half as champions Manchester City cut Manchester United's lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League to four points following a 2-0 victory over Fulham.
The Spaniard fired home a rebound after just two minutes and then struck a sublime second in the 69th minute as the champions enjoyed a comfortable win at the Etihad Stadium.
Silva could have completed a hat-trick moments later but shot narrowly wide. City will hope the victory puts pressure back on United ahead of their tricky trip to Tottenham.
