Man City turn on the style

6:43 pm on 22 November 2010

Manchester City turned on the style in front of Diego Maradona to humble Fulham 4-1 and reclaim fourth place in the English Premier football League.

Maradona, a guest of Fulham at Craven Cottage, watched his Argentine compatriot Carlos Tevez score twice as City eased the pressure on manager Roberto Mancini.

Mancini's multi-million-pound squad had scored only three goals and taken five points from their last five matches to leave their fans frustrated with the Italian and his cautious style.

In today's other game, Blackburn Rovers gave their new Indian owners an immediate return with a 2-nil victory over Aston Villa at Ewood Park.
