Numbers game: Fulham (A)

We break down the statistics from City's 2-1 away win at Fulham.

Niclas Eliasson grabbed his eight assist of the season on his birthday, crossing for Josh Brownhill's first-half header which opened the scores. Famara Diédhiou started and finished an attack as City doubled their lead, before Aboubakar Kamara halves the scores.

City would survive a late penalty appeal and Fulham would hit the crossbar but the Robins would secure all three points in West London to go fourth in the Sky Bet Championship.
