MANCHESTER, England(AP) Manchester City restored its three-point advantage at the top of the Premier League with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Fulham at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Argentina international Sergio Aguero scored the opening goal from the penalty spot after nine minutes, his 15th league goal of the season. Just before the half-hour, City doubled their lead when Adam Johnson's far post shot deflected into the goal off Fulham defender Chris Baird.

City were seeking to place pressure on defending champions Manchester United, who had drawn level with them at the top of the table in midweek and are scheduled to play Chelsea on Sunday.

And it proved to be a comfortable victory when striker Edin Dzeko scored the third goal after 72 minutes.
