After missing the previous two City games due to injury, leading scorer Haaland was only deemed fit enough to sit on the bench, so Argentine forward Julian Alvarez gave the home team the lead in the 17th minute.

The champions believed John Stones had quickly doubled their lead, but Rodri was offside in the buildup, and Fulham took advantage of the reprieve by going straight down the other end and scoring a penalty in the 26th minute.

When Fulham’s Andreas Pereira converted from the penalty spot after City defender Joao Cancelo had sent former Manchester United midfielder Harry Wilson to the ground, the score remained level going into halftime.

Despite having a numerical disadvantage, City maintained its dominance. After coming on, Haaland quickly thought he had given his team the lead back after glancing a header into the net, but VAR intervened to declare the Norwegian to be offside.

It seemed City had done all they could until Kevin De Bruyne was brought down and Haaland converted the penalty to send the Etihad Stadium into delirium in the 95th minute, as the champions moved one point clear of Arsenal at the top of the standings. Fulham stayed eighth.
