Assist of the season contender: Alvaro Negredo for James Milner (Fulham 2 – Man City 4)
- December 21, 2013
Alvaro Negredo has had a terrific start to English football and whilst the Spaniard didn’t score today, he showed his quality late on.
Manchester City’s away form took another real examination at Craven Cottage but after Vincent Kompany’s crazy own goal they came back to clinch all three points with goals from Jesus Navas and James Milner.
The English midfielder, who had come on as a substitute, scored eight minutes after coming on and whilst Milner showed great finishing prowess yet again (after that goal v Bayern Munich) it was made by a delicious pass from Negredo.
Wide on the right, Negredo’s cross fell perfecly round Aaron Hughes in the centre of Fulham’s defence for the fourth.
