Manchester City dropped their first points of the campaign allowing Fulham to claw back a two-goal deficit in the 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage.

Manchester City looked well on course for a another three points as they took a tow goal lead just a minute into the second-half, but credit Fulham for rallying bravely to take a point out of a game that looked lost at the break.

City boss Roberto Mancini will be regretting the chances missed in a first period dominated by the visitor’s but only had a Sergio Aguero goal to show for it, mainly because of the goalkeeping heroics of Mark Schwarzer.

Aguero took his season’s tally to eight a minute into the second half but once Bobby Zamora gave Fulham a lifeline in the 55th minute it was the host’s who looked the more dangerous.

Danny Murphy's shot was then deflected in-off Vincent Kompany to earn a point.

Referee: Mark Clattenburg

Venue: Craven Cottage

Attendance: 24,750

Fulham scorers: Zamora 55, Murphy 75

TRIBAL ASKS: Is Mancini going down Wenger’s path? Buying forwards and midfielders when in reality it’s defenders that are wanted.
