Manchester City fans react on Twitter to Yaya Toure's display vs Fulham - "The best midfielder in the world..."

Manchester City kept the pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea with a convincing 5-0 win over struggling Fulham.

Goals from Fernandinho, Martin Demichelis and a Yaya Toure hat-trick gave Manuel Pellegrini's side a crucial win after Chelsea saw off Arsenal in a 6-0 triumph earlier in the day.

The win puts City up into third place in the Premier League table, just six points behind Jose Mourinho's Blues - but City still have three games in hand, which could see them take first place.

It was impressive to see City coast to victory without the likes of Vincent Kompany, Jesus Navas and Sergio Aguero, but the star performance came from hat-trick hero Toure, who bagged two penalties and a stunning long range strike to put City 3-0 up before he was hauled off for Jack Rodwell.

City fans on Twitter were evidently delighted with the Ivorian's display, suggesting he is the best central midfielder in the world and that he is a club legend.
