Man City defeats Bournemouth 3-1 in Premier League

Man City defeats Bournemouth 3-1 in Premier League

Manchester City moved five points clear of the chasing pack of the English Premier League with a hard-fought 3-1 home win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Citizens continued their fine form and made it six consecutive victories in the league after goals from Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan sealed the win after Callum Wilson had equalised for the Cherries.

"The doctors told me (on Friday) Sergio can not play", Guardiola said.

Pep Guardiola's side racked up their sixth successive league win thanks to a second half surge after Bournemouth shocked the Etihad Stadium.

And although Sterling has now equalled his league total of eight, Guardiola acknowledged Aguero would be missed if he doesn't recover for the trip to Watford in midweek.

It was not the most convincing performance from City, which really got on top only after Sterling's goal, but the result piles the pressure on second-place Liverpool ahead of its Merseyside derby against Everton on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp has claimed he feels that opponents show more respect towards title rivals Manchester City than his Liverpool side. That's bullshit, and you know it.

But, the Citizen coach is not anxious about that and asks him to relax and keep helping Manchester City to win.

"In the first half Raheem was not involved and in the second half he changed the game".

And in his first full season, the highly-rated forward scored 17 goals in 42 games across all competitions as Pep found a rotational policy with Aguero that worked with aplomb as they romped to the Premier League title.

By then, Drennan and Anthony had returned to England and heard from a friend about the NYPD's social media campaign to find them. Based on a cursory glance at Daniella's Facebook page, it appears she and John have been a couple for some years.

"A good win, after the Champions League it is always tough".

Yet from what seemed a position of control, City uncharacteristically switched off in the latter stages of the first half, allowing Bournemouth back into the game. "The other two, I don't know".

The hosts needed only 16 minutes to break the deadlock, Silva tucking into an empty net after Asmir Begovic was only able to parry as Leroy Sane attempted to get on the end of Oleksandr Zinchenko's ball over the top.

In December 2007, Kaka won the Ballon d'Or and he wouldn't have known what a historic moment it would be for the Brazilian. The striker has shown no signs of slowing down either, scoring 11 goals in just 18 appearances so far for the Bianconeri.

Brighton responded to conceding a goal after 55 seconds - the earliest strike in the Premier League this season - to win 2-1 at 10-man Huddersfield, and Leicester beat Watford 2-0. People think it's easy for us but that is not the truth, so I like to win in this way. But we have a coach who sets an example of perfection every single day through his work on the training ground and when addressing the squad.
