Manchester City continued their unbeaten Premier League start with a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday at the Etihad, their sixth league win in a row.
City took the lead on 16 minutes through Bernardo Silva’s shot through a crowd from 15 yards, but Bournemouth got a deserved equaliser late in the half as Callum Wilson’s fine header found the top corner (44).
Raheem Sterling hit the post after the break following a mazy run, but got his goal on 57 minutes, converting from close range after Asmir Begovic had spilled Danilo’s shot, before Ilkay Gundogan got City’s third from six yards from Leroy Sane’s centre (80).
The result means City are five points clear at the top of the Premier League, with second-place Liverpool facing Everton on Super Sunday. Bournemouth move down to ninth.
