Bournemouth boss Howe rues facing 'outstanding' Sterling after record goal

Bournemouth boss Howe rues facing 'outstanding' Sterling after record goal

Manchester City won their 6th consecutive Premier League game thanks to a much-improved second-half performance against Bournemouth.

Mourinho joked recently that United's slow starts are causing his hair to turn white.

The 21-year-old showed he is made of tough stuff having broken his nose in Saturday's 3-1 home win over Bournemouth.

On Saturday, perhaps it was no surprise United struggled early on with Mourinho reacting to a crisis at centre back by fielding a back three featuring centre midfielders Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay. "Today we had a reason for the fragility".

Tom Cleverley is thought to be closing in on a return to first-team action after being out for nearly a year, whilst Daryl Janmaat is also expected to be within in contention in the very near future. "It's about that appetite, that fire that you have".

Southampton's Stuart Armstrong fired an unstoppable shot past David de Gea after 13 minutes and the Spanish goalkeeper was beaten again by a curling Cedric Soares free kick into the top corner.

That sparked what is fast becoming a trademark recovery from United.

Europe is a top priority for the club and Gundogan said the defeats to Jurgen Klopp's side last season showed how they can not afford any slip-ups if they are to win the Champions League. (With) Raheem Sterling it was not one day. After all, Bournemouth just can't keep him down.

We should do the same at times and I think in the second half we did it better. Substitutes: Alves (5), Choupo-Moting (6), Rabiot (N/A).


Their hopes of producing a stunning upset were dashed as the champions struck back through Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Guendogan and City moved clear of second-placed Liverpool ahead of their derby match against Everton today. Pep Guardiola said City would not go unbeaten last season despite their record of no defeats in the first five months, and Gundogan said the focus is.

City were stunned in the 44th minute when Callum Wilson headed Bournemouth's equaliser from a Simon Francis cross.

It has been 29 years and 11 league games since Watford last defeated Manchester City and their chances of doing so tonight at Vicarage Road are, those spoofers who tell us it matters more when you've got money on it, so far over to none than slim is feeling as isolated as the Prime Minister.

Michael Obafemi fed Armstrong inside the area and from a tight angle the Scottish worldwide smashed the ball confidently past De Gea for his third goal in two league games. Capoue (who picked up a red card last time out) Mariappa & Deulofeu are out!

"The doctors told me (on Friday) Sergio can not play", Guardiola said. "I needed to make an impact".

Jamie Vardy opened the scoring with a penalty after 12 minutes before James Maddison netted a brilliant volley to move Leicester up to eighth.

I expect Manchester City to line up in the usual 4-3-3 and to attack from the outset.
