Report & Ratings: Bournemouth 0-2 Man City – 13/02/17
City moved up to second in the Premier League with a hard-fought victory over Bournemouth on Monday evening
Having started on the bench again, Sergio Aguero appeared after just 14 minutes as Gabriel Jesus went off with what appeared to be an ankle injury.
But it was Raheem Sterling who grabbed the opener from close range on the half-hour mark, when a deflected cross by Leroy Sane fell kindly to him.
The Cherries thought they had replied immediately, but Joshua King’s strike was ruled out for pulling John Stones’ shirt in the build-up.
Harry Arter’s curling shot stretched Willy Caballero into a fine save, before Tyrone Mings put City’s second into his own net under pressure from Aguero.
Leroy Sane struck the bar late on and the remainder of the game was pretty straight forward for the Blues as they extended their unbeaten run to five games in all competitions.
