Aguero double helps Man City extend record over Bournemouth

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero scored twice for the Premier League champions to secure a 3-1 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality stadium on Sunday afternoon. City have now won all nine games against Bournemouth since the inception of the Premier League, the longest winning run against a single club.

Aguero opened the scoring in the 15th minute before Raheem Sterling extended the lead in the 43rd minute. Bournemouth pulled one back with a sublime free-kick just before the end of the first half but Aguero had the final say with a close-range finish after the hour mark.

Raheem Sterling’s goal today ensures that his fantastic goal-scoring run against the Cherries continue. The England international has now scored nine goals in his last eight appearances against Bournemouth.

Manchester City were overwhelming favourites but the champions got off to a funny start as Kyle Walker and Ederson picked up yellow cards before the half-hour mark.


The Citizens had been in early control of the game, dominating possession and keeping the ball but the champions were lucky not to have the Brazilian shot-stopper sent off.

The opening goal came in the 15th minute through club record-goalscorer, Sergio Aguero. The Argentine striker got on the end of a miscued shot by Kevin De Bryune and guided the ball into the back of the net past Ramsdale.

Things got even worse for the home side after Charlie Daniels picked up an injury and needed to be subbed off before the end of the first half.

The full back was involved in a collision with Kyle Walker and seemed to have severely injured himself. He was replaced by Harry Wilson.

The champions extended their lead just before the end of the first half through Raheem Sterling after the England international got on the end of a David Silva pass with a fine run.

With the ball in the air, the former Liverpool forward poked the ball into the net with his right foot.


Bournemouth got back into the game a few minutes later through Harry Wilson’s free-kick.

Striker, Callum Wilson was brought down in a dangerous area in front of the box and the left foot of Harry Wilson sent the ball flying past Ederson into the top corner of the net.

The second half began just like the first with Manchester City pressuring the defence of the home team.

The Citizens went close to extending their lead through De Bruyne but not after Ederson needed a big save to deny Bournemouth from drawing level through Callum Wilson.


The Premier League champions finally got their third goal through Sergio Aguero with a finish from close range.

The Argentine was played through on goal by today’s captain David Silva and the former Atletico Madrid man ensured that Guardiola’s men had a two-goal lead.


Man City continued to put pressure on the Bournemouth defence with Raheem Sterling missing a few chances.

De Bruyne and Aguero continued to peg the Cherries’ defenders back and the introduction of Riyadh Mahrez prevented the home side from committing bodies forward.

The Blues of Manchester held on for a win as they aim to defend their Premier League title. City currently have 7 points after winning two games and drawing one this season.

Bournemouth have four points, drawing one game and winning their last game before losing to City today.

Manchester City play Brighton for their next Premier League game at the Etihad while Bournemouth travel to the King Power stadium to face Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi’s Leicester City side.
