Manchester City have recorded a dramatic 2-1 victory over Bournemouth after Raheem Sterling netted in the seventh minute of added-on time in their Premier League fixture at the Vitality Stadium.
Raheem Sterling’s deflected effort from a Danilo cross in additional time was enough to give City a win in what was an exciting game of football.
Charlie Daniels had given the Cherries a early lead when he blazzed a goal of the season contender past a helpless Ederson on thirteen the minutes. A goal that gave Bournemouth fans a glimpse of hope.
But that joy was cut short eight minutes later when Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Jesus netted his first goal of the season and eight in total for City in eleven Premier League starts. From then on, it was all City in the first half as they pressed for a second before the interval.
Bournemouth came out strong in the second half and they would have thought they had done enough until Sterling’s late strike.
Josh king could have won it with a low shot that was tipped away by Ederson a few seconds before Raheem Sterling struck the winner in front of travelling City fans.
Sterling saw red after he was shown a second yellow for excessive celebration.
Pep Guardiola would be happy with the result having cut out a frustrated figure for most part of the game. City go top of the League before other teams complete their third round of matches but they know they’d have to give more to remain there.
