Man City edge Bournemouth to move five points clear

Manchester City made to suffer in nervy win over Watford says Pep Guardiola

The club most recently defeated Bournemouth 3-1 over the weekend, marking its sixth straight league victory.

The England winger has also eight in six top-flight appearances against Bournemouth and Guardiola pointed to a mazy dribble and shot against the post shortly before Sterling's goal as the moment City roused from a mid-game slumber that saw Callum Wilson cancel out Silva's opener.

"We had a lack of rhythm in the first half".

Among the goals in that streak was a victor seven minutes into injury time at Bournemouth in the third game of the last season.

City, who are yet to lose a match in the Premier League so far this term, now top the league table with 38 points from 14 games.

But City held on, and the result means they remain unbeaten this season and five points above Liverpool, who play at Burnley on Wednesday night.

"Doctors, physios, instinct, what I see, many reasons", Guardiola said about those who did not play.

"Unfortunately I was out of the Champions League match that I really wanted to play". In the 44th minute, Simon Francis swung in a ideal cross for Callum Wilson to rise and head home.

And when Mahrez doubled City's lead early in the second half, another convincing victory looked to be on the cards, especially with Guardiola's players having averaged over three goals per game in the Premier League during 2018. Personally I would prefer us to run away with the League and open up a relaxing cushion of points.

"I'm always confident but always doubtful at the same time because we don't start well many times", Mourinho said.

Stuart Armstrong drove home an angled finish for Southampton's opening goal in the 13th, and Cedric Soares curled a free kick into the top corner for 2-0. "I'm not here to say whether this is a better side than Bayern Munich or Barcelona". Just imagine if Watford could stun Man City!

"The doctors told me [on Friday] Sergio can not play", Guardiola said.

Brighton conceded the fastest goal in the Premier League this season after 54 seconds, but Chris Hughton's team recovered to win 2-1 at 10-man Huddersfield.

Newcastle's run of three straight wins came to an end after a 3-0 loss to West Ham at St James' Park.
