Raheem Sterling was Manchester City’s saviour once again as his late goal winner spared their blushes at the Vitality Stadium, securing a 2-1 win over Bournemouth before getting sent off.
Pep Guardiola, Manchester City Manager wanted an explanation after Raheem Sterling was sent off following his 97th-minute winner against AFC Bournemouth. He was shown a second yellow card by referee Mike Dean.
The home side took a lead in the 13 min, when Charlie Daniels drilled home a stunning half-volley off the crossbar from the edge of the area. Man City equalised eight minutes later with their first shot on target, with David Silva picking out Gabreil Jesus with a perfectly weighted pass for the Brazilian to roll the ball home.
The visitors dominated the rest of the half without adding to their score. Both teams had their chances after the break, with AFC Bournemouth’s Joshua King and Manchester City’s Nicolas Otamendi hitting the post.
King had another opportunity to win it for the hosts when he outmuscled Benjamin Mendy, but his shot was aimed straight at Ederson.
