Guardiola's Man City no longer vulnerable to Madrid and Barca's market muscle

Guardiola's Man City no longer vulnerable to Madrid and Barca's market muscle

Manchester City overcame a spirited Bournemouth side 3-1 yesterday to maintain their unbeaten streak and extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points.

Gabriel Jesus started the win against Bournemouth, but the Brazil global has struggled this season with just one Premier League goal - scored back in August.

Sterling restored City's lead with a close-range finish early in the second half after Bournemouth had gone in level at the interval when Callum Wilson's header cancelled out Bernardo Silva's opener.

Ilkay Gundogan tapped in Leroy Sane's cross for the crucial third goal for City in the 79th as the leaders won a sixth straight game.

The Argentina worldwide was held out of Saturday's 3-1 win over Bournemouth with a muscle injury, and he is doubtful to face Watford and Chelsea this week after Pep Guardiola revealed club doctors warned him Aguero could be ruled out until January if he aggravated the problem.

When asked about Sane's maturity, Pep explained: "I'm pretty sure becoming a father helps in many senses". We will see. I base my decisions on doctors, physios, instinct and what I see. "Accordingly, he can manage everything, so we can access our potential, just like we did in recent weeks".

It was a landmark moment for former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola, who said: "My 400th win as a manager?"

After a flat first half, Guardiola singled out Sterling for invigorating the champions in the second period.

Leicester recorded their first home win in the league since September with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Watford.

Riyad Mahrez will be used often over the busy Christmas schedule, making it tough to determine how Guardiola will rotate his men.

Rashford's profligacy in front of goal against Young Boys in the Champions League in midweek provoked Mourinho to display his frustration on the sidelines. How many can they score tonight?

"We were flat but after, we were more aggressive and we changed the game".

"In the first half Raheem was not involved and in the second half he changed the game". Sane did not start any of City's opening four Premier League games and had his attitude publicly questioned by Germany team-mate Toni Kroos. I have to listen to what the club thinks about it because if the results are not good maybe I'll not be here or I don't know what happens in the future in our world.

Guardiola is not concerned about Gabriel Jesus' lack of goals and said his work ethic is helping the team as they try to defend their Premier League title.
