Sterling delights Guardiola but City boss still wants more

The match starts at 21:00 on 4 December 2018.

City were without Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez at the Etihad but normal service resumed as they took the lead against Bournemouth after 16 minutes through Bernardo Silva.

Saints had not won in nine league games and had scored only four goals at St Mary's, but they made a flying start as Mourinho's decision to play midfielder Scott McTominay at the heart of his defence quickly backfired.

"After the Champions League, it is always tough", Guardiola said.

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

The opener was the sixth time this season that United have conceded a goal in the first 15 minutes of a match. "Accordingly, he can manage everything, so we can access our potential, just like we did in recent weeks". Bournemouth are so fast up front and so hard to play against.

Everton are another, with their sights set on Europa League qualification, but Watford, perhaps alongside Bournemouth and Leicester, are in a group of teams that are unlikely to qualify for Europe, but more significantly, also too strong to worry about relegation.

Mathias Jorgensen opened the scoring for Huddersfield in the first minute, but they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Brighton, who came from behind to win for the first time in the Premier League.

The Hornets will know that they will need to be at their very best against Pep Guardiola's side to have any chance of coming away from the game with a positive result.

By contrast, the finish for his goal was relatively straightforward, albeit after a stylish build-up, as he fed a pass for Danilo to shoot, then swept in the rebound after goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has failed to hold the ball. Bournemouth created serious problems at the back for City, and Callum Wilson equalised on the verge of halftime with a powerful header from 10 yards. "They didn't really cut through us with attractive football and we kick ourselves for that". "It was a good time to score, right on half time".

We find ourselves in a unusual moment as City fans where many in the media seem to be cheerleading for City to slip up, to either make the League more entertaining or as part of some ongoing anti-City bias. After that the way we played that people like.

Hunt said he wanted her to leave, but was vague on details. "But it's no excuse for me to act that way". I just want to take this time and better myself and not let anything happen like this ever again.
