Man of the Match
None of City's men were at their brilliant best today, although my Man of the Match award goes to Aguero.

The Argentine was a menace for the Cherries backline throughout and took his chances when they fell his way.



Full-time: Bournemouth 1-3 Man City
The Cherries put in a hard-working, heartful display, although in the end were simply outclassed by Guardiola's side.

The Blues weren't at their best today, however, a few moments of brilliance lead to them earning all three points on the south coast.

Ake's sliding interception following de Bruyne's pass prevents Sterling from going through on goal. 
There will be four additional minutes.
A final change for City - Cancelo comes on for his debut, replacing Walker.
Otamendi is fouled for a late tackle on King.
Solanke picks the ball up and beats Otamendi for pace before firing with his left foot straight at Ederson.
City simply holding possession and looking to run the clock down. 

Bournemouth have made a real contest of days encounter, although look to be tiring now.

Mahrez replaces Bernardo.
King working like a man possessed as he tries to get his side back into the game.

Since the introduction of Rodri, City have dominated the ball as they look to see the game out.

Billing is down receiving treatment following a catch in the face from Bernardo. The Cherries have no changes left, so he'll have to continue.
A double change for Bournemouth - Solanke and Ibe replace Callum Wilson and Smith
Goal! Aguero gets his second!
Aguero lays the ball off to David Silva, who is dispossessed inside the area before the ball falls back to the Argentine to stab home for his second of the game!

Breathing space for the visitors.

Shouts for a penalty as David Silva goes down inside the area. Andre Marriner waves away the protests.
First change for City - Rodri replaces Gundogan.
Callum Wilson gets on the end of a through-ball, one on one with Ederson, and fires straight at the Brazilian.

Another big stop from the City 'keeper.

Ramsdale again denies David Silva from close range, following the Spaniards turn and strike inside the area. 
The Bournemouth fans aren't happy that Sterling has got away with a late tackle on Wilson without a booking. 

"You don't know what you're doing" cry the home support.

We're back underway in the second half!
Half-time: Bournemouth 1-2 Man City
An intriguing first half in the sun comes to an end with City narrowly in the lead.

Bournemouth have been well in the contest and maybe would've felt hard done by to be two down.

Wilson's strike right on the half time mark leaves the home side in with a chance!

Goal! Wilson halves the deficit!
Wilson does take advantage from the free-kick, striking right into the top corner. No chance for Ederson. The Cherries back in the game!
Laporte fouls Wilson on the edge of the area. A chance, perhaps for Wilson, in a dangerous position!
There will be six additional minutes!
Goal! City double their lead!
Sterling gets his fifth of the campaign!

David Silva brilliantly spots the run inside from Sterling, who knicks in front of the full-back, takes one touch to control and fires past Ramsdale - terrific goal.

Glorious chance for the Cherries!

Wilson's cross into the area is chested down by Otamendi right into the path of Smith, who unmarked, somehow fired at Ederson from close range.

Cook's long throw into the area is met by Ake, who scuffs his effort goalwards, leaving Ederson with a comfortable save.
Wilson is on to replace the injured Daniels.
Daniels is down with a knee injury following an attempted cross into the area. The stretcher is on and it looks like he's going to be replaced.
Aguero works and opening, puts the ball onto his left foot and fires goalwards, however, Bournemouth get numbers back behind the ball and manage to deflect the shot wide.
Despite their positive start, Bournemouth have struggled to get at City as much since the goal.

The champions are starting to dominate possession, waiting calmly for a chance to double their lead.

Zinchenko again whips the ball in from the left, with it eventually falling to the feet of Silva, who volleys at Ramsdale with his right foot - good save.
Goal! Aguero opens the scoring!
Following Bournemouth's positive start, City take the lead.

Zinchenko flies down the left, plays the ball into de Bruyne who scuffs his shot to the feet of Aguero for a tap in. 

Perfect start for the champions.

A long ball in behind is latched onto by Wilson before the striker is brought down by Ederson, who had advanced well off of his line.

The crowd shout for the Brazilian to be sent off, however, the referee decides to book him.

Walker is dispossessed by Ake, and is yellow carded after he follows through on his man for the second time in the first 10 minutes. 
City's first big chance of the game.

Silva plays the ball out to Sterling, who cuts it back to the edge of the box were Bernardo waits, before sweeping just wide - so close!

Zinchenko goes off to receive treatment on his mouth following a coming together with Smith.
King dispossesses de Bruyne and shoots from distance straight at Ederson. A first attempt of the game from the Cherries, one more attempt than they managed in this fixture last season!
We're underway!
We're underway in the sunshine on the south coast!
The teams are in the tunnel
The teams are in the tunnel and we're almost ready for kick-off at the Vitality Stadium.
Wilson benched
Perhaps one of the more surprising bits of team news is that Harry Wilson has been benched by Howe.

The Welshman has been impressive so far for the Cherries and netted in last weekends win over Villa.

400 appearances for Silva
David Silva will lead his side out on the south coast in what will be his 400th appearance for the club.

Ths Spaniard has been one of the most influential players of the Sheikh Mansour era, and will go down as a true City legend.

Team news is in!
Bournemouth XI: Ramsdale; Smith, Mepham, Cook, Daniels; Lerma, Ake, Billing; King, Fraser, Wilson.

Man City XI: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Zinchenko; Gundogan, Silva, De Bruyne; Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero.

Back closer to kick-off
I'll be back closer to kick-off as more news breaks ahead of this matchup, including team news from 13:00 BST.
Predicted XI's
Bournemouth predicted XI: Ramsdale; Smith, Mepham, Cook, Ake, Rico; Billing, Lerma; Fraser, King; Wilson.​

Man City predicted XI: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Cancelo; Fernandinho, De Bruyne, D. Silva; B. Silva, Sterling, Aguero.

Citizens team news
Guardiola has been more fortunate on the injury front as of late, almost leading to him having a fully fit squad.

Benjamin Mendy is still absent with a knee injury, whilst John Stones will face a late fitness test.

Cherries team news
The south-coasters will be without seven senior players after a series of injuries has left Howe with somewhat of a nightmare.

Long-term absentees Lewis Cook and Simon Francis continue to receive treatment for their long-term injuries, with Junior Stanislas having also been sidelined since last season.


Midfield duo David Brooks and Dan Gosling both have muscular problems and will also be out for an extended period of time.


Finally, Howe is without summer signings Lloyd Kelly and Arnaut Groeneveld, both of whom damaged ankle ligaments during pre-season.

Last time out
Eddie Howe's men travelled to Villa Park last weekend in their first away game of the season and clinched all three points with an impressive 2-1 win. The Cherries have picked up four points from their first two games and would love three more against the champions here.

Despite dominating vs Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, City were held to a 2-2 draw with more VAR controversy denying them of all three points. City won their first game, meaning that like Bournemouth they have recorded four points thus far.

Kick-off time
The kick-off time for this encounter is 14:00 BST on Sunday. With many of City's rivals playing on Saturday, it is up to them to respond and keep the pressure on Liverpool at the top of the league.
