Premier League: Man City stay behind Liverpool despite Bournemouth win

Two goals from Sergio Aguero and a Raheem Sterling strike eased Manchester City to a 3-1 win at Bournemouth.

Aguero opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a cool finish from inside the box before Raheem Sterling doubled City’s advantage two minutes before the break after being played in by David Silva.

Bournemouth were given a lifeline in first-half stoppage time when substitute Harry Wilson – on for the injured Charlie Daniels – curled home a superb free kick to reduce the gap to 2-1.

But Aguero showed his poaching skills again in the 64th minute to smash home his second after more good work from man-of-the-match Silva, who was making his 400th City appearance.

The result moves City up to second place in the table, two points behind last season’s main rivals Liverpool.
