See What Guardiola Said After Man City Beat Bournemouth 3 – 1


Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said his team’s extra quality in attack made the difference as the champions powered to a 3-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday.

Sergio Aguero struck twice to take his career goal tally to 400, while Raheem Sterling was also on target with his fifth goal in the opening three Premier League games.

Their second victory this season ensured second-placed City remained two points behind leaders Liverpool.

Speaking in a post match press conference, Guardiola acknowledged his side had been forced to work hard for the win.

He highlighted the ruthlessness of City’s finishing as the decisive factor on a hot day at Dean Court.

“It was a tough game, we knew it'd be. We've seven points. We should've nine, except it’s OK.

“It’s a nice three points except we've a few things to improve. They we are stronger than us in the boxes. Except the quality of our players in front made the difference,” he said.
