Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus fails to seize his big chance

The 1st half finished in a 1-all draw but goals from Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan secured the three points for City.

Manchester City were without the likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez at the Etihad but took the lead against Bournemouth after 16 minutes when Bernardo Silva fired in.

"A good win, after the Champions League it is always tough".

"We haven't been outplayed for many moments of the game. It's just the key moments where we haven't been clinical".

Man City are set to be without top striker Sergio Aguero for tonight's Premier League clash with Watford at Vicarage Road.

"I've been training really hard, maybe that's why I felt something in my groin last week", he said, as quoted by Manchester Evening News. "Accordingly, he can manage everything, so we can access our potential, just like we did in recent weeks".

Jamie Vardy netted a 12th-minute penalty after being fouled in the area by Hornets goalkeeper Ben Foster and James Maddison doubled their lead midway through the first half. How many can they score tonight?

The last time Newcastle had won a home Premier League game when trailing at halftime was in 2006, and the writing appeared to be on the wall again for them when Hernandez grabbed his second of the afternoon after 62 minutes.

At the end of the match, Sterling was given a stern talking to by his manager Pep Guardiola who did not seem too impressed by the winger's antics.

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.

Wilson was unable to make significant contact with Joshua King's cross, but City did not heed the let-off as the newly-capped England striker powered home a header from Simon Francis' ball into the box. "They say "ready" or "not ready" and we decide".

In Aguero's absence, Sterling produced the game-breaking contribution and moved level with his esteemed team-mate on eight Premier League goals this season. "We had a good spell before half-time where we scored a good goal". Watford were unable to threaten Leicester and their misery was compounded when Etienne Capoue was sent off in second half stoppage time. "Credit to the players for sticking to what we wanted them to do". We get enough playing with all the competitions we play in.
