Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling targeting upset ahead of Man City challenge

Dan Gosling says Bournemouth travel to Manchester City on Saturday bidding to end the Premier League leaders' 16-match winning run.

The Cherries are winless in seven games after Wednesday night's 2-1 Carabao Cup quarter-final loss at Chelsea.

But Eddie Howe's men pushed City close at home in August, when Raheem Sterling's goal in the seventh minute of stoppage time proved decisive in the visitors' 2-1 win.

Bournemouth lost 1-0 at Manchester United last week before a 4-0 reverse at home to Liverpool, but Gosling thinks the performance in the 2-1 defeat at Chelsea showed promise.

"We were not at it at all against Liverpool. We needed a reaction and I think we got that," Gosling told AFCB TV.

"Hopefully we can go to Man City and play like that as well. Hopefully we can cause them problems like we did at home.

"They're obviously running away with the league at the minute. It's a great challenge for us to try to stop them.

"We go to the game to win. We don't go to see how many we can't concede. We go to win and hopefully we can get something from the game."

Bournemouth were 1-0 down to Willian's 13th-minute goal, but their second half pressure told when Gosling curled in from the edge of the area in the 90th minute to equalise at Stamford Bridge.

However, they conceded from the kick-off as Alvaro Morata scored to send Chelsea through to the semi-finals and dump the Cherries out.

"The emotions in football can change so quickly," Gosling added.

"I don't think we were still celebrating. I didn't know how much stoppage time there was. I thought it was the last kick of the game.

"I think the board went up when we were celebrating, so no-one really knew.

"To concede 10 seconds from kick-off is a big kick in the teeth.

"We worked so hard to get back into the game. For 40, 45 minutes we were in their half.

"You work so hard to get your chance, we took it and we just switched off.

"I do think the goal was a little bit lucky. Morata went to flick it, he's missed it and caught everyone out. It's very hard to take.

"It's very disappointing after working so hard to get the equaliser to just give them the game. It's a huge negative for us."
