Pepped-up City win to cut gap at the top

By Graham Luney

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola poured praise on his side after they jumped three places in the Premier League table following a 2-0 win at Bournemouth.

City are now eight points behind leaders Chelsea after Raheem Sterling's opener and an own goal from Tyrone Mings.

Guardiola said: "We made a real performance. I am so pleased with how we did and especially the last 10-15 minutes, we did the right way to make the result with a thousand million passes.

"It is important to score goals, we are in deficit but it is OK. The gap is still so massive. We just focus on the next game."

City will check on Gabriel Jesus' fitness today after he turned his ankle in the opening minutes.
