Manchester City produced another staller performance in the premier league this weekend when they blitz past newcomers AFC Bournemouth scoring 5 goals including four in first half. Raheem Sterling scored 3 while Bony grabbed a brace to keep City 2 points clear at the top of the table.
Manchester City were without Sergio Aguero and David Silva when they took on AFC Bournemouth in the premier league game this saturday afternoon. But City were well equipped with the likes of Bony and Sterling who ran riot in first half against Bournemouth to pretty much kill the game off with 4 first half goals.

Raheem Sterling was in form of his life against new comers Bournemouth and scored City’s first in just 7th minute from a close range. It was against the run of play as Bournemouth looked better of the two sides in opening exchanges.
It went from bad to worse for away side when Adam Federici (Bournemouth keeper) spills a simple cross straight into the feet of Wilfrien Bony who made no mistake in putting the ball in the back of the net.
Bournemouth seemed to get back in to the game when Glenn Murray’s shot was deflected in at 22 minute to make things interesting but Sterling was at it again minutes later when he dribbled past Distin and cook to slot him his second and City’s third.
Sterling was not finished as he completed his hattrick (becoming the first english player to score hattrick for City since 1992).A terrible mix between Distin and Federici allowed Sterling to score his third of the day.
