City leave it late to win at Bournemouth

A late Raheem Sterling goal earned Manchester City a dramatic win over Bournemouth at the Vitality stadium.

Sterling scored five minutes into added time and was sent off shortly after.

Bournemouth went into the match hoping for a better outcome from the last time both side met, with City winning that encounter 2-0.

The home side had a dream start when left back, Charlie Daniels gave them the lead, after meeting a loose ball before hitting a stunning left footed volley which left Ederson in goal for City for dead.

Eight minutes after going behind, City responded to going behind with a goal of their own, when Gabriel Jesus met a through ball from David Silva before sliding it past Asmir Begovic in goal to level the score at 1-1.

After the break, it became a feisty affair, as both teams matched each other, leading to several yellow cards dished out by referee, Mike Dean.

With the match looking likely to end in a draw, there was late drama as City snatched all three points.

In the seventh minute of added time, a cross from the right fell to Sterling in the Cherries box, and the England international took a touch before taking a shot that deflected off a Bournemouth player and sailed into the net, sending Pep and City fans into a frenzy.

It was heartbreak for Eddie Howe and the home fans, they had done enough to take at least a point, or so they thought.
