Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany describes victory against Bournemouth as "absolute madness"

"If we lost, I would say nothing about it, but after winning I can say that he was the last man, it was a clear chance and we would've had 11 men against 10".

It was an afternoon of late drama at the Vitality Stadium as Manchester City left it late to beat Bournemouth 2-1 on Saturday.

It wasn't convincing but Guardiola could at least be consoled by the knowledge that City had finally clicked into gear.

Aguero and Benjamin Mendy were seen arguing with stewards and police - and a Bournemouth spokesman confirmed to SunSport: "An allegation has been made by a steward that he was assaulted by Sergio Aguero and the Police have taken a statement".

While City has collected seven points out of a possible nine, Bournemouth slumped to a third consecutive loss.

Ex-West Ham striker Bobby Zamora wrote:?

Friday: La Liga: Real Sociedad 3 (Willian Jose 25, Prieto 34, Juanmi 45) bt Villarreal 0; Real Betis 2 (Sergio Leon 31, Feddal 77) bt Celta Vigo 1 (Gomez 9).

Bournemouth should also be applauded for playing well, and getting within seconds of taking their first ever Premier League point from City. Vincent Kompany headed out a Dan Gosling cross and it fell to Charlie Daniels, at a narrow angle, on the bounce, and he hit it into the net off the underside of the bar.

But the visitors had logically equalized by Gabriel Jesus, well-served by the depth by David Silva (1-1, 21e), and then dominate by a landslide.

"If you can not celebrate with the fans the best solution is not to invite the fans", City manager Pep Guardiola said. "If you can't celebrate with the fans maybe we should play without fans".

The FA does not allow appeals on sending offs via two bookable offences meaning Sterling will miss Manchester City's next Premier League against Liverpool. Martin also has worldwide experience on his CV, having played for the Spanish Under-19 side two years ago before making his Espanyol debut in 2015.

"This investigation is in the very early stages and if any further actions need to be taken, this will happen in due course".

At Old Trafford, Leicester was proving hard for United to break down. Daniels let the ball bounce on the pitch twice, before ripping it with his left foot from the left flank.
