City see off Cherries to go second and close gap

Manchester City eased to a 2-0 win at Bournemouth to move into second place in the Premier League.

City took advantage of Tottenham’s loss at Liverpool on Saturday by taking maximum points and moving themselves behind leaders Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola’s side had to brush off the early loss of Brazilian teenager star Gabriel Jesus to injury – although they were hardly down grading down with Sergio Aguero coming off the bench.

Soon after Raheem Sterling opened the scoring before Tyrone Mings put through his own net, under pressure from Aguero, 20-minutes from the end to secure all three points.

City are now just eight points off leaders Chelsea and the fact they have closed the gap on the leaders has seen their title odds cut.

Pre-match bet365 were offering 11/1 on City making a title tilt, but that was soon cut to 8/1 on full-time.

City’s odds to finish in the top-four have also come in, and they have taken over from Tottenham as second favourites for that and are listed as 1/4.

Guardiola himself down-played their chances of catching Chelsea, despite closing the gap.
