Man City v AFC Bournemouth - as it happened
FT: Man City 2-1 Bournemouth! City win, but Bournemouth deserved a draw. Brooks pulled one back after D Silva and Jesus' goals and the Cherries could have easily levelled at the end. They stay in the relegation zone and have just two games left. Thanks for your company and join me for Arsenal v Liverpool which kicks off at 21:15 CET!
Long throw into the box, it's booted away and that's it!
Wilson heads over the bar now!
E Garcia is booked for breaking down a counter.
A long ball forward causes problems and Surridge nearly gets there before Ederson!!
Six added minutes and the Cherries continue to attack!! L Cook and Lerma have shots blocked from inside the City area! City hanging on.
Bournemouth sub: Surridge on for Billing.
A ball is sent into the box, Garcia doesn't clear and C Wilson shoots wide of the goal! Almost 2-2!
Brooks pulls one back for the Cherries!! Rico sends a lovely pass forward to C Wilson who squares for Brooks who taps in. Game on!
Great play by Man City and Foden's shot is saved.
Chance for Bournemouth now after a pass by Brooks is shot off target by Wilson.
H Wilson dives in the City box when Mahrez was nearby and the ref says no! That was a dive and Lee Mason was fuming: "Look, he's saying it's not so stop whinging. Thank you". Brilliant scenes.
Bournemouth sub: H Wilson on for King.
Man C double sub: Mahrez and Zinchenko on for Jesus and Mendy.
Jesus hits wide of the goal for Man City.
King goes down now in the City area, but nothing given.
VAR says no penalty and that's the right decision!
I think the defender actually wins the ball and Jesus steps on the Bournemouth man.
Penalty for Man City!! D Silva and Jesus combine and S Cook slides in and a penalty is given. It is actually Jesus who fouls S Cook so it shouldn't be a penalty.
Bournemouth triple sub: Solanke, Stanislas and Gosling off, Wilson, Brooks and C Wilson on.
City sub: Gundogan off, Rodrigo on and that's drinks.
Corner for Bournemouth.
Chance for the Cherries!!! Stanislas runs down the near side, his cross in is only batted down by Ederson and Gosling's strike is deflected behind.
Chance for Rico and hits over the goal!
It was just offside but it was lovely play.
King scores!!! Stanislas' shot from inside the area is tapped in by King at the back stick and the flag is up! It will be checked and it looks just off,
City are comfortable here in the second half. Foden looks to find a teammate at the back post with his cross which finds no one.
Corner for City which was conceded by Kelly.
Sterling seems to be holding his leg. Let's hope that's nothing serious.
Mendy crosses into the box and Bournemouth clear. City fairly comfortable.
The Cherries win a corner which City deal with.
Free-kick to the home side in midfield.
Second half started!
Man C double sub: Eric Garcia and Sterling on for Walker and B Silva.
HT: Man City 2-0 Bournemouth! Half-time at the Etihad, but it's been far from easy for the hosts. D Silva scored a brilliant free-kick after six minutes and Jesus made it two in the 39th minute, but the Cherries had three or four clear chances to score. The best of those was a Stanislas free-kick which was turned onto the post by Ederson and Eddie Howe's men don't deserve to be two down at the break. Back for more in a bit!
Two added minutes.
Scrap in the Bournemouth box sees Jesus go down after the Cherries don't clear, but nothing is given. Lerma looks to clearly foul Jesus, but the VAR does not intervene.
There's no way Bournemouth deserve to be 2-0 down here. They have had four or five clear chances at 1-0, but the big clubs get one opportunity and take it.
Jesus makes it 2-0 against the run of play! Great team play ends with D Silva passing to Jesus who cuts inside and then shoots across Ramsdale into the far corner!
What an opportunity for the Cherries!!! King finds Gosling in the box, he then passes to Solanke who turns and his effort is deflected off Otamendi for a corner. From the corner, Bournemouth head over!
Foden's cross is hit wide by B Silva!
Gosling sends another dangerous cross in which Solanke knocks wide.
What a tremendous save!!!! Stanislas' free-kick is saved onto the post by Ederson and the ball then goes back towards goal, but hits the goalie on the head and it goes out for a corner.
Brilliant play by Solanke who is brought down by Otamendi 20-25 yards from goal.
The Cherries threaten now through Stacey and his cross is nearly turned in by Solanke!
Mendy passes to Foden in the box and he hits over!
City are passing looking for the spaces and playing patiently.
Corner for the home side.
King!!!! He gets the ball inside the box and turns before shooting wide of the goal!
Man City better, but Bournemouth are doing well to keep this at 1-0.
Bournemouth attack through Stanislas, he passes to Solanke in the box whose shot is blocked.
79% possession for the hosts.
Kelly is booked for a cynical shirt pull to break down a counter which begun with a long throw by Ederson.
The delivery is sent long looking for Solanke and Ederson comes out to catch.
Free-kick to Bournemouth at midfield after a foul by Gundogan.
City attack and Fernandinho is controversially penalised for a foul on Gosling near the Bournemouth area.
Man C have been very comfortable here so far.
Fernandinho hits it from distance and it goes narrowly wide of the goalie's right hand post!
D Silva makes it 1-0 for Man City! That's a brilliant free-kick in off the bar! Over the wall, off the bar and into the goal. Not looking good for Bournemouth already.
Lerma brings down D Silva just outside the box and it's a free-kick.
Rico's ball in is tamely headed by Gosling and it's easy for Ederson. Then City go up the other end, the ball goes to Jesus, he holds the ball up and then nearly finds D Silva with his pass.
City have all the early possession, Walker sends a cross in from the near side which beats everyone and goes for a goal kick.
City get us going from left to right! Both in their usual kits!
Lee Mason is the referee while Simon Hooper is the VAR.
Man City won 1-3 when they beat at Bournemouth back in August.
16 degrees and cloudy in Manchester this evening.
Bournemouth came from behind to beat Leicester 4-1 last time out. S Cook, Billing, Stanislas and King in, Ake, Brooks, Danjuma and Wilson out.
Stones, Otamendi, Fernandinho, D Silva, Gundogan and Foden in, Laporte, Garcia, Rodrigo, KDB, Sterling and Mahrez out from City's 0-5 win at Brighton.
2nd v 18th. 72pts v 31pts. Bournemouth are three points off safety with three matches left so this is very important for them. Man C are guaranteed a top four place and their successive appeal to CAS last Monday means they are guaranteed Champions League football next season. They have little to play for here this evening, but they've fielded a strong side.
Bournemouth XI: Ramsdale (GK); Rico, Kelly, S Cook, Stacey; King, Lerma, Billing, Gosling, Stanislas; Solanke.
Man City XI: Ederson (GK); Mendy, Stones, Otamendi, Walker; D Silva, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Foden, Jesus and B Silva.
