Manchester City 2-1 Bournemouth: David Silva and Gabriel Jesus goals burst Cherries’ revival and leave Eddie Howe’s men three points adrift of safety despite late fightback

  • David Silva curled Manchester City into a sixth minute lead with a free-kick that went in off the crossbar
  • Gabriel Jesus doubled Manchester City’s lead after Bournemouth twice came close to finding an equaliser
  • Joshua King had a strike disallowed for offside as relegation-threatened Cherries fought their way back
  • Jesus thought he had won a second-half penalty after a Steve Cook tackle before it was overturned by VAR
  • David Brooks reduced the deficit to give the Cherries hope with two minutes remaining of normal time
