Pep: Bournemouth win was 'special'

1:33 | Soccer         English Premier League Manchester City to Benefit Most From League's Wild Spending Spree

Man City will have to work and earn the result against the Cherries but the hunger and quality will be in sync which will be too strong to resist.

The home side's early efforts were rewarded when Daniels produced a wonderfully clean strike to beat Ederson. They play long balls, balls into the channels and play set-pieces, but we got into the game.

Manchester City's Abu Dhabi ownership expanded its portfolio of global clubs on Wednesday by investing in Girona FC, which is playing in Spain's top league for the first time this season.

AFC Bournemouth will be without Simon Francis (hamstring), Junior Stanislas (groin) and Callum Wilson (knee). Both teams ripped shots in the opening 20 minutes, with plenty of scrambles in both boxes, but the finishing was less than stellar. Their best chances came through a lobbed Aguero shot that was cleared off the line and a David Silva strike which hit the post after a attractive pass from Aguero. The young striker was very highly rated by Guardiola and showed his worth, scoring once and assisting another against West Ham on his first Premier League start. When it's final, Girona will join MLS's NYCFC and Manchester City, as well as clubs in Australia, Japan, and Uruguay in CFG's portfolio. In the last four or five games, he scored a goal per game.

"Our aim for the second half was to kill the game", Howe told reporters.

With two large stewards pinning him to the ground in a position that looked unnecessarily painful, Aguero intervened to try and get them to ease up, a steward then pushes Aguero, who pushes back.

Manchester City's parent company has joined forces with manager Pep Guardiola's brother to complete a takeover of Girona, the Spanish top-flight newcomers have confirmed. City themselves have used a 3-5-2 so far this season in a win against Brighton and a draw against Everton. They've also been given almighty odds to defeat Bournemouth next week despite Walker's absence.

Benjamin Mendy, another big-money full-back recruit, will travel with the squad and could make his debut after shaking off a thigh problem, although Ilkay Gundogan will step up his recovery from cruciate knee ligament surgery by playing for City's second string on Friday. I don't think we started well in the first five, 10 minutes, then we played well.

But that moment was enough to wake City up, and they soon started to play football that Bournemouth could not live with.

Aguero's frustration at not being the main man last season was obvious and Jesus's injury perhaps spared Guardiola more grief from the City legend.
