Again, Man City grab late win, Bournemouth hold Southampton

Again, Man City grab late win, Bournemouth hold Southampton

Silva was the hero for City as he scored the winning goal on 83 minutes in their 2-1 comeback win against West Ham United in the Premier League at the Etihad on Sunday.

The Spain worldwide scored the victor in City's 2-1 success over West Ham United on Sunday afternoon, and after the match, Carragher paid tribute to the attacker.

Matthew Upson has told Match of the Day 2, which was broadcast on BBC One on December 3rd, that he felt Declan Rice put in a brilliant performance for West Ham United against Manchester City yesterday. "It showed what we are".

He declared: "For players like me and Vinnie (Kompany), the older players, and we see the younger players like Sane and Sterling coming in. we play with more confidence". It was massive. They played 10 players inside the box, it was nearly impossible. I have to say we did a really good job.

Guardiola has favoured a lone striker this season, with either Sergio Aguero or Gabriel Jesus deployed at the head of their fluid, interchangeable attacking system.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated David Silva could miss Sunday's Manchester derby away to city rivals Manchester United due to injury.


"You have to try to solve it (when teams pack the defence)". Our pace and pass were quicker and better.

Bournemouth were aggrieved not to have won a penalty and defender Adam Smith, who thought he was fouled, said the referee had admitted later that it should have been a spot-kick.

Silva is tied for the most assists in the Premier League with teammate Kevin De Bruyne.

"Arguably we had the best chances in the first half".

David Moyes's team threatened to end City's unbeaten record - which stands at 28 matches - when they took the lead through Angelo Ogbonna, but Nicolás Otamendi equalised before Silva secured a 13th straight win.

"We spoke a lot about defending set pieces but they are taller", Guardiola added.
