Manchester City's Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero takes part in a team training session at City Football Academy in Manchester north west England

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe admits he's happy to see the back of Raheem Sterling after Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Manchester City.

Before Sterling's intervention, there was a growing sense in the Etihad that this could be the day City dropped points at home for the first time this season, fuelled by the threat Wilson and Joshua King were posing when Bournemouth broke forward.

They are just one point behind eighth-placed Leicester City, which defeated Watford 2-0 thanks to first-half goals from striker Jamie Vardy and midfielder James Maddison. I am delighted." While explaining his stand, Guardiola said "Football is not for one player the reason why he plays bad.

"Also, Fabian Delph [on for the injured Oleksandr Zinchenko at left-back] helped us to find our rhythm and the second half was much, much better". I have to listen to what the club thinks about it because if the results are not good maybe I'll not be here or I don't know what happens in the future in our world.

Before the match, Guardiola confirmed the Argentina striker was resting up due to a "muscular disturbance" and afterwards conceded there are no guarantees he will return in midweek. The champions went ahead after Asmir Begovic could only parry Leroy Sane's shot, and Bernardo Silva was on hand to sweep in the rebound.

But the leaders restored order in the 57th minute as Sterling continued his mastery of Eddie Howe's team.

The 21-year-old showed he is made of tough stuff having broken his nose in Saturday's 3-1 home win over Bournemouth.

While City remain the team to beat, their rivals United remain in turmoil after their winless league run extended to three games. Felipe Anderson added a third for West Ham in stoppage time, ensuring they move up to 13th in the table, while Rafa Benitez's side drop to 14th.

"Obviously I want to play more minutes, but I respect who is playing at the moment". Personally I would prefer us to run away with the League and open up a relaxing cushion of points. How many can they score tonight?

Mourinho sat stern-faced on the bench as Southampton celebrated and his expression was even more vexed eight minutes later as Marcus Rashford's needless foul on Mario Lemina led to Southampton's second.

But Gracia, making his first appearance at Vicarage Road since he signed a four-and-a-half year contract extension last week, said: "Nothing is impossible".

85- Goal! Doucouré bundles it in from close range!
