That's all for tonight!

A potentially pivotal three points and it's 17 games unbeaten across all competitions.

We're back in action on Tuesday night when we travel to Luton Town for the fifth round of the FA Cup.

See you then!


Ederson's City record

The goalkeeper kept his 110th clean sheet in the Premier League tonight, that's a City record!

The Brazilian has gone beyond Joe Hart and only seven goalkeepers have ever kept more clean sheets for a single club in the competition.

He's cementing his place as a true great!


Pep gives thanks 👏


Here, there, everywhere 👏

John Stones started the game as a centre-back. It didn't stay that way for long, popping up in midfield, on the wing and even at the top of the pitch. Amazing.


John Stones' reaction 🗣

I think we knew what we were in for today. Watching Bournemouth over the past few days we knew they’d fight until the end and they did that. I think how we dealt with it is credit to us, it’s not easy to play man to man football. So to find our space and another clean sheet is pleasing for us.

We know what’s coming before the game starts. Once the whistle blows you can train all week sometimes and they have a completely different set up. The manager does his research really well. Their system was a little different which allowed me to get in behind their lines. We always have a clear game plan and what the team is going to do. 


Johnny, Johnny Stones! 👊

This man was magnificent tonight, as always!


A simple finish for Phil


Foden on 🔥

As well as scoring the game’s only goal, no player created more chances (4), had more shots (4), or won possession more times (9) than Phil Foden in this match. 

Indeed, today was only the second time he created 4+ chances and attempted 4+ shots in a single Premier League away game in his career (also v Newcastle in January 2024).


Incredible away form

In all competitions, City have won more away games this season (14) than we did in the entirety of our Treble-winning campaign last season (13).


Bournemouth form continues 💪

City have never lost a league game against Bournemouth after 20 meetings. We've won 18 times and drawn twice.

This is the most a side has ever played another in English football without losing.
