The best pictures from City's crucial Premier League trip to Bournemouth...

Manchester City moved back on top of the Premier League after a crucial 1-0 win away at Bournemouth.

Substitute Riyad Mahrez, who came on for the injured Kevin De Bruyne, was the Blues’ hero, ending the Cherries’ dogged resistance early in the second half with a close-range strike.

It proved a tough test for Pep Guardiola’s men with central defender John Stones also forced off early in the second half.

However, the vital victory means we move two points clear of Liverpool, who play tomorrow away at Merseyside rivals Everton.
