After the match Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said,”As a team we did a really good performance. Bournemouth was incredibly well structured defensively, but not just defensively offensively as well.
“They attract you with the short passes and then switch the play. Quite similar movement to how Tottenham try to do it. Defensively they defend so deep and narrow, you have to go outside.
“We started really well, with three or four corners and we had chances. After we scored one or two they don’t want to attack and we had to be patient.
“It is not easy for many reasons. We made a really good performance again.”
