Manchester City put an impressive 4-1 win over struggling Bournemouth as they keep pressure on league leaders Arsenal.

After failing to win their last two games, Manchester City needed an improved performance against Bournemouth. Julian Alvarez, who was recalled to the starting lineup, opened the scoring after Haaland hit the crossbar. Erling Haaland added the second goal for Manchester City and his 27th goal of the season in the Premier League, scoring from a tap-in.

Bournemouth tried to play from the back but Billing was caught out and his back pass caught up Phil Foden, who stood strong and scored past rushing Neto to give City the third goal before the break.

In the second half, Manchester City added a fourth goal after an Alvarez shot was deflected in by Bournemouth defender Chris Mepham. Bournemouth got a consolation goal through Lerma as Ruben Dias failed to clear the ball in his own box.

Manchester City are currently second with 55 points after 25 games played, while Bournemouth are in 19th place after 24 Premier League games.
