Manchester City 2-1 Bournemouth: Silva and Jesus edged Cherries closer to the brink


Bournemouth’s survival hopes took another dent, with Manchester City narrowly beating them at the Etihad Stadium.

David Silva and Gabriel Jesus did the damage as Manchester City earned an unconvincing 2-1 home win over Bournemouth on Wednesday, nudging their visitors closer to the brink.

Eddie Howe’s Cherries went into the contest on the back of a shock 4-1 win over Champions League hopefuls Leicester City, but they had no such joy in Manchester, with Silva providing another reminder of his class as his Premier League career winds to its conclusion.
