Comments:

League position: 1st Manchester City conceded their second goal in open play in this Premier League season (played eight); also by Newcastle United's DeAndre Yedlin on 1 September 2018. They are now unbeaten in their last 20 games in the Premier League (won 17, conceded nine goals). The Citizens are now also unbeaten in their last 36 games in the Premier League that had kicked off at 3pm on a Saturday (won 32). City had yet to concede in the final half-hour of a game so far in this Premier League season and were now the only team who had yet to drop any any points from a winning position. Raheem Sterling had now scored in all six of his games against AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League (scored eight goals). He became the first player in the competition's history to score in his first six appearances against a single opposition team. In his 543rd game in all competitions, Pep Guardiola had now won 400 games in his senior managerial career (Barcelona 179, Bayern München 124 and Manchester City 97).

Comments:
