Over to you, Liverpool. A fifth straight league victory for Manchester City, courtesy of Riyad Mahrez’s second-half goal, means that Pep Guardiola’s side can enjoy the view from the top of the table while cranking up the pressure on their rivals. Liverpool face Everton at Goodison Park and will need to win if they want to regain top spot in a title race where there is so little margin for error.
It may have been a scrappy goal that settled this contest but the gulf in class was huge. To put the game into perspective, Bournemouth failed to register an attempt on goal of any description and never even managed to win a corner. Eddie Howe’s team had only 18% of possession and City were so dominant that it actually felt strange to see Bournemouth stray into the opposition half on the odd occasion.
