Understrength Manchester City racks up sixth straight win in EPL

In the dying minutes of the first half, striker Callum Wilson drew Bournemouth level when he got on the other end of a cross by defender Simon Francis and headed the ball home. "The opponents had a good side, so strong in front, we could not press".

"It is another reality how the people attack our team, it's completely different here for the way they play". "They say "ready" or "not ready" and we decide". "In that situation, we need a specific quality - a run from Gabriel". That is why I am delighted to win in that way. "There are many reasons", Guardiola said.

"We spoke about it at half-time but my speech was ridiculous because it didn't work because the first five or 10 minutes was quite similar to the first half".

Among the goals in that streak was a victor seven minutes into injury time at Bournemouth in the third game of the last season.

Manchester City are eager to see him sign a new contract and his entourage have not ended the Premier League champions' hopes, but the player is claimed to have made up his mind about moving to Spain.

"We will prepare the game at Watford and watch the games".

He nearly scored a remarkable individual goal minutes before he did find the net, producing a mazy run past five opponents before seeing his shot deflect off Andrew Surman against the post. But as Manchester City fans we know form can sometimes go out of the window.

Manchester City's progress in recent seasons means they are no longer vulnerable to losing key players to the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid, according to Pep Guardiola. Topical tripe? You've come to the right place. "I thought the goals were scrappy from our perspective and avoidable".

However, the reigning champions could be without main man Sergio Aguero who missed Saturday's clash with Bournemouth through injury.

"The doctors told me Sergio can not play", Guardiola told a news conference.

He is clearly still young enough to emerge from his slump, but City are a club in a hurry and Guardiola might choose to bolster his attacking options in January because right now he simply can not afford to be without Aguero for a prolonged period.

City's all-time top scorer therefore seems unlikely to make the trip to Vicarage Road on Tuesday or Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

"I speak with the doctors every day, they make a report and a briefing", he added. Our success in the last 15 months is we don't care too much about the other ones.

"I'm always confident but always doubtful at the same time because we don't start well many times", Mourinho said.
