Raheem Sterling has been in stunning form this season and he bagged once again against Bournemouth to move level with Manchester City team-mate Sergio Aguero and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the top of the Premier League scoring charts.
The winger has gone from strength to strength under Pep Guardiola and his eight goals and six assists this term has seen him contribute to more goals than any other player in England’s top flight.
His strike against Bournemouth put his side 2-1 up at the Etihad but it also made a little bit of Premier League history.
Sterling became the first man in the competition’s history to score in each of his first six appearances against a single opponent,
Bournemouth fans will be glad to see the back of him – he now has eight goals in six league appearances against Eddie Howe’s side.
In his only meeting outside of the Premier League in recent times, Sterling scoreed twice in a 3-1 League Cup win over Bournemouth for former club Liverpool.
Bernado Silva had earlier given City the lead before Callum Wilson struck back on the stroke of half time with a powerful header.
But Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan both scored in the second half as Guardiola’s men extended their lead at the top of the league to five points.
Liverpool will have the chance to close the gap back to two points when they face local rivals Everton on Sunday.
