Aguero helps City go second

Sergio Aguero came off the bench to help Manchester City beat Bournemouth 2-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Monday night and go second in the Premier League.  Raheem Sterling broke the deadlock on 29 minutes with his fifth league goal against the Cherries, before Tyrone Mings deflected an Aguero shot past Artur Boruc to seal the win for the visitors 21 minutes from time.

However, it was not all good news for Pep Guardiola's side, who saw Gabriel Jesus limp off with a foot problem in the first half, while Bournemouth also lost Jack Wilshere with an ankle problem.   As a result, City move up to second in the table, eight points behind leaders Chelsea. Bournemouth remain 14th after a fifth home game without a win, six points clear of the relegation zone.
