But in first half stoppage time Harry Wilson scored a stunning free kick to drag Bournemouth back into the game.

But Aguero scored his second of the game, stabbing home from just a couple of yards out with 64 minutes on the clock to secure Manchester City the win.

The game began with a frantic pace despite a temperature of over 30 degrees Celsius on the south coast, and it was the visitors who had the first chance of the game.

Bournemouth failed to take their best chance of the game and the Eddie Howe’s side were immediately punished at the other end.

Bernardo Silva linked up with David Silva, and the later found the forward run of Raheem Sterling who poked the ball past the onrushing Ramsdale to double City’s advantage.
