EPL: Ilkay Gundogan speaks on Manchester City being ‘invincible’ in Premier League

Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan struck in the second half as Manchester City extended their Premier League lead to five points by beating Bournemouth 3-1.

His impressive form saw club-record goalscorer Sergio Aguero fall down the pecking order as manager Pep Guardiola cited the Brazil worldwide as the preferred number nine due to his tireless work ethic in his possession-based system.

Against City, Watford kept the champions at bay for 40 minutes before Leroy Sane opened the scoring and they could even have taken the lead when Troy Deeney's 32nd-minute strike was saved by Ederson. "Always I tell them, expect the best from the other sides, expect that Liverpool will drop minimum points, so we have to win games". I am delighted." While explaining his stand, Guardiola said "Football is not for one player the reason why he plays bad.

"In the second half, the action from Raheem changed the game", he said.

"When I came to London I thought Big Ben was in the city but no, he is in Watford for us", said Watford manager Javi Gracia. "Kevin [De Bruyne] is not ready but the other two I don't know".

Aguero is City's leading scorer this season, with 12 goals in all competitions.

Pep Guardiola believes that there is still room for improvement for Leroy Sane.

The England winger has also eight in six top-flight appearances against Bournemouth and Guardiola pointed to a mazy dribble and shot against the post shortly before Sterling's goal as the moment City roused from a mid-game slumber that saw Callum Wilson cancel out Silva's opener.

Nathan Redmond wriggled beyond four statuesque defenders on the edge of the penalty area before finding Michael Obafemi, who teed up Stuart Armstrong for a fierce drive that flashed past David de Gea.

They were still not completely safe and Wilson nearly bundled in from close range following a long throw, but Gundogan put the matter beyond doubt 11 minutes from time.

"That's the people who are aggressive on the ball, fight hard to recover the ball", he said.
