Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany describes victory against Bournemouth as "absolute madness"

But Raheem Sterling bagged a 97th-minute victor to send the away fans into a frenzy and maintain City's unbeaten start to the season. The Citizen's first half worsened as a dubious second yellow card within two minutes of the first saw Kyle Walker sent for an early bath.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has refused to comment on his transfer targets and has said that the future of all the players being linked will depend on their respective clubs. "Hopefully they can call me and explain the reason why".

For Bournemouth's part, though they impressed for periods of the match, their third successive league defeat means they are yet to win a point this season.

And after City grabbed the victor amid a frenetic finale, Kompany told Sky Sports: "It is absolute madness".

Bournemouth took a 13th-minute lead through a remarkable strike from left-back Charlie Daniels, who slammed a half-volley in off Ederson's crossbar from a position wide on the left.

What did you think of the game?

"We've just got to be a bit more clinical". Reports suggest he remained back on the City bus when it arrived at Bournemouth and he failed to make an appearance during the warm-up.

On the injury front, Guardiola confirmed that former Monaco left-back, Benjamin Mendy, will travel with the Manchester City squad to Bournemouth for Saturday's game, with the French global expected to return from a lengthy thigh injury. But we had our chances to win it too, so it's hugely frustrating.

"Really pleased with the players today", he said.

The anticipated move forges closer links between Girona and Manchester City, who have loaned the club five fringe players, including £10m summer signing Douglas Luiz. Firstly, the goalscorer was sent off in the 99th minute by referee Mike Dean in a decision that was perhaps harsh seeing as fans invaded the playing area, rather than Sterling actually entering the stands.

But in that period we missed a lot of balls.

Sterling raced towards City's travelling fans to celebrate and was engulfed as several of them spilled over barriers and on to the pitch, forcing police and stewards to intervene.

"We have been given some harsh lessons by (City) previously, they were good experiences for us to go through".
