BOURNEMOUTH, August 25
Sergio Aguero struck twice as Manchester City moved into second place in the Premier League, two points behind leaders Liverpool, with a 3-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday.
Aguero, who has scored in all three games this season, gave City a 15th-minute lead.
Moments later Raheem Sterling doubled City’s lead.
But Bournemouth got back into the game in magnificent fashion, just before the interval, thanks to an unstoppable curling free-kick from substitute Harry Wilson, on loan from Liverpool. Aguero then poked home his second goal in the 63rd minute.
Liverpool beat Arsenal 3-1 on Saturday. Tottenham Hotspur fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle United. Brazilian Joelinton, Newcastle’s record £40 million signing, finished off a 27th minute counter-attack.
