West Ham's upward trajectory also continued as three goals in 12 second-half minutes beat Cardiff 3-1 with Lucas Perez scoring his first two league goals since a summer move from Arsenal. Bournemouth created serious problems at the back for City, and Callum Wilson equalised on the verge of halftime with a powerful header from 10 yards.
"We had a lack of rhythm in the first half".
Manchester City extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points with a 3-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday. Raheem Sterling & Ilkay Gundogan make the bench, Riyad Mahrez and David Silva start in their place.
And when Mahrez doubled City's lead early in the second half, another convincing victory looked to be on the cards, especially with Guardiola's players having averaged over three goals per game in the Premier League during 2018.
Bournemouth suffered its sixth loss of the season and provisionally holds the ninth spot with 20 points.
Among the goals in that streak was a victor seven minutes into injury time at Bournemouth in the third game of the last season. They played long balls, attacked the channels. "Leroy, I don't know what he ate - maybe it will be on the menu for the next games for everybody - and changed the direction [of the game]". In the late match Southampton are home to Manchester United.
Both of City's draws have come away from home - against Wolves and Liverpool - and the Catalan boss is demanding his side show no complacency against sides lower down the table ahead of the trip to Watford.
"From watching City play, I would say they have gone on again this year and credit to the manager and the players for that".
Jesus, 21, joined City in January 2017 for a reported £27 million fee from Brazilian outfit Palmeiras and hit the ground running in the Premier League with seven goals in his first 10 games.
Crystal Palace won a league game for the first time since September 15 after a 2-0 home victory against Burnley.
Silva said of his club colleague: "I hope he can get more than he got last season".
City pulled ahead in the 14th minute through Bernardo Silva's strike, but Bournemouth looked increasingly risky.
"There are many games to play and it's the same with Raheem, I have a feeling he can do better".
"He is so aggressive with the ball and so focused on the goal".
