as the striker held the ball up before slipping Gundogan in for a one-on-one.

Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden would score two more goals for the Sky Blues before halftime. The first of the two goals was a brilliant finish by the Belgian playmaker,

who gave City a 2-0 lead in the 31st minute by bending the ball around Mark Travers and into the bottom corner with the outside of his foot. Foden would add to the score just six minutes later.

With a fourth goal in the second half,

Jefferson Lerma’s own goal for the Cityzens would finish off an outstanding effort.

Despite the lopsided score, Scott Parker was still happy with the way his squad performed and thought that City’s superiority,

rather than his team’s particularly subpar effort, was more to blame for the outcome. “Today’s levels were different. We’ve faced up against a top-notch team that can perform at any time “According to the Cherries’ CEO, The Bournemouth Echo.

The Blues, who pinned the Cherries back from the first minute and never seemed like letting up with their continuous pressure,

won the game thanks to an incredibly one-sided first half.

Erling Haaland’s through ball was intercepted by lkay Gündoan,

who then scored the opening goal for the home team by slipping the ball past Mark Travers in the Bournemouth net.

A fantastic travela finish by Kevin de Bruyne into the corner of the net continued the barrage of strikes.

He joined in on the fun by carrying the ball from the halfway line.

Before leaving the game at halftime,

Phil Foden scored a goal after receiving a pass from Kevin de Bruyne and finishing it with a deflection.

However,

there was still time for another goal as Joao Cancelo worked his magic and forced Jefferson Lerma to put the ball in his own net. The second half was more about possession than precision finishing.

The victory extended Manchester City‘s flawless

start to the new English top flight and put them at the top of the Premier League for at least a day.

Regarding his most recent tactical change, Pep Guardiola has been transparent.

Pep Guardiola,

one of the greatest tactical innovators in the history of the game,

no longer need an introduction.

Bournemouth

The Spanish manager at Manchester City enjoys the distinction of winning not just one, but two Premier League championships,

primarily without the aid of a striker.
The 51-year-old tore up the rulebook by implementing a false nine system to great effect,

even though practically every league-winning team in the English top tier is associated with a clinical striker up front.

But this is just one of numerous occasions where the Catalan’s tactical brilliance has been crucial to City’s victory.

Guardiola once again displayed his exceptional football intelligence during the Sky Blues’ Premier League debut against West Ham United by using both Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo as inverted full-backs.

This has been the ex-Bayern Munich coach’s go-to strategy ever since he moved to England,

but he took things a step further by effectively using the two in a midfield double pivot.

The experiment undoubtedly worked last Sunday at the London Stadium.

The pair put out nearly flawless performances on and off the ball as part of Guardiola’s intricate 2-3-5 formation in the build-up.

In fact, the four-time Premier League champion described Walker’s effort

as one of his best while wearing a Sky Blues jersey.

With three or four corners and opportunities, we had a strong start.

We had to be patient since they don’t want to attack once we score one or two goals. For a variety of reasons, it is difficult. Again,

we gave a pretty strong performance.

Bournemouth

“Playing as a striker against a [defence] that has three CMs,

three CBs, and you in the middle is the most difficult job in the world. It’s just a matter of time before we locate numerous of these. With the quality we have, we’ll find him.”
