Pep Guardiola continued to maintain his one hundred percent start in the Premier League as Manchester City demolished Bournemouth. The Cherries never took charge of the game and ended up losing 4-0.
Kevin De Bruyne continued to impress for City as he scored his second goal in as many games. Ilkay Gundogan, Raheem Sterling and Kelechi Iheanacho also found the back of the net for the hosts.
Here’s how the game played out on social media:

There were individual errors again today, but how to you play against a Pep Guardiola side like that? annihilated everyone they’ve played.

Raheem Sterling too was praised for another stellar performance:

Guardiola has turned Sterling into Messi….well almost.

What is Guardiola feeding Raheem Sterling? Dazzling run, won ball back on flank, surged through five players, shot saved. Still 3-0

Ridiculous run from Sterling. Won the ball on the touchline and beats five players before hitting the post.
