Guardiola's men controlled the game at the Vitality Stadium and restricted Bournemouth to just 18% possession that resulted in no attempts on goal for the home side.

It was the second 1-0 win in four days for Man City, who were without key players through injury and who had played 120 minutes last Sunday in the Carabao Cup final.

Two players who have impressed in all three matches in the last week were singled out for praise from Guardiola – David Silva and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

the Manchester City Manager said: “David was incredible. In the first half of the season we qualified for the Champions League and he was one of the main reasons.

“After that, he had an injury and took time to get his pace back. For three or four games in a row he has been incredible.

“Zinchenko is definitely important to us. He is playing top. With the ball, without his attention is excellent.

“Players play because they deserve it. Oleks was committed, smart, intelligent and he understands everything – he has incredible quality.
