Man City's 8 wins in row to open a first

I think it's important that we go there and play our best game and I think if we do that then we're going to give them problems. That's why he is a player at another level.

Kevin De Bruyne celebrates scoring City's first goal against Bournemouth. "But in the table beside, Kevin can sit there".

"We are lucky to have him and I hope he can enjoy playing his awesome football with us".

City's record signing had a hand in further goals for Kelechi Iheanacho, Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan - the Germany global bringing up his first goal for the club after an impressive debut in Wednesday's 4-0 Champions League win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

Iheanacho doubled the lead a few minutes later after an assist from Raheem Sterling and in the second half, Iheanacho returned the favor by setting up Sterling for the third goal.

Given a shooting opportunity from 25 yards, De Bruyne placed his free-kick low under the defensive wall and beyond an unsighted Artur Boruc into the bottom corner.

Captain Vincent Kompany can not expect an automatic place in the Manchester City side when he returns from injury, manager Pep Guardiola has warned. The Belgium midfielder split Bournemouth's defense with through-balls in the buildup to the goals of Iheanacho and Sterling, before saving his best pass until last.

Police say when officers arrived on the scene, the victim told them that a group of males had approached him and demanded money. He expressed condolences to King's family and said it was "absolutely critical that we get this (investigation) right".

His team-mates were good value for matching that scoreline, to move five points clear at the top of the table ahead of Everton facing Middlesbrough in Saturday's late game, although a red card for Nolito after the Spain forward clashed tempestuously with Adam Smith slightly blotted another highly satisfactory afternoon at the helm for Guardiola. The incident was sparked by Smith running into Nolito off the ball.

Vincent Kompany was also named among the substitutes for the first time this season following his return from injury, but even without their club captain, or the injured David Silva and suspended Sergio Aguero, City were able to win as they pleased.

But despite dominating the game Guardiola said he was more impressed with Bournemouth than local rivals Manchester United who city beat 2-1 last weekend.

This was also the first clean sheet in the league under Guardiola.

Speaking to BBC Sport's Match of the Day Three, Jenas said: "The way they've been playing in their games, Burnley aside, it told me that this is a serious team with a serious case for the title".

City's previous best start to a season was seven straight wins in 1897.
