Bournemouth produced the pluckiest of performances to withstand a Manchester City onslaught… for 96 minutes.
That was until Raheem Sterling scored one of the flukiest goals you’ll ever see deep into injury time to clinch a 2-1 victory at the Vitality Stadium.
The Cherries were up against it as soon as Charlie Daniels opened the scoring with a sublime half volley after 13 minutes.
But City weren’t behind for much longer, equalising when David Silva picked out Gabriel Jesus to score clinically just eight minutes later.
Nathan Ake was lucky to avoid a red card when he pulled down Jesus not long after.
Despite the constant City pressure Bournemouth stood form and Josh King rattled the woodwork, although Nicolas Otamendi also hit the post.
But Sterling was on hand to score in the dying seconds when his shoot took a huge deflection and looped over goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
Amazingly, Sterling was then SENT OFF almost instantly by referee Mike Dean after he went into the crowd to celebrate his late winner.
It was the England winger’s second yellow card which made the culmination to the game one of the strangest we’ve seen in a long time.
Talk about bitter sweet.
