Silva shines as Man City beats Bournemouth.

Published

Manchester City celebrated their European reprieve with a 2-1 win that pushed Bournemouth closer to relegation as David Silva and Gabriel Jesus produced eye-catching goals on Wednesday.

Silva opened the scoring with a superb free-kick and set up Jesus’s solo effort at the Etihad Stadium to leave Bournemouth three points from safety despite David Brooks’ late goal. Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe said “nothing is impossible” after his side secured their first victory in 10 games against Leicester on Sunday. But a ninth successive away defeat means Bournemouth go into their final matches against Southampton and Everton likely needing two wins to have a chance of extending their five-year stay in the top flight. With West Ham and Watford — the teams directly above Bournemouth — meeting on Friday, the Cherries are not down yet, but they are in severe danger of slipping into the Championship. City’s mood is far more upbeat after the Court of Arbitration for Sport backed their appeal against UEFA’s two-season Champions League ban on Monday.

Already assured of second place in the Premier League, City’s priorities are Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal and their Champions League last 16, second-leg clash with Real Madrid next month. Having lost the Premier League title to Liverpool, City seem determined to add more trophies to the League Cup they won earlier this season. They have won their last three games, scoring 12 goals in the process. Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne were on the bench as Guardiola made six changes, but the imperious Silva endured they were not missed.

Silva will leave at the end of the season and Guardiola says the Spanish midfielder deserves a statue to recognise his remarkable 10 years with City.

One thousand fans will be allowed to watch the coming boxing big battle between English and Nigeria star Anthony Joshua and Bulgarian opponent Kubrat Pulev.

This will be the first time this year that the United Kingdom government will be allowing fans into the stadium since March due to the serious disturbance of deadly COVID-19. Coronavirus disturbed virtually all sporting activities in England and the rest of the world as the Premier League games was also stopped for three months. And since the return of football in England and other parts of the world, the English government are still locking all stadiums so as to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Anthony Joshua will be putting his heavyweight titles on the line against Kubrat Pulev in a duel that will come up on December 12.

According to the report on Daily Mail, PDC chairman Barry Hearn explained that he is waiting for more information from the UK government. ‘We are geared up for fans to come back. If they give me 1,000 I will be over the moon but we waiting on more information from the government and health authorities. ‘We have got the AJ fight coming up as well without a ticketing agency, but believe you me we are standing by and waiting to press a big red button on my desk.” Anthony Joshua’s last professional fight was against Andy Ruiz and the 31-year-old did well to beat the Mexican and collected his titles back
