Raheem Sterling Scores Late, Gets Red Card, To Give City Maximum Three Points

Raheem Sterling scored a late 97th-minute goal-winner and was sent off for his celebration as Manchester City came from behind to win at Bournemouth.

Sterling found the net with a deflected effort from close range, and celebrated by running to celebrate with the City fans, earning a second yellow card from referee Mike Dean who felt he deserved the punishment.

The red card means Pep Guardiola’s team will be getting a red card for the second time after getting the last against Everton at Etihad stadium.

The Cherries had dominated the early exchanges and took a deserved lead on 13 minutes when Charlie Daniels drilled home a stunning half-volley off the crossbar from the edge of the area.

But City equalized eight minutes later with their first shot on target, David Silva picking out Gabriel Jesus with a perfectly weighted pass for the Brazilian to roll the ball home.

Both teams had opportunities after the break to increase their tally, with Bournemouth’s Joshua King and City’s Nicolas Otamendi hitting the bar.
