"I'm concerned", admitted Pep Guardiola when asked about Manchester City's goalscoring shortcomings during the opening couple of games.

Manchester City's Benjamin Mendy could be involved for the first time since signing from Monaco.

56′ - The Red Bulls continually failed to capitalize on chances, and they paid for it. BWP put a header over the bar under pressure from substitute RJ Allen leading to penalty shouts, but with nothing given, NYCFC went down the other end and took the lead against the run of play.

Sterling had already been booked and was shown a second yellow card.

While Sterling's dismissal dominated the post-match analysis, all the talk before the game had centred on Guardiola's team selection.

Guardiola looked like being frustrated for the second time in a week following Monday's draw at home to Everton - a game in which Kyle Walker was also sent off in controversial fashion.

City, who played three at the back against Everton and Brighton, reverted to a back four, with full-backs Mendy and Danilo pushed high up the pitch.

City had fallen behind to a stupendous early goal by Charlie Daniels but equalised through Gabriel Jesus, before snatching their second win of the season at the death.

(A tie in that last area gets settled by the UEFA Club Coefficient.) Manchester City, as a practical lock to always finish above Girona, will be the undisputed big brother in their relationship, potentially knocking out the Spanish side from ever competing in Europe. It was a tough game. The Brazilian striker was on fire against Bournemouth, scoring the first goal and consistently beating defenders with silky skills, holding the ball up and linking up with the rest of City's star players.

Although City did excite at times last season, it was often suggested that they had a number of players past their best or simply not to the standard required by a team wanting to challenge for the title.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told BBC Sport: "We thought we had hung on for a point". I am disappointed for the players and the supporters.

And yet in the first 15 minutes, a long time before Sterling's victor, Bournemouth were all over them.

"We started really well, very positively". The Cherries had started the game well without testing Ederson in the City goal, but the young goalkeeper had no chance of keeping out Daniels' rasping drive.

"We knew it would be a different test".

"We've been given some harsh lessons by them previously, they've actually been good experiences the defeats against Manchester City".
