Sterling’s crowd trouble
Raheem Sterling became the first Premier League player to be sent off for excessive celebration since Frederic Piquionne, for West Ham against Everton in Jan 2011. It was Sterling’s first Premier League red card, and means he misses City’s forthcoming clash with his former club, Liverpool. Sergio Aguero failed to score in an away League match for the first time since February, also against Bournemouth. Gabriel Jesus has been directly involved in 12 goals in his 11 League starts for City. City have gone 11 League games without defeat for the first time since Sept 2015.
