Narrow Victory Keeps Title Hopes Alive

Defensive solidity has been highlighted as a key factor for City’s success, with John Stones’ versatility and presence being particularly important.

City’s defense held firm against Bournemouth’s second-half pressure to maintain their unbeaten streak.

Offensive Prowess
