Kevin de Bruyne starred on his return after two months out as Manchester City reinvigorated their top-four hopes with a sparkling win over Bournemouth.
Three of City’s goals came in the first 18 minutes, with Fernando opening the scoring from a Jesus Navas corner.
De Bruyne made it 2-0 when he volleyed home David Silva’s flick and Sergio Aguero headed a third soon after.
Bournemouth had no response and Aleksandar Kolarov blasted in City’s fourth with the last kick of the game.
City’s win means they are now 12 points behind Premier League leaders Leicester with seven games remaining but their recent form means it is more relevant they increased their lead on fifth-placed West Ham to three points, after the Hammers were held by Crystal Palace.
