A 24-carat performance at Manchester City. We are used to it from Kevin De Bruyne (an attentive spectator on the sidelines), but we are gradually also getting used to it from Jeremy Doku.
On paper it was a battle of David against Goliath, because Bournemouth is also doomed to relegation football this season. Still, it took half an hour for the Doku film festival to open.
First he set up the one-two through the center himself, which he then also finished beautifully.
But even better was the assist for Bernardo Silva’s 2-0. For once, Doku had drifted to the right side, where he dribbled madly at Bournemouth’s defenders.
The Doku-Silva tandem also struck for the 5-1. The Red Devil proved that he also has that string to his bow with an action in his own half combined with a KDB-like deep ball.
In between, Doku had also seen how his – somewhat unsuccessful – shot was deflected into the goal by Akanji and Foden was also offered a goal.
For those who have lost count: that makes 1 goal and 4 assists. Who else deserved the Man of the Match trophy?
