Jeremy Doku was the star of the show as Manchester City put on a dazzling display to secure a resounding 6-1 victory over Bournemouth, propelling them to the top of the table. The Belgian winger was in scintillating form, not only finding the back of the net himself but also playing a crucial role in four other goals.
Doku’s moment of brilliance came on the half-hour mark when he combined with Rodri in a delightful one-two before unleashing a powerful strike to open the scoring. He didn’t stop there, as he went on to set up Bernardo Silva for the first of his two goals. Doku showcased his exceptional vision and precision, drawing in a defender before delivering a perfectly weighted pass for Silva to calmly slot home.
Just before half-time, Doku’s effort took a deflection off Manuel Akanji, leaving the Bournemouth net bulging for the third time. The young winger continued to wreak havoc in the second half, this time finding Phil Foden in the box, who made no mistake in driving the ball into the back of the net.
Despite Bournemouth’s efforts to mount a comeback, they were caught off guard by a swift counter-attack orchestrated by Doku. The Belgian maestro sent a long ball forward, finding Silva, who displayed his finesse by delicately chipping the ball over Andrei Radu to secure his brace.
The icing on the cake came from former Bournemouth player Nathan Ake, who showed his aerial prowess by diving to head home Oscar Bobb’s cross, sealing a comprehensive victory for Manchester City.
With this impressive performance, Doku has undoubtedly cemented his status as one of the most exciting talents in English football. Manchester City’s dominance in this match sends a clear message to their rivals that they are serious contenders for the title this season.
