  • Jeremy Doku was the star of the show as Manchester City thrashed Bournemouth 6-1
  • The Belgian scored a goal and assisted four times in the rout
  • Thanks to his masterclass, the 22-year old achieved two unique Premier League feats

Jeremy Doku achieved 2 unique Premier League feats thanks to his masterclass against Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday, November 4.

City went into the game knowing nothing short of a win should suffice if they are to keep up pace with leaders Tottenham Hotspur.

As expected, they were in rampant form against the struggling Cherries, with winger Jeremy Doku particularly causing loads of problems.

The 21-year-old opened the scoring with a fluffed finish, before Bernardo Silva made it 2-0 from Doku’s cutback.

A third goal was added when Doku’s effort came off Manuel Akanji , with Bournemouth’s only goal coming from Luis Sinisterra to make it 3-1.

Doku had something to do with his side’s fourth goal as he set up Phil Foden, before sending Bernardo Silva off to score the fifth goal.

Nathan Ake completed the rout with a diving header late in the game from a Oscar Bobb's cross.

As cited on BBC, Doku was invlolved in five of Manchester City’s goals, including scoring once as he continued his impressive start to life in the Premier League.

This put him on a league of his own as, according to @OptaJoe on X, the Belgian became the youngest player in Premier League history to assist four goals.

He also became the youngest player to be involved in five goals in a single Premier League game.

His stats throughout the game are also quite impressive as he also completed four dribbles and emerged with five key passes. He also won six out of the seven duels against Bournemouth players.

There was also a unique milestone for Manchester City with the win as they extended their home-winning run to 22 games in 2023.

The fact that they have bow recorded 13 straight wins against Bournemouth is also a record.

Bruno Fernandes is Erik ten Hag's saviour

Sports Brief also reported on how Bruno Fernandes has saved Manchester United on more than one occasion in the Premier League this season.

The Portuguese superstar scored a late winner as Manchester United claimed a crucial 1-0 win over Fulham.

The game was devoid of real chances, as Scot McTominay thought he had given his side the lead in the eighth minute, but his strike was ruled out for offside.
