Kevin De Bruyne scored a beautiful goal the last time Manchester City visited Bournemouth

We just needed an excuse to show this one, because it's beautiful

Manchester City return to Premier League action on Monday, when the Sky Blues travel to the south coast of England to face AFC Bournemouth. It promises to be a tough game against the Cherries according to Pep Guardiola, though it was anything but a tough game the last time City visited Bournemouth.

It was the first ever meeting between the two sides at the Vitality Stadium in the top flight, since it was Bournemouth's first season in the Premier League. City won 4-0 with a dominant performance, one of the best we saw in Manuel Pellegrini's last season in charge as City manager.

Kevin De Bruyne made his return after a two-month injury absence, and he was the undisputed Man of the Match. The Belgian needed just 60 minutes to make his mark, including this gorgeous finish to a beautiful team play involving David Silva and Sergio Agüero:

Maybe we can get another one like this on Monday? It'd be nice.
