Jeremy Doku: "The most important thing is that we won."

Jeremy Doku's Persistence Rewarded in Spectacular Win Over Bournemouth

Jeremy Doku's persistence paid off in style as he played a pivotal role in Manchester City's stunning 6-1 victory over Bournemouth. The Belgian sensation's brilliant goal was a testament to his skill and composure, but what made it even sweeter was that he had failed with a similar effort during training on the eve of the game.

Doku's deceptive move left everyone, including Bournemouth's defence, expecting a shot. However, he cleverly chose to link up with Rodri, who was unmarked, for a sublime one-two. The pass was exquisite, and Doku executed his part with precision. The result? A goal that left everyone in awe.

Doku explained as reported: "Yesterday we tried it, but it didn't work. It was the perfect pass – I just tried to hit the ball right into the corner, and it worked. It was a nice goal."

But Doku's contribution didn't stop at the goal. He provided four assists during the game, an impressive feat that made him the youngest player in Premier League history, at just 21 years and 161 days old, to have five goal involvements in a single match.

In one instance, a powerful shot by Doku looked like it could have been his second goal, only for another angle to reveal that it had deflected off Manuel Akanji's back on its way to the net. Doku's reaction was as unselfish as it was sportsmanlike.

"I thought it was my goal, but he touched it," he admitted. "In the end, though I don't care – it's a goal, it doesn't matter who it is. I'm happy for him. The most important thing is that we won."

Doku's unselfishness and dedication to the team's success have quickly made him a fan favourite at Manchester City, and his performances continue to be a source of delight for football enthusiasts worldwide.

City are now gearing up for an exciting trio of matches on the horizon. The action begins with Young Boys visiting the Etihad on Tuesday for a Champions League showdown. Following that, the team faces Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, and they return home to host Liverpool the next Saturday, with both the Chelsea and Liverpool games scheduled for the Premier League.
