BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) Erling Haaland scored a record 27th goal in the English Premier League to help Manchester City see off Bournemouth 4-1 and stay on the shoulder of Arsenal in the title race on Saturday.

No City player has scored that many in a single Premier League. Sergio Aguero's 26 in 2014-15 was the previous best for the club.

Julian Alvarez and Phil Foden added more for City, and an own goal by Chris Mepham wrapped up the visitors' scoring on an easy night on the south coast.

It is six matches without a clean sheet for Pep Guardiola's team, however, after Jefferson Lerma's 83rd-minute strike.

City remained two points behind Arsenal, which beat Leicester 1-0 earlier Saturday, but has played one game more.

Haaland has broken City's single-season scoring record in the league even though they have 13 more matches to play.
