MANCHESTER, England -- Pep Guardiola is already making history at Manchester City.By beating Bournemouth 4-0 in the English Premier League on Saturday, City opened a season with eight straight wins for the first time in the clubs 136-year existence. Five of those have come in the league and the other three in the Champions League.City is averaging more than three goals a game under Guardiola, who has turned the team into an irresistible attacking unit.And surely title favorites.It was a stroll against Bournemouth at Etihad Stadium, with Kevin De Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho scoring in the first half before Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan added goals in the second. There were audible gasps from City fans relishing the silky passing and buildup play of whats shaping to be the most entertaining team in the clubs history.Theres also intelligence behind the excellence. Iheanacho said City noticed in its research for the game that Bournemouths players jump in the wall at free kicks on the edge of the area. So when De Bruyne got his first chance, he rolled his effort underneath the line of jumping visiting players and into the net.That got City rolling in the 15th minute -- and De Bruyne played a part in the other three goals, too. The Belgium midfielder split Bournemouths defense with through-balls in the buildup to the goals of Iheanacho and Sterling, before saving his best pass until last.The timing and weight of his angled pass to the onrushing Gundogan was perfect, and the Germany midfielder marked his Premier League debut by slotting his finish into the corner.Guardiola said De Bruyne was one of the best players he has managed, adding: (Lionel) Messi is on a table on his own. Kevin is there with the rest.City was one of three teams to score four goals as Arsenal and West Bromwich Albion also enjoyed big wins on a high-scoring day of 22 goals in five games in the league.Heres a look at the other games:---HULL 1, ARSENAL 4Its been a good week for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.The Chile international scored a goal in each half to inspire Arsenals third straight league win, four days after grabbing a late equalizer in a 1-1 draw against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.Having a penalty saved blotted Sanchezs performance against Hull -- and manager Arsene Wenger was left wondering why Sanchez took the kick ahead of the usual penalty-taker Santi Cazorla. Arsenal has had four penalties this season, scoring two and missing two.Theo Walcott and Granit Xhaka scored Arsenals other goals, with Robert Snodgrass replying for Hull with a penalty that made it 2-1 in the 79th. Hull played more than half the game with 10 men after Jake Livermore was sent off for two bookings, the second for a handball in the area that earned Arsenal a penalty.LEICESTER 3, BURNLEY 0It was some Premier League debut for Islam Slimani.The Algeria striker scored twice as Leicester eased past Burnley with a second straight 3-0 win, having beaten Club Brugge by that score in the Champions League on Wednesday.Slimani is Leicesters record signing after joining from Sporting Lisbon in August for $33.5 million, and looks to have established himself as the first-choice partner for Jamie Vardy.Ben Mees own goal rounded off a second league win of the season for the champions.EVERTON 3, MIDDLESBROUGH 1Everton is the other unbeaten team along with City, and earned a fourth straight win after coming from behind at Goodison Park, lifting the team in second place.Gareth Barry scored on his 600th top-flight appearance to spark Evertons comeback after goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburgs own goal put Middlesbrough ahead. Seamus Coleman and Romelu Lukaku also scored for Everton.WEST BROMWICH ALBION 4, WEST HAM 2West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said he felt embarrassed during this third straight loss -- and second straight 4-2 defeat -- for his team.West Brom was 3-0 ahead at halftime after goals by Nacer Chadli, Salomon Rondon and James McClean. Chadli added another before Michail Antonio, with his fifth of the season, and Manuel Lanzini pulled goals back for West Ham.West Ham has lost four of its five games.

Arsenal failed to take full advantage of its main rivals stumbles on Saturday as substitute Gerard Deulofeu levelled with a hard shot from a tight angle in the 84th minute to give Everton a deserved point.

The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday.DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings and city officials on Wednesday announced a $650 million plan for a new arena development for the NHL team in Detroits downtown entertainment and sports district. Plans for an 18,000-seat arena were announced by the teams owners and local economic development officials. Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch has long said he wanted a replacement for the 32-year-old Joe Louis Arena. The new proposal -- essentially a framework of financing and development plans -- still needs to be approved by the City Council and a handful of state and local agencies, but its seen as an important first step. The Red Wings said there will be $367 million in private investment and $283 million in public funds in the complex, which would also include residential, retail and office space. Developers said the public money would come from existing economic development funds and requires no new taxes or funds from the cash-strapped city. Detroit, the largest city in the country under state financial oversight, is struggling with a long-term debt that emergency financial manager Kevyn Orr believes is more than $17 billion. "Today, this public-private partnership took a significant step forward in laying the groundwork for a major catalyst development, which will create approximately 8,300 jobs, stimulate economic activity and have a positive and lasting impact on our community," said Christopher Ilitch, son of Mike Ilitch and president and chief executive of Ilitch Holdings Inc., another family company. The citys Downtown Development Authority approved a "memorandum of understanding" with Olympia Development of Michigan, which is owned by Ilitch and his wife, and Wayne County, home to Detroit. Ilitch also owns the Detroit Tigers, and his family owns Little Caesars Pizza and downtown Detroits Fox Theatre. Under the plan, the authority would own the arena and event centre complex, while Olympia Development would have exclusiive rights to use, manage and operate it, and hold naming rights.dddddddddddd The arena is slated to be built near the Detroit Tigers Comerica Park and the Detroit Lions Ford Field, close to the intersection of Interstate 75 and Woodward Avenue. The proposed location is a couple miles away from the Red Wings current arena. Red Wings officials said it was too soon to estimate when construction would start or end. Michigan lawmakers in December approved legislation allowing property tax dollars collected by the Downtown Development Authority to be used for the development. The authority has been allowed for nearly two decades to finance economic stimulus projects by selling revenue bonds to be paid off with the tax money. It takes in about $12.8 million a year that otherwise would have gone into a fund for public schools statewide. Developers and supporters of that legislation said it will create thousands of new construction jobs and pump $1 billion into Michigans economy. Opponents counter that funding a private stadium with taxpayer dollars shouldnt be a priority, especially when that money was otherwise going to the School Aid Fund. "Were talking about jobs ... talking about enhancing the entertainment district. Its a win-win for everybody. The Ilitch family has been a very big supporter of Detroit and we agree that Joe Louis Arena is dated," Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano said, adding that county road funds may be used for some infrastructure work associated with the new stadium. Mayor Dave Bing said in a statement that the project will "continue to add momentum to the transformation of the city." Detroit is experiencing economic activity in its downtown and Midtown neighbourhoods, but other parts of city are grabbling with tens of thousands of abandoned or vacant homes and businesses. Orr, the citys state-appointed financial emergency manager, didnt return messages seeking comment Wednesday. ' ' '
