DEFENDER Steve Cook admitted Cherries would have to be “immaculate” to stamp their authority on Manchester City but said: “We’ll attack it as we do any other game.”

Pep Guardiola’s men are the only team the Dorset club have failed to pick up a point against since their promotion to the top flight.

But with four points from their opening two league fixtures against Sheffield United and Aston Villa this campaign, centre-half Cook is determined to keep his side’s unbeaten record intact.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's contest (2pm), Cook told the Daily Echo: “We’ve had a good start to the season and in front of our home fans we always want to do well.

“Obviously we have to be immaculate. Defensively and attacking. If ever we need a full performance from everyone, it’s Sunday.

“If you don’t believe in it then you’re never going to get anything in life. We’ll attack it as we do any other game.

“It is going to be a really, really tough game but we’re sitting nicely now, we’ve got that confidence behind us and why not? We’re good at home and we’ll be looking for the win.”
