Bournemouth v Man City Preview

Bournemouth’s Form

Bournemouth are sitting comfortably in 13th position following 3 draws and 2 defeats in their last 5 league games. Their 28-point total is also only 11 points shy of their 39-point haul last season with 14 matches left to play to surpass that. Their Expected Points position has them even better off in 11th with 4 more points.

Last weekend, Bournemouth suffered injury-time heartache with Newcastle equalising through Matt Ritchie in the 92nd-minute to prevent them from grabbing an unexpected 1-2 victory in St James’ Park. Although the XG stats, 2.38 vs 2.08, suggest that 2-2 was a fair reflection of the game.

Bournemouth could leapfrog Fulham and move into 12th with a shock victory against Man City here.

Man City’s Form

Man City have already won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World this season. Despite this success, it looks like only the beginning as they remain favourites for the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League as we gear toward the business end of the season with very few sides looking like they can stop them.

Midweek, Guardiola’s side had an important 1-0 win over Brentford, with Haaland getting the crucial goal in the 71st-minute to keep the pressure on Liverpool at the top of the table along with Arsenal below them. It was a deserved victory going by the advanced stats with City having an XG of 2.54 to Brentford’s 0.5.

City can go within 1 point of Liverpool at the top of the table with a victory.

Key Players To Watch

Dominic Solanke – Bournemouth

The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker is finally coming into his own this season after arguably having plenty of unfulfilled potential at Premier League level.

This season in 28 matches across all competitions Solanke has 16 goals and 4 assists and he will be their primary threat come Saturday evening.

Phil Foden – Man City

The Manchester maestro is tremendously versatile playing across all four positions in the front four this season Making him a key cog in this Guardiola side.

Foden continued his fine form with a goal and an assist against Copenhagen midweek to bring his tally to 15 goals and 10 assists from 38 games in all competitions.

Bournemouth v Man City Prediction & Best Bet

Prediction: Bournemouth 0-3 Man City

Bournemouth have drawn 3 of their last 5 league games, including against Newcastle. However, they’ve never beaten Man City and this will likely prove another tough test against the in-form Manchester outfit.

City seem to be getting stronger and stronger as the weeks pass by, usually finding a way to win no matter what the circumstances, showing the form of champions that has won them so much already under Guardiola.

There is no way I can see Bournemouth getting anything from this game. 

Best Bet: Man City Win + Under 4.5 Goals @ 7/2
