Bournemouth v Manchester City Premier League Preview, 25th August 2.00pm

The Cherries have had a decent start to the new Premier League campaign with four points from two games. They will have a tough task on their hands on the weekend when Manchester City come for a visit. Only a VAR intervention prevented the Citizens from making it two wins from two for the season as they were held to a draw by Spurs last weekend.

Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth have made an unbeaten start to the new Premier League season. They have managed four points from their two fixtures so far. They will have been slightly disappointed with their opening home draw against Sheffield United though, because the Cherries had been leading in the second half of that fixture against the newly promoted Blades.

Bournemouth then managed to make the most of some defensive errors by Aston Villa to claim a 2-1 away win last weekend. So a pretty good start by Eddie Howe and his men. But there has not been a clean sheet for them so how are they going to stand up against the might of Manchester City on the weekend? This is where the season is about to get real for them.

The Cherries posted a W8 D5 L6 record at home last season but they lost four of their six fixtures at the Vitality Stadium against the top six finishers. One of those was a 1-0 loss against Manchester City. Three of the four losses which they suffered against the top six were by a one goal margin only. Bournemouth managed to take a clean sheet in one third of their home fixtures last season.

Manchester City have scored at least two goals in 7 of their last 8 against Bournemouth
Bournemouth have never recorded a win against the Citizens (D2 L12)

Manchester City News and Form

Manchester City would have six points from their opening two games of the season were it not for VAR. The technology denied them a late winning goal at home against Tottenham for an accidental handball offence that nobody saw. Anyway that aside, Manchester City have looked very good once again this season. They opened their new campaign, which is another title defence of course, with a 5-0 away victory at West Ham.

They then looked to be on course as they dominated Spurs, but somehow didn’t manage to come away with the victory. Little adversities like that always seem to just push Manchester City on to even heightened degrees of brilliance. They will be keen to not let last weekend’s result affect them. Given that they have scored five away goals in one road game so far, they have every reason to be confident.

Manchester City earned an away record of W14 D2 L3 last season. They averaged exactly 2 goals per game away from home last term. Raheem Sterling has been their star performer in front of goal with four goals to his name already and the England forward is at 5/6 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 20th, 2019 at 8:15 a.m.)

Who will win – Bournemouth v Manchester City Predictions

This is likely to be a lot of one way traffic in the direction of the Bournemouth goal. Manchester City appear to be on their game at the moment, which is no real surprise. The Cherries haven’t made a bad start but keeping up with the Citizens is another matter.
