Manchester City are currently 5th in league standings with 49 points, just one points from the top four. They’ve fought hard against Swansea in the previous match to secure a valuable 3 points, thanks to Gabriel Jesus injury time strike. Another win here surely lift them up to 2nd on league table.
Bournemouth must be in low confidence coming into this match after failed to win in their last 6 competitive matches, and they could be sucked into the relegation zone if no change in their performance as they’re just 6 points above the zone. Bournemouth havefailed to win in their last 4 matches at home, scoring 6 and conceding 10 goals in the process.
Bournemouth have gone over in 4 of their last 5 matches and 3 of their last 4 home games. Man City have done likewise in each of their last 5 matches and 4 of their last 5 away games.
Two of Bournemouth’s last three home matches have seen high scoring draws with 2-2 against Watford and 3-3 versus Arsenal. Man City are very inconsistent on the road having netted 12 in their last four away from home but also losing three of seven matches including hammerings at Everton and Leicester City. I can see this ending in stalemate, 1-1 or 2-2 likely.
