Manchester City v Bournemouth Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 3pm UK Time, Saturday 4th November 2023

 

Manchester City will be aiming to extend their winning run to four games across competitions this weekend and they will be confident of securing all three points against a Bournemouth outfit which were decisively dumped out of the EFL Cup by Liverpool earlier in the week.

Prior to their meeting with Manchester United last weekend, Man City boss Pep Guardiola stated that the Red Devils were always a very dangerous side to play against, however his charges strolled to a comfortable 3-0 defeat of their local rivals to end October on a high. Erling Haaland bagged a brace against United with Phil Foden rubbing salt in the wound by adding a third, thus piling even more misery on Erik ten Hag and his beleaguered side.

This victory and the win over Brighton & Hove Albion have put Guardiola’s side firmly back on the right track as they look to secure a fourth successive Premier League title but they still trail league leaders Tottenham Hotspur by two points. Nevertheless, City have won each of their fourteen Premier League games on home soil since the start of the year while they haven’t dropped a single point in their twelve top-flight meetings with weekend opponents AFC Bournemouth, this run including a 4-0 demolition in 2022/23. Naturally, Guardiola and his men will be full of confidence that they can continue this winning streak against the Cherries on Saturday.

Having returned a miserable six defeats and three draws from their opening nine Premier League outings this season, Bournemouth finally grabbed themselves a win last weekend when they edged past fellow strugglers Burnley to the tune of 2-1. This has helped the south-coast side climb out of the relegation zone but much more work needs to be done and the chances of them coming out on top at the Etihad Stadium are extremely slim indeed.

Indeed, it’s virtually impossible to go against a Manchester City win in this one given their excellent form on home soil and their excellent winning record against the Cherries. Bournemouth have managed just a single clean sheet in their last fifteen league games and it’s hard to see them containing a City side which have banged in eight goals in their last three matches.

 

Back Man City to win 3-0 at best odds of 13/2
