Bournemouth vs Manchester City Match Preview
Bournemouth haven’t make the best start in the new Premier League season and after two rounds they are standing at the bottom of the table without points. In the first round they lost away against West Brom 1-0, while last week Watford beat them 0-2, so home side still looking for points. Home side can’t be happy with their performance, especially in the attack, because they failed to score in both games. The match against Manchester City doesn’t come in the right moment, but they have to play attacking and try to take at least one point, which means that they have to hit the net at least once. Visitors will probably scored on this game, so “both teams to score” looks like a good betting prediction for the match between Bournemouth vs Manchester City. The newcomer from Sunderland, Defoe, played both matches (around 60 minutes) and failed to hit the net, so maybe he will manage to do it from his 3rd attempt.
Manchester City stand at the 5th position with two points less than their city rivals, Manchester United, so they have to beat Bournemouth in order to stay in the race for the title. In the first round Manchester City beat Brighton 0-2, while in the second round they played 1-1 against Everton at Etihad. Pep Guardiola can be satisfied with that point against Everton, because they were losing 0-1 at the half-time and had only 10 men on the pitch because Walker got the second yellow card and sent off. They are one of the main candidate to win the title, so they have to play on high level in order to finish at the top. Visitors won’t have easy job because home side is still without points and will be fully motivated to make good result upfront their supporters. Gabriel Jesus failed to score in both games, so he expects to finally hit the net.
