What Trueform says for Man City vs Bournemouth
Manchester City’s emphatic superiority over Bournemouth is reflected in the odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash and our Trueform ratings.
Pep Guardiola’s side have looked simply unstoppable so far this season and can also boast five straight head-to-head wins over the Cherries since they reached the top flight.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Guardiola was able to give most of his star names the night off in midweek and still reach the EFL Cup semi-finals by beating Leicester on penalties.
The big guns will be rolled out again on Saturday, though, as City go in search of a 17th straight Premier League success following last week’s convincing 4-1 victory over Tottenham.
Spurs did not just roll over at Etihad Stadium, but the runaway leaders showed they can cope with physical tactics, as Ilkay Gundogan netted early on, Kevin De Bruyne added a fierce 70th-minute strike and Raheem Sterling bagged a late brace.
“We played really good to beat one of the strongest teams in the Premier League,” enthused Guardiola. “Without the ball, we are a humble team.”
De Bruyne set the tone by constantly pressing Tottenham when the visitors had possession and he totally overshadowed Dele Alli in the midfield battle.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth threatened to upset Chelsea in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night, with Dan Gosling hitting a 90th-minute equaliser, only for Alvaro Morata to make it 2-1 in stoppage time.
More of the same spirit is now needed to improve their Premier League form after last week’s 4-0 home loss to Liverpool left them without a win in six top-flight fixtures.
The Cherries will take heart from a brave effort against City at Vitality Stadium back in August, when Charlie Daniels put them ahead but Sterling eventually snatched victory for the Blues seven minutes into injury time.
Leicester 1-1 MAN CITY (AET, 3-4 on pens) – Bernardo Silva
Chelsea 2-1 BOURNEMOUTH – Dan Gosling
Head-to-head: Bournemouth 1-2 Man City, Bournemouth 0-2 Man City, Man City 4-0 Bournemouth, Bournemouth 0-4 Man City, Man City 5-1 Bournemouth
