What Trueform says for Bournemouth vs Man City
Manchester City are showing signs of fatigue as they chase success on four fronts but should still have enough in the tank to edge out Bournemouth.
The Blues have won all seven Premier League meetings with the Cherries, who are coming off a 5-1 drubbing at Arsenal in midweek.
We like 11/4 for an away win by 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the multiple correct score market for our opening Bournemouth vs Man City prediction.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth suffered a ninth straight away defeat when thrashed by the Gunners on Wednesday, with Lys Mousset’s first-half strike a rare bright spot at Emirates Stadium.
Eddie Howe admitted: “Arsenal may have played well but our perspective is clear that we can do so much better and are capable of much more than that.
“We will not kid ourselves and our analysis has to be that it was not acceptable. We will reflect on the game honestly.
“It was a difficult night epitomised by our start to the match and it was uncharacteristic of us to not be good in any aspect of our game.”
The Cherries have been much better on home turf, though, going five games without defeat at this venue in the Premier League, including a 4-0 hammering of Chelsea here.
Josh King has netted four times in the last three top-flight fixtures at Vitality Stadium, so 5/2 for him to score at anytime appeals from the Bournemouth vs Man City odds.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Boruc, Ake, Smith, Clyne, Mepham, Gosling, Surman, Ibe, Fraser, Mousset, King.
Bournemouth will make a late call on Callum Wilson, who has missed five games with a knee problem.
David Brooks could start against his former club having returned to the squad following an ankle problem, but midfielder Jefferson Lerma will serve out his two-match suspension.
Junior Stanislas and Dominic Solanke (both thigh) are still not fit. Steve Cook (groin) remains sidelined, as well as long-term absentees Simon Francis and Lewis Cook (both knee).
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City managed to follow up their penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea in the EFL Cup final by sneaking a 1-0 triumph over West Ham, via another spot-kick.
Sergio Aguero converted in the 59th minute after referee Stuart Attwell judged Felipe Anderson to have fouled substitute Bernardo Silva.
That decision was a touch soft, but the win was no more than City deserved, as they dominated possession and created numerous chances.
Pep Guardiola commented: “We didn’t score as many goals as we needed for the way we played, but I am so delighted with the way we played.”
Regarding the title race, he added: “I think we are going to drop points, I think Liverpool is going to drop points, so we are going to see, until the end.
“Important now is to refresh and have a good recovery and prepare for the game against Bournemouth.”
Raheem Sterling has scored in six straight appearances against the Cherries and 4/1 for him to break the deadlock here is added to our Bournemouth vs Man City betting tips.
The England winger only came on as a second-half substitute against the Hammers, so should hopefully be ready to start again this weekend.
Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Danilo, Kompany, Otamendi, Gundogan, De Bruyne, D Silva, Mahrez, Zinchenko, Aguero, Sane.
Defender John Stones and striker Gabriel Jesus are back in contention for City. The pair have missed the last three games with groin and hamstring injuries respectively.
Centre-back Aymeric Laporte (hamstring) and midfielder Fernandinho (groin) remain on the sidelines and the game also comes too soon for Fabian Delph despite his return to training after a leg injury.
