Premier League at Coral

Bournemouth Prediction – Can Bournemouth keep run going?

Having taken 4 points from their first 2 matches of this new Premier League campaign, Bournemouth may feel they can get something from this Sunday afternoon clash against Manchester City, and will be hoping that the title holders are still a little rusty.

A point in a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United on the opening day of the top flight season opened Bournemouth’s account on home turf at their Vitality Stadium, and The Cherries then produced an impressive display at Villa Park in last weekend’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa

Results at home continue to be Bournemouth’s best chance of maintaining their Premier League status, and having lost just 3 of their last 11 matches at home in the top flight, Eddie Howe’s side are certainly no pushovers as they look to make a top half finish this term.

Goals also usually feature at the Vitality Stadium as Bournemouth will always push forward and know only one way under Howe, and this is evident in this fixture as 6 of the last 8 meetings between these two sides have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Manchester City Prediction – Can Man City return to winning ways?

A frustrating 2-2 draw with Tottenham last weekend cost the current Premier League title holders two points as they were held by the North London club at their Etihad Stadium, but Manchester City will nevertheless be confident they can return to winning ways down on the south coast on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester City opened their account in this season’s Premier League campaign in emphatic fashion as the visitors recorded a 5-0 thrashing of West Ham away from home at the London Stadium, and it matters very little if Manchester City are playing at home or away these days.

City are unbeaten in their last 16 matches overall in the top flight, winning 15 of these, so the visitors bring a formidable record into this clash against the relative minnows, Bournemouth, as Pep Guardiola’s side look to make amends for last week’s draw.

The visitors have also won their last 8 away matches on the trot and have scored a total of 20 goals during this impressive period on their travels, and with the likes of Sterling (4 goals) and Aguero (2 goals) in form and up front, further goals are expected on the south coast today.


Key-Facts – Bournemouth v Manchester City

  • Bournemouth still remain unbeaten so far this season in the EPL
  • Manchester City have won their last 8 away matches on the trot in the EPL
  • 6 of the last 8 meetings between these two sides have resulted in over 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

Bournemouth will be on the front foot here while Manchester City have the incentive of catching up Liverpool.
