Manchester City Preview – Citizens to move on to six points?

Manchester City’s 2022-23 campaign started with a disappointing FA Community Shield defeat to Liverpool at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium. City have now kicked off the last two seasons with Community Shield defeats.

However, they responded well with an opening weekend Premier League win over West Ham at the London Stadium. New signing Erling Haaland was City’s hero in the capital, scoring both goals in a routine 2-0 triumph.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to be winning at half time & full time

Pep Guardiola will be demanding another professional performance from his boys at the weekend. Man City are the huge favourites, but nothing is a given in the Premier League. Nevertheless, the champions should be too hot to handle at the Etihad on Saturday.

Bournemouth Preview – Heavy defeat for Parker’s Cherries

Bournemouth are back in the Premier League after securing promotion from the EFL Championship last season. Scott Parker’s boys finished runners-up to Fulham, taking an impressive 88 points from 46 league games.

The Cherries started life back in the top tier of English football in the best possible way, beating Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa at the Vitality Stadium last weekend. Jefferson Lerma’s goal in the second minute sent them on their way, and Kieffer Moore doubled their advantage late on.
