Bournemouth vs Manchester City Match Preview
Bournemouth have a dreadful record against Manchester City and business as usual is expected when the English treble champions visit the south coast this weekend.
In fairness to the Cherries, they have put up a good fight when hosting City in the last two seasons and never more so than on the corresponding weekend two years ago as they only went down to a Raheem Sterling winner deep into stoppage time – with the England forward then sent off amid unsavoury scenes during his team’s exuberant celebrations.
But despite their efforts, Eddie Howe’s side just cannot get a result against the current kings of the Premier League and it is difficult to see why things should be any different here.
Having started their season against two newly-promoted clubs, Bournemouth do at least sit level on four points with City after a 1-1 home draw with Sheffield United and a 2-1 victory away to Aston Villa.
City, of course, feel aggrieved not to be on the maximum six after what they thought was a last-gasp winning goal against Tottenham last week was ruled out by VAR for handball.
But Pep Guardiola’s side should leave the pitch in a better frame of mind this time as they would need to have a serious off-day to slip up against Bournemouth.
