Bournemouth v Manchester City: Tips, Predictions and Odds

Manchester City can move within a point of Premier League leaders Liverpool if they can get the better of Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

After a brief bump in the road when drawing 1-1 against Chelsea, the Citizens returned to winning ways when edging past Brentford 1-0 on Tuesday night.

The title is no longer in City’s hands, as they trail Liverpool by four points with just one game in hand, but Pep Guardiola’s side can close the gap with a victory at a Bournemouth side that haven’t won in the league since Boxing Day.

Bournemouth v Manchester City betting tips and predictions

Manchester City to win and both teams to score @ 13/8

City are unbeaten in 16 matches in all competitions heading into this fixture and have won eight away matches in a row, with their last road defeat coming at Aston Villa on 6th December.

The Citizens have been their usual fluent self in the final third, scoring 58 goals in the league and last failing to hit the back of the net in that loss to Villa.

Defensive performances have left a lot to be desired and they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six away games in the top-flight, conceding 10 goals across this period.

This should give Bournemouth hope they can get on the scoresheet at the Vitality Stadium, where they have failed to score in just one of their last nine fixtures.

But chalking up a victory against a rampant City will be difficult, especially when the Citizens won November’s meeting 6-1 and also triumphed 4-1 in this fixture last season.

Justin Kluivert over 0.5 shots on target @ 7/4

Bournemouth have plenty of pace in their side and this could hurt City, who often leave themselves exposed at the back as they attempt to break down teams that sit in.

The Cherries produced a solid counter-attacking display at Newcastle last time out, coming away from St James’ Park with a 2-2 draw, and Justin Kluivert caught the eye in that clash despite not scoring.

Kluivert’s speed and dribbling ability got him into a number of good positions and he is capable of landing a shot at City stopper Ederson.

Jeremy Doku over 0.5 assists @ 3/1

Belgium international Jeremy Doku has settled into life at City nicely since his summer arrival from Rennes and arguably his best game this season came in the reverse fixture, the 6-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.

The 21-year-old registered a stunning four assists and scored one goal in that thrashing and he will be hoping to play another starring role against the Cherries.

Doku’s pace and agility has made him one of the most dangerous players in the division and although he is not the finished article, the 3/1 on him to chalk up one assist in this clash is hard to turn down.
