Premier League: City to burst Bournemouth’s bubble

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City make the journey south for a Premier League clash with Bournemouth this weekend.

In their first fixture, City faced another coastal side in the form of newly promoted Brighton, taking a comfortable 2-0 win to kick-off their season where anything other than being crowned champions will be seen as a disappointment.

However, their momentum was stunted in their very next, and most recent, game when the Citizens could only manage a draw against Everton, so they will be back with a vengeance for the win this weekend at 1.31.

Record-breaking defensive signing Kyle Walker will be absent after picking up two yellows against the Toffees and the Cherries will look to capitalise upon any weaknesses at the back.

Bournemouth won their most recent game 2-0 against Watford but getting the win is extremely unlikely here – however, if they can make it to half-time it’s 3.69 for under for the teams to be at a stale mate going into the break.

With rivals Spurs and Arsenal had both losing last weekend, City have a chance to gather some traction and to prove a point, so if anyone is set to keep a clean sheet at the end of the 90 it’s going to be Pep’s men who are 2.00 not to concede and a tempting 6.81 to win 2-0.
