Man City remain in the hunt for a fourth straight Premier League title, and Pep Guardiola’s side have bounced back excellently after a wobble last month by winning each of their previous two league fixtures. The latest of those was a straightforward derby success at Old Trafford against Man United.
A victory this weekend would send City to the top of the league standings, before Spurs face off with Chelsea on Sunday. Erling Haaland was in dominant form at the Theatre of Dreams last weekend, as the Norwegian netted a brace in the 3-0 success against the Red Devils.
Things are beginning to look up for Bournemouth, as they finally ended their long wait for a first victory of the season in their previous match. The Cherries needed a contentious VAR decision in their favor in the closing stages, as they battled to a 2-1 victory in front of their home fans against Burnley.
That victory was enough to lift Bournemouth up to 17th in the standings, but they currently sit just a point clear of the bottom three places in the Premier League. The Cherries will need to be at their best defensively this weekend, as they have already allowed 21 goals across their ten matches this term, which is the third-worst defensive record in the competition.
Man City vs Bournemouth Prediction
City are very difficult to oppose this weekend, as they have won each of their last 13 against the Cherries, averaging 2.1 goals per game. The spread looks the preferred betting option this weekend, as we expect City to land a dominant home win.
