AFC Bournemouth v Manchester City: Match Preview & Odds

AFC Bournemouth host Manchester City at the Vitality Stadium in one of the Premier League’s late kick-offs on Saturday. Visitors, Manchester City are hoping to close the gap on leaders, Liverpool and ahead of the fixture we will provide the latest team news, match insights and betting tips as well as the very best free promotions and match odds from our partners at Ladbrokes.

Form

Manchester City have earned 56 points from their 25 matches and sit four points adrift of league leaders, Liverpool having played one game less. Pep Guardiola’s side edged out Brentford in  their last league games whilst away from home Man City have won seven straight games in all competitions. Manchester City go into Saturday’s fixture unbeaten in 16 matches in all competitions.

Hosts, AFC Bournemouth are 13th in the Premier League table with 28 points from 24 matches. However, they are winless in six league games and have drawn three of their last four. The Cherries’ most recent fixture ended 2-2 away at Newcastle United whilst their last home league game ended 1-1 against Nottingham Forest.

AFC Bournemouth v Manchester City: head-to-head

Manchester City have been dominant in past meetings between these two sides, Saturday’s visitors have won 18 and drawn 2 of the previous 20 matches played between them and AFC Bournemouth. In the Premier League, Manchester City have a 100% record against Saturday’s hosts, winning all 13 top-flight encounters.

The reverse fixture ended in a comprehensive 6-1 victory for Manchester City whilst the corresponding fixture at the Vitality Stadium last season finished 4-1 to the visitors.

Betting tips

Manchester City may be in red-hot form at the moment but Pep Guardiola’s side have fallen behind in six successive away league games. If the visitors are slow off the mark again on Saturday, that could give Dominic Solanke an opportunity to add to the 14 Premier League goals he’s registered already this season. Only Erling Haaland and Mohamed Salah have scored more league goals than Solanke so far this season yet the Bournemouth forward is 6/1 to score first.

Manchester City’s defensive frailties also offer great value at 4/6 in the ‘both teams to score market’ whilst Manchester to win and both teams to score looks reasonably priced at 8/5.

Phil Foden has scored in four straight matches against AFC Bournemouth and the England international is enjoying a decent run of form in front of goal at the moment with four goals in his side’s last two away games. Foden is 21/10 to score at any time on Saturday.

Erling Haaland is starting to find his feet again after a long spell on the sidelines and the Premier League’s top scorer has recorded three goals in his last three league games. You can back the Norwegian at 8/13 to score at any time but given Manchester City’s superiority in this fixture, we much prefer the 10/3 on offer for Haaland to score two or more.
