Bournemouth vs Man City Prediction 26/08/2017

Manchester City travel to Bournemouth for Saturday’s lunchtime kickoff in the Premier League having been held by Everton on Monday night.

Pep Guardiola’s side fought back from a goal and a man down to score a late equaliser versus Everton following their 2-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on the opening weekend.

Bournemouth have been beaten 1-0 at West Brom and 2-0 at home by Watford to start their new campaign.

Whilst City’s attack hasn’t tested their opposition goalkeepers a great deal and their defence has looked shaky when called upon in their opening two games I think this Saturday will be the game that they get ticking.

The Cherries have not offered a great deal of threat in their opening two games as Watford were clear and deserved winners at the Vitality Stadium last Saturday.

Sergio Aguero has got in some great positions to cause defences problems in City’s first two games, without always having his shooting boots on.  You can guarantee that the Argentine will find them eventually and this weekend could be that game.

David Silva remains an excellent playmaker in City’s attack, as does Kevin De Bruyne.  Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling both have the pace to cause the Bournemouth full-backs problems.

I expect City to run riot on the Bournemouth goal, though I cannot guarantee they’ll be capable of keeping a clean sheet.

Best bet: Manchester City -1.5 is 1.91 with Bet365
