Manchester City vs AFC Bournemouth - Premier League Preview and Odds

December 01, 2018 15:00pm - Etihad Stadium

Premier League

After securing their progression to the knockout stages of the Champions League, Manchester City will now turn their attention back to the domestic scene where a home clash against AFC Bournemouth awaits. The Sky Blues will look to extend their winning streak to six games and increase their lead at the top of the table. Currently, they are just two point clear of chasing Liverpool, the only other club yet to be beaten in the league. However, the Merseyside club do not play until Sunday.

During the last five games, Pep Guardiola`s men have scored 19 goals and conceded just two resulting in a league best goal difference of +35. They have won every domestic home game this season and will start the match as clear favourites.

AFC Bournemouth arrive here on the back of a three-game losing streak and will have their work cut out to take anything from this game. Home defeats to Manchester United and Arsenal came either side of an away loss to Newcastle, all three games ending with 2-1 scorelines.

Despite that slump, Eddie Howe`s men remain eighth in the table thanks to their bright start to the season. Their positive approach to matches has yielded results against some of the lesser sides, but they have yet to take a point from a top five team in two attempts.

Betting odds and tips

It is hard to imagine anything other than a home win in this fixture. City have yet to drop a point at home and the visitors are winless in three. Bournemouth will approach the game in a positive manner, but could find themselves overwhelmed by an in form Manchester City side who seem invincible at home.

City have conceded in their last two home games while Bournemouth have netted in their last three aways. As a result, the `both teams to score` bet could add value to the home win.

You can back Man City Win and Both Teams to Score at 13/10.
