Match Preview

At home, Bournemouth are unbeaten in five league matches (W3, D2), and overall, they’ve scored two goals or more in nine of 14 here. Starting strong is also usually a theme, as they’ve only been behind at half time once in a PL game in front of their own fans this season.
However, Bournemouth have lost nine of ten league matches so far this season, when playing against the current top six of the PL standings, and without their 4-0 thumping of Chelsea as the anomaly, the Cherries’ aggregate scoreline against the top six would be GF 5, GA 30 – significantly more humiliating than it already is!
City, meanwhile, looked flat in their 1-0 win against West Ham in midweek after 120 minutes of Carabao Cup action. Still just one point off the top of the league, it marked their eighth win in nine PL matches.
Of course, it’s away from home that most points have slipped for City this season (W8, D2, L3). A trip to Bournemouth should not frighten the ‘Citizens’, however, as they’ve won all seven H2Hs since the hosts were promoted in 2015 – scoring 3.43 goals on average per match!
Players to watch: Joshua King has led the line well for Bournemouth in recent weeks, scoring four goals in the last six PL rounds. Sergio Agüero, meanwhile, tops the PL scoring chart after netting eight times in the last five league matches for City.
Stat attack: Five of the last seven H2Hs have seen over 3.5 goals
Bournemouth’s home PL matches have averaged 4.36 yellow cards this season.
In away matches against teams currently in the bottom half, City have either won by at least two goals (three times) or lost (twice).
