Manchester City vs Bournemouth
KICK OFF: Saturday 1st December 2018 | 16:00 CET
PREMIER LEAGUE: Matchday 14 | Etihad Stadium, Manchester
Can Bournemouth FC Stem the Blue Wave or will it be Business as usual for Manchester City?
With Liverpool breathing down their necks, Manchester City knows that 3 points at home to Bournemouth is a must. The form book would also suggest this is the most likely outcome, as City won every Premier league meeting between the two teams, home and away!
The Citizens will have Bernado Silva back in the squad after he missed the game vs West Ham. Mendy is out for at least three months following his knee surgery, and De Bruyne continues to work his way back to fitness.
Bournemouth are sweating on the fitness of full-back Adam Smith, he sat out the 1-2 loss to Arsenal and is a vital part of Eddie Howe’s defensive set-up. Otherwise, the Cherries travel to Manchester with a fit squad.
Despite having an excellent start to the season, Man City will be too much for them. I don’t expect City to rout this game, but a home win is highly likely.
Result Prediction: Manchester City Win
Score Prediction: 2-0 or over 1.5 goals
