They may be six points outside the relegation zone, but Eddie Howe will know that Bournemouth's recent form could see them dragged into a serious battle to stay in the Premier League.
That worrying run of results could be set to continue as the Cherries welcome Manchester City to the vitality Stadium on Monday - a match in which Pep Guardiola's side are just 1/2 (1.50) with Betfair to win.
That price might not attract too much interest but the opportunity to take a quote of 6/1 (7.0) when opening a new account looks much more appealing.
To take up these odds, simply register using the link provided, back Manchester City at the usual price, and if they win, the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value. Winnings paid in free bets, T&C's apply.
Not only are the home side without Callum Wilson for the rest of the campaign, but there are huge issues at the other end of the pitch, too. Since their last win against Swansea on New Year's Eve, Bournemouth have conceded 19 goals in seven matches.
With Manchester City seemingly having turned a corner, thanks in no small part to Gabriel Jesus, the visitors will surely fancy their chances of going from fifth all the way up into second place with a victory in this game, cutting Chelsea's advantage to eight points in the process.
Those odds of 1/2 (1.50) tell their own story, and while Howe may have been linked with being Arsene Wenger's successor in recent months, his side's struggles of late mean he the 39-year-old faces a battle to keep his current side in the top flight. City won the reverse fixture 4-0 and given their defensive issues, a repeat certainly doesn't look out of the question.
The 6/1 (7.0) is expected to be extremely popular with new Betfair customers ahead of what looks a great chance for Guardiola's side to secure a third consecutive win and take a huge step towards ensuring Champions League football next term.
