Manchester City entertain Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium for their English Premier League encounter.

City have never lost to the Cherries in all their previous seven meetings and with their present form where they are on an 18-match winning streak in the league, it is unlikely that they lose here. Bet365 is offering (1.10) for them to continue that winning run.

Knowing that Pep Guardiola’s men have extended their lead at the top to 11 points, it is unlikely they will take their legs off the pedal as they aim to secure their fifth Premier League title.

The only time both sides ended the game all square was in 1999 and a chance for a repeat of this is coming at a price of (9.00).

On the other side, Eddie Howe’s charges will be heading into this tie on an inauspicious note following their loss to Chelsea in the League Cup on Wednesday night. Besides, they are just two places above the relegation zone after picking 16 points from their 18 outings. 

In addition, they are winless in their last six duels and their away record is nothing to write home about having failed to win any of their last three engagements outside the Vitality Stadium. The betting firm has tagged them as massive underdogs for this tie at an offer of (23.00).

The Citizens last lost at home in December 2016 against Chelsea and have gone 31 games without another defeat. Odds of (1.012) is available for them to continue with the feat.

Moreover, they have scored 12 goals just in their last four games - averaging three goals per match. The bookmakers offer (1.22) for over 2.5 goals to surface before the end of the clash.

Raheem Sterling bagged a brace in City's 4-1 thrashing of Tottenham Hotspur and the England international is priced at (1.90) to score anytime.

Sergio Aguero has registered 13 goals this season and punters looking to make a good investment can back him to net anytime at the price of (1.30) with Bet365.
