Pep Guardiola's side are heavy favourites to take the points at the Vitality Stadium and our tipster is backing them to win an entertaining clash

Manchester City are looking to bounce back from their 2-2 draw with Tottenham last weekend when they travel to Bournemouth on Sunday.

That stalemate was the first time Pep Guardiola’s men have dropped Premier League points since January, already leaving them off the pace in their quest to win three titles in a row.

Bournemouth vs Man City latest odds

City are available at just 2/11 (1.18) with bet365 to claim their second win of the season when they head to the Vitality Stadium.

Bournemouth have not beaten City in any of their 14 previous league meetings and are massive 12/1 (13.0) outsiders to buck that trend here, with a draw priced at 6/1 (7.0).

Bournemouth vs Man City team news

Sergio Aguero could be benched after he was taken off for Gabriel Jesus last week. John Stones missed the draw with Spurs with a muscle problem and is doubtful here. Leroy Sane and Benjamin Mendy are long-term absentees.

The Cherries are missing Lewis Cook, Simon Francis, Junior Stanislas, David Brooks, Lloyd Kelly and Dan Gosling to injury. Harry Wilson should keep his place in the starting line-up after marking his first start with a goal last week.

Bournemouth vs Man City preview

Bournemouth’s 2-1 win at Aston Villa last weekend marked just their second victory in their last six Premier League games, but there is little to suggest they will win back-to-back league matches for the first time since January.

Eddie Howe’s men were perhaps fortunate to take the points in Birmingham despite leading 2-0 after 12 minutes, with Man City likely to be more clinical than newly-promoted Villa.

Indeed, Guardiola’s side have already scored seven goals this season, the most in the top flight, and their 16 shots on target is also more than any other club have managed.

Bournemouth vs Man City tips and predictions

Whilst the 2/11 (1.18) quote for City to win is far too short to consider as a single, bet365 offer 21/20 (2.05) that the champions win with the game featuring over 3.5 goals.

As well as paying out in the visitors’ only other away game this season, it would have landed in five of the last eight meetings between this pair.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
