Bournemouth vs Manchester City for the English Premier League championship match on Sunday at Dean Court Stadium.
Bournemouth hosts Manchester City, Premier League champions on Sunday, with the faith to make the most of the momentum gained in the first two rounds of this competition.
The Cherries scored a significant victory in their last game against Aston Villa at Villa Park. Eddie Howe’s men showed a lot of consistency in their defence as Aston Villa put a lot of pressure on the team, so they got the three points.
For this game, Bournemouth’s defensive levels will have to be higher if they want to have some aspirations of a positive result against Pep Guardiola’s City.
Bournemouth will surely be confident when they start this game after achieving four points in two matches. However, their home form has not been so reliable, winning one of their last seven home games. In the previous home match, they tied 1-1 with Sheffield United.
Head to head Bournemouth have a very poor track record against Manchester City, they have been defeated in their last eight clashes since Bournemouth was promoted to the Premier League.
Like the cherries, the Citizens scored four points in both Premier League openings against West Ham and Tottenham.
Manchester City comes into Sunday’s game a bit frustrated, as they saw a goal disallowed in a 2-2 home draw against Tottenham due to a controversial decision by VAR.
Pep Guardiola’s men are in good shape, as we have been used to, they have won their last eight away games and have kept a clean sheet in six of those eight games.
Manchester City is a team that usually scores a lot of goals, and everyone thinks that in this Sunday’s game things will not be much different, but all the caution is needed.
The difference in quality between the two sets is evident, the current Manchester City team is valued at about 1.14 billion euros, while Bournemouth is worth about 288 million.
Despite the millions of differences between these two sets, I think the home team can make a positive result.
