The stats behind our Bournemouth vs Man City predictions:

  • There has been just one clean sheet in the last six meetings between these sides across all competitions.
  • Man City have won all six of those matches by a 21-5 combined scoreline.
  • Phil Foden has scored in each of his last four appearances against Bournemouth across all competitions.

Man City chasing for title

Defending champions Manchester City are second in the table and four points behind Liverpool with a game in hand. Just last week Pep Guardiola’s side were in firm control of the title race, but a draw with Chelsea saw them lose some ground. Although they beat Brentford in midweek, which was their game in hand, Liverpool got a victory over Luton to keep their grip on top spot. It means that even if Man City win this weekend, they’ll still be one point behind Liverpool, having played the same amount of games. And it’ll turn their trip to Anfield next month must win.

After rallying and flying up the table, Bournemouth have once again hit a stumbling block. Going into this game, the Cherries are six Premier League games without a win, taking just three points from a possible 18 during that time and dropping to 13th in the table as a result. However, they remain eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Bournemouth vs Man City match tip

Man City to win and over 3.5 goals @ 17/10 with BetGoodwin

This is a fixture that Man City have dominated, and it’s hard to see it going any other way this weekend. The Citizens have won their past 14 games against Bournemouth across all competitions, and have never lost against the Cherries — drawing only two of their 20 matches in total. Since Bournemouth were promoted back to the Premier League last season, Man City’s three wins have come at an aggregate score of 14-2, scoring at least four goals each time.

Bournemouth vs Man City odds


*Odds correct as of 19:30 on February 23

There isn’t a more one-sided matchup in Premier League history than Bournemouth vs Man City. The Citizens have won all 13 of their Premier League games against Bournemouth, the best 100% record any team has against another in English top-flight history. Bournemouth’s failure to win any of their 19 league matches against Man City is also the most one side has ever faced another without winning in English Football League history. So you can see why Man City are the heavy favourites.
