Man City welcome Bournemouth to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday at 3pm (UK time).

Man City vs Bournemouth odds


*Odds correct as of 17:00 on November 03

With Tottenham playing on Monday night and Arsenal playing in the late kick-off vs. Newcastle, Man City have the chance to go back to the top of the Premier League table, for the time being at least. Pep Guardiola’s side have been unstoppable so far at home during this calendar year, winning all 14 of their Premier League matches at the Etihad in 2023.  The Citizens also boast a perfect record against this weekends opponents, winning all 12 of their Premier League games against Bournemouth, the best 100% record any team has against another in English top-flight history.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, finally put three points on the board last weekend with a 2-1 win against fellow strugglers Burnley to earn their first league win under Andoni Iraola and move out of the relegation places. It will be an incredibly tough job to make it back-to-back wins however, with Man City  unbeaten in their last 53 home league games against sides starting the day in the bottom-four of the table (W48 D5), since a 2-1 defeat to Spurs in November 2008, who started the day bottom.
