AFC Bournemouth v Manchester City Preview, Premiership, 13th February 2017

AFC Bournemouth head into this game having not had a great season so far and currently occupy 14th position in the league table on 26pts having secured 7 wins, 5 draws and 12 defeats from their 24 matches played.

The hosts have failed to win any of their last five league matches played, of which they have lost three and they face another very tough test on Monday night against a strong Manchester City side.

Manchester City head into the game having had a good season so far and currently occupy 5th position in the league table on 49pts having secured 15 wins, 4 draws and 5 defeats from their 24 matches played.

The visitors are just 1pt behind second and third placed Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal and will be fully aware that a victory in this game would move them back up into second place in the league table behind Chelsea.

AFC Bournemouth Team News :

Eddie Howe could be without three Bournemouth defenders when Manchester City visit the Vitality Stadium on Monday Night Football.

The Bournemouth boss has concerns over Simon Francis, Charlie Daniels and Adam Smith, with Francis and Daniels battling hamstring injuries.

Smith is also a doubt after missing last weekend’s defeat at Everton, meaning Howe may be forced into a defensive reshuffle ahead of City’s visit.

Aside from Bournemouth’s defensive headache, the hosts will definitely be without Callum Wilson. The striker underwent surgery on Thursday and remains sidelined for the rest of the season with a long-term knee injury.

Manchester City Team News :

Guardiola has a fully-fit Man City squad to choose from, and plans to make a call on his starting goalkeeper on the day of the match.

Willy Caballero has started City’s last three games since replacing Claudio Bravo, keeping clean sheets in two.

17 Goals have been scored in the previous 5 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 3.40.

4 of those Goals have came in the 2 previous matches played at the Vitality Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 2.00.

Based on both sets of data shown above it does seem to suggest that this game should see between two or three goals scored and the betting market Total Goals Scored 2 or 3 looks tempting for this one.

The Draw is a current a best price of 17/4 with Bet365 – Receive £200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers Registering an Account but with just one draw in the last five meetings, this does look like an unlikely outcome in this game.

Manchester City can move up into second place in the league with a victory and that should be all the incentive needed for the players to win this game and the visitors do look good value at their current best price of 1/2 with Stan James – Bet £10 & Receive £20 Free Bets when Registering a New Account

AFC Bournemouth v Manchester City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

AFC Bournemouth have it all to do in this match, not only were they destroyed 6-3 by Everton last weekend, they have also failed to win any of their last five league matches played and the confidence at the club must be at an all time low.

The hosts have only ever managed to pick up one point from five previous meetings against Manchester City and I don’t really see those statistics changing when all is said and done come Monday night.

Manchester City will have an eye on securing a champions league spot for next season and a victory would move them up into a clear second place in the league table and 2pts ahead of both Spurs and Arsenal.

The visitors have by far the stronger squad available for this match and for me this should be business as usual for City in what I expect to be a comfortable away win.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Manchester City to Win as with second place up for grabs with a victory and their previous domination of AFC Bournemouth over the years I would expect the visitors to have this game wrapped up by half time.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Manchester City attacking midfielder Kevin de Bruyne to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as this game does provide him with a good chance to get his name on the score-sheet.
