Betting tips Bournemouth vs. Manchester City

Bournemouth to give City a tough test

Manchester City take their unbeaten start to the new season to the south coast this weekend when they take on Bournemouth. Can the champions see off the Cherries? Have a read of our preview here:

Time to prove they mean business for Pep’s men

Manchester City saw their old enemy VAR rear its head again last weekend when they had a late goal against Tottenham ruled out. No, you haven’t gone back in time and found yourself back at the Champions League semi-final, this actually did happen a second time.

The new handball rule should really be viewed as the villain rather than the technology used to spot it. The change in stance states that if the ball hits a player’s arm, regardless of whether it was accidental or whether his arm was perpendicular to his nostrils, it will be given.

Regardless, City had more than enough chances to win the game against Pochettino’s side but failed to make their dominance count. They will have to be more ruthless against a Bournemouth side that contains some fantastic attacking threats.

They Cherries have not only recruited well but have also kept key players from last season. City will, therefore, have to be very careful and professional if they are to take the three points back north with them.

More progress for the Cherries

Being level on points with Manchester City after two games represents a positive start for Eddie Howe and his charges. The Cherries are unbeaten in their opening two games having earned a point against Sheffield United on the opening day before picking up the win against Aston Villa.

It is arguably the best side Bournemouth have put together and in keeping Callum Wilson, David Brooks, Ryan Fraser and Joshua King, they have given themselves every chance of improving on last season.

The new additions have also help build on the strong squad the already had. Harry Wilson arrived on loan from Liverpool this summer and his ability from range is already apparent.

Since the start of last season, Harry Wilson has netted 10 goals from outside the box in all competitions, more than any other player in English football.

The Cherries have more than enough in their side to give City a good game which makes this an intriguing match up.

Bournemouth v Manchester City betting tip

Although it is very hard to see Bournemouth getting a positive result against such formidable opposition, they could cause the champions some problems. This means that backing both teams to score at odds of 10/11 could be a decent pick in this one.
