On Wednesday evening, the German-speaking fans of the English Premier League were only able to observe the ranged fight in the duel for the championship in the live ticker. On the streaming portal DAZN neither the appearance of Liverpool (against Watford) nor that of Manchester City (against West Ham United) was broadcast live. However, both teams remained victorious and thus Klopps Reds lead the table paper-thin after 28 matchdays. High tension is guaranteed before the last ten games. At least in the meantime, this weekend the Guardiola-Elf can climb the table top. However, in the match between AFC Bournemouth and Manchester City, they will need at least a counter!
Bournemouth vs Manchester City Football Betting Tips
Although the Guardiola protected were not able to convince in the last weeks, football is known to be a result sport and to that extent there is hardly any reason for criticism. The results fit and above all defensive, the Skyblues presented extremely safe. The shape curve in the Cherries of AFC Bournemouth, however, shows clearly down. The Howe Elf profits from the good autumn of 2018 and is thus in the secured midfield of the league. A point win against the Skyblues would be a big surprise. This is also the opinion of the bookmakers, who only offer odds of just over 1.20 for the away win in the match between Bournemouth and Manchester City. The start of the game at Vitality Stadium is at 4 pm on Saturday afternoon.
Bournemouth – Statistics & Current Form
The English week brought a record for head coach Eddie Howe’s team – albeit a negative record that the team can not be proud of. At Arsenal London’s Emirates Stadium, it put the ninth (!) League away defeat into the lead for Bournemouth. This means the worst series since not less than 85 years. In the game against the Emery Elf, the Cherries never really found access to the gameplay and finally had to beat them 1: 5.
“Arsenal was too good for us. We were bad, we could not find any solutions with both the ball and the ball. This performance is disappointing and we have to work it up honestly! ” – Eddie Howe
In the post-match press conference, longtime Bournemouth head coach Eddie Howe (in office since October 2012) was visibly upset. The way of defeat was absolutely disappointing. With 34 points, the team after all ranks in the secured midfield of the league. Nine points ahead of the first relegation zone should be enough for a quiet season finish. Nevertheless, the current crisis of form (a point from four games) can not be denied. With leaders Liverpool, strong promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers and just the Gunners from London, the Howe-Elf recently had three teams from the top seven of the table in front of the chest. The home game against current Manchester City champions will be the penultimate top opponent for Howe. A point win would be despite home advantage (good 7-4-3 balance) quite surprising. With cleaners Jefferson Lerma (yellow card suspension) and top striker Callum Wilson (ten goals this season), the Cherries have to give up the two top stars on Saturday afternoon. The squad does not have the necessary breadth to compensate for these two failures. The fifth league game in series without full success is extremely likely. Bournemouth v Manchester City odds (Double Chance 1 / X) will offer odds above 4.00.

Boruc – Smith, Ake, Mepham, Clyne – Fraser, Gosling, Surman, Ibe – Mousset, King

Manchester City – Statistics & Current Form
Success coach Pep Guardiola described the win against West Ham United on Wednesday night as a “fantastic” win over a self-sacrificing team. Top goalscorer Sergio Agüero’s 18th goal of the season (from the penalty spot) sealed his 1-0 home win against the Hammers. Despite a stinging superiority (75% possession of the ball, 11: 2 shots on goal) Guardiola had to shiver for a long time. Finally, only the three counters in the table count. After the defending champion was already clearly behind in the back, the skyblues are again the clear favorite for the bookmakers to win the title in the English Premier League.
With Liverpool contesting the Merseyside Derby against Everton FC on Sunday, Manchester City have a draw at the Reds. Thanks to the outstanding offensive (75 goals this season), the Skyblues have the much better goal difference than the Reds and would accordingly pass in equal points at Liverpool. In recent weeks, the Spanish head coach Guardiola did not have much reason to complain. The blamable home loss to Newcastle United (1: 2) was but a small slip-up. Since then, the Skyblues have won seven competitive matches in a row. Impressive was the 6-0 against the Blues from London. Last weekend, Guardiola was also able to celebrate their first title win this season in the League Cup final against Chelsea.
Manchester City is bursting with self-confidence these days and shows time and time again that the team has the patience to trust in their own strengths, even in tight situations. Defensively, the team hardly allows anything and in the few enemy attacks Ederson is almost always on the spot. Currently, the Guardiola team has a very good balance between offense and defense. Accordingly, there are also few goals. If the match between Bournemouth and Manchester City is the right predictor of a zero victory for the Skyblues, instead of a 1.26 on the three-way market, there’s a lucrative 2.10 for that tip!
Expected lineup of Manchester City:
Ederson – Zinchenko, Kompany, Otamendi, Danilo – De Bruyne, Gundogan, Bernardo Silva – Sane, Aguero, Mahrez
