Without any win in their last five league games, Bournemouth will be facing a tough challenge when they host Manchester City at the Goldsands Stadium in the 25th round of the English Premier League.
Bournemouth Looking To Avoid Bottom 3
The hosts have been struggling in the Premier League in the last few rounds. They face a real relegation threat at the moment. Bournemouth have collected a total of 2 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Premier League. Their last league match was against Everton away from home where they lost 6-3.
Bournemouth are currently sitting in the 14th place in the league table. They have 26 points from 7 wins, 5 draws and 12 losses. The team scored 35 goals and conceded 47 since the start of the season.
Simon Francis came off at half time in Bournemouth’s 6-3 defeat to Everton with a hamstring injury and isn’t expected to recover in time to feature against Manchester City on Sunday. With Charlie Daniels and Adam Smith also huge doubts Howe could have a real selection headache at the back this weekend.
City To Get top 4
The visitors have started the season on the right foot but they dropped points in recent weeks. The team have been struggling with injuries but many players came back and are available for selection. Manchester City have collected a total of 10 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Premier League. Their last league match was against Swansea City at home where they won 2-1.
Manchester City are currently sitting in the 5th place in the league table. They have 49 points from 15 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses. They have scored 49 goals and conceded 29 since the start of the season.
Pep Guardiola has a full squad to pick from other than long-term absentee Ilkay Gundogan. Gabriel Jesus’ brace against Swansea could mean Sergio Aguero is benched for a third game in a row, although Guardiola has hinted the pair could play together. With such an array of attacking talent, Guardiola’s problem is getting them all in the same team.
Head To Head
Manchester City have won 3 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 4-0 to Man City at home with ten men.
