Manchester City – Bournemouth
Manchester City hosts Bournemouth in a match from the 19th round of the English Premier League.
City are the convincing leader in the Premier League, having a record of 17 wins and just one draw in 18 games played. They have 11 points advantage in front of their big rivals Manchester United and right now they look like the big and main favourite for the title. It’d be very surprising if Manchester City fail to win the title, given the current situation and the way they perform.
Pep Guardiola’s team is playing the best football in England right now and they are closer and closer to winning the title. The Catalan manager had some trouble in his first season in English football, but right now everything looks just fine for him and his players. The Citizens are looking unstoppable, at least in England.
Now Man City are facing Bournemouth at the Ettihad Stadium. Bournemouth are 16th in the Premier League standings, having won 16 points so far. Their record in the league is 4 wins, 4 draws and 10 losses. Bournemouth are just one point above the 18th Newcastle and the relegation zone, so they need to start winning more points as soon as possible. But can they do it against the best team in the country?
Pep Guardiola can’t rely on the injured Benjamin Mendy and John Stones, while the captain Vincent Kompany and David Silva are currently doubtful for the next game. Most likely they are going to be given a rest against Bournemouth.
As for Bournemouth, they will be without the injured Tyrone Mings, while Harry Arter, Jermain Defoe, Charlie Daniels, Joshua King and Brad Smith are all doubtful for the game.
Manchester City are the big favourite for the match against Bournemouth. The Citizens are flying right now and they are main favourites for the title.
