The Cherries have scored just scored three goals in their previous 8 fixtures which is the fewest in the league and they would face a massive challenge against Man City who would look to bounce back from their consecutive draws.

Although Gary O'Neil's men boast of a good goal-scoring record against Pep's side having scored in five out of their eight meetings. Although Bournemouth are yet to defeat Man City in their 17 attempts against the opposition, the longest losing run in England's top-flight.

Having lost 4-0 at Etihad against Man City, O'Neil's Cherries will have a huge task keeping the likes of Haaland and Mahrez at bay.

Manchester City's hopes of winning their third successive title have taken a massive dent after a draw against Nottingham Forest.

The Sky Blues defeated Arsenal to leap past the Gunners at the pinnacle of the table, but since then Pep's men have produced some shambolic set of results. Manchester City's away form in recent times has been a bit of a concern with the club failing to keep even a single clean sheet in their previous five fixtures.

Although Manchester City boasts 100% win record against their opposition in the Premier League winning all 11 games against Bournemouth. The reigning Premier League champions have amassed 12 goals in their previous 5 meetings against the Cherries and would want to replicate their performance from the 4-0 victory the last time the two sides locked horns.
