Manchester City Vs Bournemouth Tips and Prediction
Erling Braut Haaland’s Premier League debut for Man City was everything Pep Guardiola wanted and more, perhaps garnering more attention to his amusing post-game interview in which he battled to contain the expletives.
The prolific Norwegian earned and scored a penalty in the game before latching onto Kevin De Bruyne’s superbly weighted pass in the second half and doing the rest to begin life in England with a brace.
The Citizens’ only loss from 22 games at the start of the season was a 5-2 victory against Leicester City in City’s opening Etihad match of 2020–21, although their recent home successes make for interesting reading.
There is reason for optimism for Haaland and danger for Bournemouth as the defending champions have won each of their previous four Premier League games at the Etihad and have scored at least two goals in each of their last eight outings.
For the Cherries, who have subsequently strengthened their defense with the attention-grabbing acquisitions of Neto and Marcos Senesi from Barcelona and Feyenoord respectively, maintaining that momentum at home against the champions would be a tough job indeed.
However, Parker is still searching for his first managerial victory versus City after four straight losses when in charge of Fulham. Bournemouth did finish the 2021–22 Championship season unbeaten in four away games, keeping clean sheets in three of them.
Manchester City were organized as always in their opening game against West Ham United beating then cleanly. We expect same result to be repeated against Bournemouth.
