Manchester City vs Bournemouth 23 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Manchester City will be at home this weekend as they host Bournemouth in the next game of the English Premier League. This should be another easy game for the Sky Blues and as a result, I am expecting another strong performance from the league leaders.

Bournemouth are in a relegation battle and due to good performances from other teams at the lower end of the table, they are desperate to get some points. This side has been lacking goals and although the likes of Defoe are scoring, it is not enough at the moment. This will be the toughest game of the season for the Cherries and I think it might be a little too much to expect even a draw from this side.

Manchester City are yet to lose and with half of the season almost complete, it is looking very optimistic for the club and the fans of Manchester City. David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne have managed to control every game that they have played and although things will get harder for them in the Champions League, it is very unlikely they will be challenged in this game.

With all that in mind, I am going predict that Manchester City will win this game which is not a very bold prediction. We are getting a very poor price on this bet and as a result, I think we should avoid it. The best bet is the over 2.5 goals in my opinion. Manchester City has a very dangerous attacking force and they should be able to score 3 or more goals on their own. Due to this reason, I think this bet gets home easily.
