The Citizens and The Cherries will clash at Vitality Stadium this Saturday.

Having secured a victory against Wolves last week, Bournemouth currently occupies the 17th position with only one point above West Ham, who are in 18th place. To avoid dropping back to the bottom three, they will have to earn some points against the reigning Premier League champions this weekend.

Manchester City‘s draw against Forest last week puts them two points behind Arsenal, who have a game in hand. To remain in contention for the title, they must avoid further point deductions. Furthermore, City drew 1-1 with Leipzig in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16.

Players to watch

Bournemouth: Marcus Tavernier

Having scored the winning goal against Wolves last week, the midfielder has now accumulated three goals and four assists for the club this season. Tavernier’s preference is to cut inside and attempt shots from a distance, making him a crucial player against City.

Manchester City: Erling Haaland

Having already scored 26 goals in the Premier League this season, the striker is eager to add more goals to his tally. Haaland will prove to be a challenging opponent for the home team’s defenders, as he will be difficult to contain.
