Manchester City FC vs AFC Bournemouth – Match odds
City have dropped only four points this season and they have been rampant – without any signs of complacency – from the word go. Bournemouth might have been confident about getting a result at the Etihad Stadium a few weeks ago but their own form has suffered a major blip.

Our preview would go with a win for Manchester City.
Manchester City vs Bournemouth draw odds: 10.00
