Manchester City dominated the Premier League and finished last season with a record 100 points and many expected them to struggle to near that level of performance in this campaign. However, Pep Guardiola’s side have looked even better this time as they are yet to taste defeat in the Premier League.
They have lost just one game in all competitions this season. Their 2-2 draw against Lyon in midweek means they have qualified for the Champions League knockout round, and they have also qualified for the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup.
Bournemouth have one of the most interesting stories about rising from the verge of administration to a Premier League side in less than 10 years.
The Dorset club reached the Premier League 4 seasons ago and they have grown from strength to strength. Eddie Howe’s side started this season brightly and even found themselves inside the top 6 at some point, but a run of successive defeats at the hands of Manchester United, Newcastle and Arsenal has brought them down the league table.
The Cherries would be going out to end their recent miserable run here, but that would be one of the hardest task ever against this Manchester City team.
