PREDICTION
Bournemouth have played relatively well against some of the big boys in the league season and competed well but this is a tough ask for them at the Etihad. City are relentless right now and expect them to be winning at both half-time and full-time as they rack up another victory.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The first Premier League meeting between these two teams would be one to forget for Bournemouth as they travelled to the Etihad and were given a harsh dose of top flight reality. Manchester City would stroll to victory thanks to a 5-1 home win and Raheem Sterling would go home with the match ball after scoring a hat-trick.
