STATS & FACTS
Last five head-to-head meetings - Manchester City W4, D1.

Manchester City have a 100% record in the Premier League over Bournemouth, winning all four previous encounters.

During that run of Premier League head-to-heads, Manchester City have scored 15 goals – 3.75 goals per game on average, while only conceding one.

Of all the teams that have scored against Bournemouth since they reached the top flight, The Cherries have shipped the most goals to Manchester City.

Surprisingly, just one of those 15 goals has been scored by Sergio Aguero. The Argentine found the net in the 4-0 win here back in April 2016.

The only player to score a Premier League goal against Manchester City for Bournemouth is Glenn Murray, who know plies his trade at Brighton.

Bournemouth have never beaten Manchester City in any of their 10 previous attempts, which spans back 30 years when the teams first met in December 1987. Of those 10 matches, Bournemouth have only managed two draws while losing the other eight.

Bournemouth are still looking for their first points of the season after suffering two defeats at the hands of Burnley and Watford, while they are still yet to score a goal this term.

MOST MEMORABLE MEETING
The last time these two teams met was back in February as Manchester City ran out 2-0 winners, although it was a night to forget for Gabriel Jesus as he limped off with a broken metatarsal after just 15 minutes.
