Man City could concede while popping Cherries

Gabriel Jesus is in good form for City
1 of 1

Kick-off 3pm Saturday

After brushing aside Tottenham 4-1 last Sunday, Manchester City go into their last pre-Christmas fixture as red-hot favourites.

It seems highly unlikely that they will fail to defeat Bournemouth, but home supporters might not be treated to a vintage performance.

City have been saving their best for the bigger teams.

They conceded in recent wins over Huddersfield, Southampton and West Ham and may not achieve a shutout against the Cherries, who tend to play the same adventurous football whatever the stature  of their opponents.

Manchester City to win & both teams to score
