Man City could concede while popping Cherries
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

Benjamin Mendy (knee) and John Stones (hamstring) are out and Vincent Kompany (muscle strain) is a doubt.
Harry Arter (calf) is a doubt and Jermain Defoe (ankle) has joined Tyrone Mings (back) and Brad Smith (hip) on the sidelines.
Manchester City have not kept a clean sheet in their last four Premier League home games.
