AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester City live stream 2017. Match Preview: AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester City – Premier League Matchweek 3
The Premier League’s first fixture on offer for Matchweek 3 features a true David vs Goliath scenario as underdogs AFC Bournemouth take on the tycoon-backed Manchester City. It is well worth noting that the Citizens are undefeated against the Cherries in their last five fixtures, with the blue giants of Manchester winning their last four matches against Eddie Howe’s men. Can Bournemouth finally find victory against the Blues. Manchester City are still missing their midfield generals Benjamin Mendy and Ilkay Gundogan, while defender Kyle Walker is out as he is serving a red-card match ban.
Bournemouth will face Manchester City on Saturday after managing to post their first positive result of the season on Tuesday as they beat Birmingham 2-1 in their League Cup tie. Their Premier League performances have looked distinctly below par, making Saturday’s encounter all the more daunting. After losing against West Brom and Watford, they will now face a tougher test in Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s squad had a largely disappointing season last year as they failed to make a strong challenge for the Premier League title. Things seem different this time, and this match will provide a good chance to pick three crucial points. Benjamin Mendy’s knee injury will be assessed by the City medical staff, and could feature if all goes well.
