AFCBournemouth and Manchester City meet at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday, 2ndMarch in a game that will be a true challenge for the hosts.
Bournemouth have not had the best run of results recently, but they have shown on numerous occasions that they can put up a spirited performance. Every game now counts for Manchester City and they are likely to be feeling some nerves.
Since defeating Chelsea 4 – 0 at the end of January, Bournemouth appear to be struggling and they are likely to tackle this match head on. Manchester City appear to be back to their best and they will be feeling confident after winning the EFL Cup last weekend.
Manchester City have won their last seven games against Bournemouth, most recently defeating them 3 – 1 in December last year. This record is sure to weigh on Bournemouth’s minds and it will just increase the pressure. Given this record, it seems that Bournemouth will have to hope that Manchester City are feeling the pressure of the title race and that this causes them to make some mistakes.
