In the English Premier League, Bournemouth will play Manchester City at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday, February 25. Bournemouth enters this match having defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers, led by Julen Lopetegui, 1-0 in the league. Bournemouth’s victory was secured by midfielder Marcus Tavernier’s goal in the second half.
In contrast, Manchester City’s most recent league match against Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest ended in a 1-1 draw. Chris Wood, a New Zealand international, scored late in the second half to eliminate Manchester City’s first-half goal, which was scored by Portuguese midfielder Bernardo Silva for Nottingham Forest.
Bournemouth is one point behind West Ham United, which is in 18th place in the league, at the moment. In January, they added players like Hamed Traore, Dango Ouattara, Illya Zabarnyi, and Antoine Semenyo to their roster. After a quiet summer transfer window, it was much needed.
Bournemouth has only won one of their last five league games, and manager Gary O’Neil, who was named permanent manager after serving as interim manager, faces a difficult task in integrating the new players as quickly as possible and getting the team back on track.
On the other hand, Manchester City is currently in second place in the league, two points behind league leaders Arsenal, who have a game in hand. Despite Erling Haaland’s incredible goal-scoring habit, their performances have been inconsistent this season.
In January, they sent fullback Joao Cancelo to Bayern Munich, which caught many by surprise. Cancelo, who is considered to be one of the world’s best fullbacks, was seen as an essential component of Guardiola’s Manchester City system. There are indications that Manchester City may be aiming for rebuilding this summer, and it has been suggested that Cancelo’s relationship with Guardiola was fractured.
Prediction: Bournemouth 0-3 Manchester City
Manchester City has won all 12 head-to-head matches between the two teams. Manchester City’s Norwegian striker Erling Haaland has scored 30 goals in 22 league appearances. Manchester City’s Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has scored 16 goals in 21 league appearances. This season, Manchester City attacker Phil Foden has made 14 league starts and contributed 10 goals. Kieffer Moore, a Wales international, has scored four league goals for Bournemouth this season.
The attacker intentionally joins Lewis Cook (knee), David Brooks (thigh), Lloyd Kelly (calf), and Illia Zabarnyi (ankle) in the medicine space. Jordan Zemura (knock) and Junior Stanislas (muscle) are little distrust and intention live considered previous to kickoff. Bournemouth will be without the match-winner Tavernier from last weekend due to a hamstring injury.
Jaidon Anthony will play on the left flank in Tavernier’s absence, and Solanke will likely continue to play in the center of the field ahead of Kieffer Moore and Antoine Semenyo. Jack Stephens hopes to start his third consecutive game at center back ahead of Chris Mepham, so O’Neil won’t make many other lineup adjustments. John Stones (hamstring) and Aymeric Laporte (illness) are expected to miss the Man City game, but Guardiola has said that Kevin De Bruyne could play on Saturday if he recovers from his illness.
