Premier League: Manchester City vs AFC Bournemouth, HD Live Stream
After leading Bournemouth to victory in their Premier League debut last weekend, Andoni Iraola will have a very difficult challenge ahead of him when his team travels to the Etihad to take on Manchester City, the reigning European champions.
Iraola understood it was a must-win game despite the club’s public support prior to the match against Burnley, having watched the Cherries slip into the relegation zone following a subpar start to the season.
The legend of Athletic Bilbao will be hoping that his team can start moving up the Premier League table as they go into a more forgiving stretch of games following their matchup with City. The team duly triumphed 2-1, despite some controversy surrounding VAR.
Even the most hopeful of supporters won’t fancy Bournemouth’s prospects at the Etihad, though, as the champions made a statement last weekend by winning the derby at Old Trafford. Bournemouth lost to Liverpool in the League Cup midweek.
Erling Haaland scored twice in a 3-0 rout, fulfilling our man Mark’s prediction that he would lead a comfortable victory over Manchester United.
Following a setback in which they lost three straight domestic games, Manchester City is back to their best and will be able to challenge Arsenal and Tottenham for the Premier League title.
In their last 19 head-to-head encounters, Bournemouth has never defeated Manchester City and has only managed two draws. City easily won the previous season and has defeated the Cherries in their last 14 meetings. Bournemouth came calling, and the champions won 4-1 down the south coast after that, ending the match 4-0.
