Manchester City - Bournemouth: times, how to watch on TV, stream online in US/UK
All the info on how and where to watch as champions Manchester City host Bournemouth on matchday 2 of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
Manchester City host Bournemouth in their first home game of the season and Fantasy Football managers will be placing the captain’s armband on Erling Haaland for the visit of the newly promoted Cherries given City’s crushing record against Scott Parkers’ side: In 10 top-flight meetings between the sides, Pep Guardiola’s defending champions have won all 10 and Bournemouth have never beaten Saturday’s opposition in league competition throughout the club’s history. However, the Cherries got off to a winning start last weekend by beating Villa 2-0 at the Vitality Stadium and although a win away at City won’t be featuring on too many accumulators, the visitors can cause problems for the hosts.

Manchester City vs Bournemouth: AS prediction
City simply have too much firepower for Bournemouth to feasibly handle and the visitors’ expectations will be modest going into this one. Parker will probably set up to avoid a thrashing, stacking the midfield and deploying wing-backs to try and hit on the break. A lone striker in Kieffer Moore is unlikely to trouble the home defence unduly and City will likely run out comfortable winners with 3-0 sounding about right.
