With Tottenham playing on Monday and Arsenal playing late against Newcastle, Manchester City has the chance to go back to the top of the Premier League table with a win against Bournemouth. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and live betting in the English top-flight league. Read our prediction and our Premier League bet predictions.
City Has Perfect Run at Home
After a couple of wobbles against Wolves and Arsenal, Manchester City looks back to its fearsome best. The Citizens produced one of their season’s best performances last Sunday with a stylish 3-0 romp past Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Successes over Man United and Brighton have put Man City back on track in their quest to win a record fourth successive Premier League title.
Pep Guardiola’s side has been unstoppable so far at home, and we expect them to extend their brilliant run of form on Saturday. They continue to dominate the ball. Their figures of 63% average possession and 89.8% passing accuracy are the highest in the division.
Manuel Akanji is available after sitting out the 3-0 win at Old Trafford through suspension. The Swiss could replace any of the back three as Guardiola never shies from rotating his defense.
Kevin de Bruyne remains out, so Bernardo Silva can be expected to run the midfield again from in and around Rodri and John Stones.
Bournemouth Winless on the Road
Bournemouth finally put three points on the board last weekend with a 2-1 win against fellow strugglers Burnley to earn their first league victory under Andoni Iraola and move out of the relegation places.
Bournemouth is currently in 17th place in the Premier League standings and has struggled this season. If you’re betting online, you shouldn’t back the visitors or bet on any soccer player props.
Just four days after beating Burnley, Bournemouth ended up on the wrong side of a 2-1 scoreline at the hands of Liverpool in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.
Lewis Cook will serve the second of his three-match suspension, while Neto, Tyler Adams, Ryan Fredericks and Emiliano Marcondes are all sidelined with injuries. Darren Randolph, meanwhile, is doubtful due to illness.
Man City Loves Playing Bournemouth
Man City has won all 12 Premier League home meetings with Bournemouth, the best record an English top-flight club has against an opponent, including a thumping 4-0 victory last season. Man City is unbeaten in their last 53 home league games against sides starting the day in the bottom four of the table.
Bournemouth is winless on the road, while Man City has won all 14 home league games in 2023. Both teams have scored in three of Bournemouth’s opening four Premier League away matches this season.

Manchester City vs Bournemouth Soccer Picks for Nov. 4
The Citizens enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -950 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Premier League odds, while the goal line is set at 3½.
Bournemouth appears out of their depth going into this clash at the Etihad. Man City has scored 12 goals in their last four home games and should have enough to score at least four goals on their own and take advantage of Bournemouth’s lack of defensive quality and struggles.
