Manchester City/Manchester City

Reason for tip

Man City led at the break and went on to win against West Ham last weekend and a Man City-Man City result in the half-time/full-time market was a winning bet in three of their final four home games last season. There is a gulf in quality in this fixture and City should have far too much quality for the promoted visitors, so they can take a first-half lead and go on to win the match.

Manchester City 5-0

Reason for tip

Manchester City kept a clean sheet at West Ham and limited them to just one shot on target.  Bournemouth scored twice against Aston Villa but those goals came from just three attempts on goal so the hosts should be able to keep a clean sheet.  City have a wealth of attacking talent and should win with plenty of room to spare so a 5-0 win for the hosts appeals.

Phil Foden To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Phil Foden had two shots in the Community Shield defeat to Liverpool and managed nine goals in 28 league games last season.  Erling Haaland, clearly, looks City’s most likely scorer but at a bigger price an anytime effort from Foden also appeals as he looks to get off the mark for the season.

Man City should brush aside Cherries

Manchester City opened up the new season with a routine 2-0 win at West Ham and should have far too much for promoted Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Cherries started the campaign as the favourites to be relegated but proved they can compete at the highest level with an impressive 2-0 win over Aston Villa in their own curtain raiser.

However, City are a completely different proposition and there is a real gulf in quality here, with the hosts as short as 1/20 to take all three points.

City can make strong start

Squeezing any kind of value out of this game is a tough ask and although I am expecting a convincing win for the hosts, a -3 handicap as a starting point in that market looks too big a risk.

Instead, the more modest price on a Man City-Man City result in the half-time/full-time market looks a good starting point. Pep Guardiola’s men were ahead at the break at West Ham last time out and will be looking to put on a show in their first home outing of the season.

Bournemouth defended well against Villa and will look to soak up pressure early on, but with the wealth of attacking talent within the City ranks they should be able to break the deadlock early on and take a lead into the break.

Haaland can fire City to big win

Erling Haaland was a pretty safe anytime scorer selection throughout his stay with former club Borussia Dortmund and that looks set to be the case at City as well after he hit a brace on his Premier League debut last weekend.

The Norwegian is a short price for an anytime effort and he might not be City’s only scorer on Saturday, so for an odds-against option Phil Foden has some appeal.

Foden didn’t actually manage a shot against West Ham but he did try his luck twice in the Community Shield defeat to Liverpool and after weighing in with nine goals in 28 league outings last season he will be eager to get off the mark on Saturday.

The Cherries only managed three shots on target against Villa last weekend and West Ham only managed one against City, as such it is hard to see the visitors scoring and with City boasting an array of attacking talent a 5-0 win for the hosts looks to have a chance in the correct score market.
