The first game of Week 3 of the 2017 EPL season is between Bournemouth and Manchester City. The game is obviously pretty one sided on paper although Bournemouth proved hard to beat at home last year.
When: Saturday, August 26, 9.30pm (AEST)
Where: Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth
Bournemouth will compete and they’ve this before and survived at the top level so you certainly shouldn’t write them off.
The Cherries though, will be up against a fired-up Man City who will be disappointed by the missed opportunities at home to Everton.
Despite the short turnaround for City, they won’t be vulnerable here.
They have a deep squad and to be able to challenge and be competitive every week which is the aim, the short turnaround and vulnerability would only be there if they were going to be pretenders rather than contenders.
Man City can bounce back in style as they continue to build on a good second half performance against Everton.
Man City will have to work and earn the result against the Cherries but the hunger and quality will be in sync which will be too strong to resist.
Bournemouth will need to perform well to keep confidence for the season but I see them losing a third straight here.
Bournemouth at $10.00
Draw at $5.50
Manchester City at $1.30
Tip: Manchester City at $1.30
Correct score: Manchester City 3-1
