Manchester City





Manchester City have never lost to Bournemouth in a league game, winning seven and drawing two.
Bournemouth have lost all three of their Premier League games against Man City, scoring once and conceding 13 goals.
The Premier League record for goals scored by a club against an opponent in the first four games against them is Manchester United against Bradford City, who scored 17 goals against the Bantams between 1999 and 2001.
Bournemouth have conceded four or more goals in their last three top-flight games against the Citizens. The last team to do so in four consecutive top-flight games against an opponent was Watford against Everton between 1984 and 1985.
Bournemouth have lost all three of their Premier League games on a Monday without scoring a goal, while Man City have won 10 of their last 13 (L3) played on a Monday.
Raheem Sterling’s first Premier League hat-trick came against the Cherries in October 2015, helping City to a 5-1 victory at the Etihad. Indeed, Sterling has notched four goals in two Premier League games against them, averaging a goal every 42 minutes.
Gabriel Jesus has scored in both of his first two Premier League starts for Man City. The only players to score on their first three Premier League starts for the club are Emmanuel Adebayor (4 in 2009) and Kevin de Bruyne (3 in 2015).
Jesus is averaging a goal or assist every 47 minutes in his Premier League career so far, scoring three goals and assisting once in 188 minutes of action.
Bournemouth have conceded the most Premier League goals in 2017 (16), four more than any other side.
Although Man City have received the most red cards in the Premier League this season (4), all four have come in home games. Their last away dismissal in the top-flight came in November 2014 against Southampton, with Eliaqium Mangala sent off.
