            The title race is hotting up and after a slip-up against Chelsea, Man City will be looking to bounce back with all three points against Bournemouth, with The Cherries aiming for another three points between them and the relegation zone.

            Bournemouth currently sit 13th in the Premier League after 24 games. The Cherries have seven wins, seven draws and ten losses, leaving them on 28 points, nine points above the relegation zone.

            The Cherries have been somewhat quiet in front of goal, especially in comparison to their top scorer. Bournemouth have scored 33 goals which is the 13th most in the league but Dominic Solanke has scored 14 goals, the third most in the league. Bournemouth have struggled defensively, conceding 46 goals in 25 games and keeping just five clean sheets.

            Manchester City, on the other hand, currently sit second in the Premier League. In 25 games, City have 17 wins, five draws and three losses which leaves them on 56 points, one behind top-of-the-league Liverpool - though Liverpool take on Luton Town at Anfield tonight and can extend their lead back to four points.

            City have been on it in front of the goal this season, scoring 58 in 25 games, giving them an average of 2.32 goals a game. In fact, their top scorer, Erling Haaland, has the most goals this season with 17. City also have a good defensive record, conceding 26 goals and keeping seven clean sheets.

            Bournemouth and Manchester City have met just 20 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1987. Manchester City have the better record in the fixture with 18 wins and Bournemouth failing to beat City on any occasion, the best result they’ve gotten being the two draws.

            Both of the draws in the fixture came back in 1989 and 1999, but in the last seven games in the fixture only two of the games have seen only one team on the scoresheet. The last three games also show that this fixture is a goal-fest, with over four goals in all three games.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Bournemouth have one win, three draws and one loss.

            In the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, Bournemouth hosted Championship side Swansea. Lloyd Kelly, Alex Scott, Luis Sinisterra, David Brooks and Solanke all scored in the 5 - 0 win for Bournemouth.

            Back in the Premier League, Bournemouth took on West Ham. Solanke was on the scoresheet again for Bournemouth, this time in the third minute. However, a penalty from James Ward-Prowse forced the 1 - 1 draw.

            It was another 1 - 1 draw for Bournemouth, this time against Nottingham Forest. Bournemouth was on the scoresheet early again, this time being Justin Kluivert who gave The Cherries the lead in the fifth minute. However, Callum Hudson-Odoi equalised on the stroke of halftime. Despite the red card to Philip Billing, Bournemouth held on for the 1 - 1 draw.

            Bobby De Cordova-Reid and Rodrigo Muniz both scored in the first half to give Fulham the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Marcos Senesi did get Bournemouth in the game but another goal from Muniz secured the 3 - 1 win for Fulham.

            The last time out for Bournemouth was against Newcastle. Solanke opened the scoring for The Cherries just minutes into the second half but a penalty from Anthony Gordon levelled the game. Antoine Semenyo regained the lead for Bournemouth but a 92nd minute goal from Matt Ritchie grabbed a 2 - 2 draw for Newcastle.

            In their last six games in all competitions, Manchester City have five wins and one draw.

            Julian Alvarez grabbed a brace in the first half to give Man City the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Rodri added a third just one minute into the second half and despite Ameen Al-Dakhil’s late goal, City secured the 3 - 1 win.

            Neal Maupay opened the scoring for Brentford but a hat-trick from Phil Foden grabbed a 3 - 1 win for Man City.

            After a goalless first half, Man City finally converted one of their 19 shots, with Haaland grabbing a brace in the 2 - 0 win over an Everton side who only managed one shot on target.

            In the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16, Man City took on Copenhagen. Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring in the tenth minute but Magnus Mattsson equalised before halftime. However, Bernardo Silva and Foden both scored in to give Man City the 3 - 1 win.

            The most recent outing for Man City was against Chelsea. Raheem Sterling gave Chelsea the lead against his old club just before halftime. However, Rodri popped up with a goal in the 83rd minute to force a 1 - 1 draw.

            On Tuesday night, Manchester City managed to earn a crucial 1-0 win over Brentford as Erling Haaland scored his 17th goal in 20 league matches in the 71st minute of the match.
