"Manchester city""Manchester City", perhaps this season is one of the best teams in Europe. "Townspeople" confidently reached the playoffs of the Champions League, where they got into the rivals completely passable "Basel". In the championship, the team of Josep Guardiola continues to update the national records.
In the final round, Manchester City played with not the last team of the Premier League - Tottenham, and defeated the Spurs in their own arena with a score of 4: 1, as we expected. The only match in which the Guardiola wards lost points in the championship, took place in the second round, and ended in a draw with Everton - 1: 1. Since then, "Manchester City" has won in the national championship of 16 consecutive matches, which is a new record of England. And the effectiveness of "citizens" show enviable.

At the moment, "Manchester City" feels comfortable at the top of the standings, ahead of the second "Manchester United" is already 11 points.
In the infirmary, the "citizens" have two defenders - John Stones and Benjamin Mendy. It is unclear whether Vincent Kompani, Elyakim Mangala and David Silva will appear on the field.
Bournemouth"Bournemouth" has to fight in this championship for a residence permit in an elite division. At the moment "cherries" go to 16 positions in the standings, and in case of defeat in the nearest meeting with "citizens" may well be in the relegation zone. The penultimate "West Brom" team Eddie Howe is two points ahead, and the 18th "Newcastle" only one point.
The last segment of the season, "Bournemouth" obviously did not ask, which makes it possible to assume about the game crisis. In the last six rounds, the "cherries" scored points mostly with the same losers.
