Team News

Man City
Bournemouth
  • Kevin De Bruyne is sidelined until later this year, yet is City's only confirmed injury.
  • Manuel Akanji can now return to action, having served a one-match suspension.
  • The visitors will be without as many as six players for the trip to Manchester.
  • Andrei Radu is set to deputise for the injured Neto once again.
  • Alex Scott should keep his place in the side, having impressed so far.

Prediction

  • Manchester City cruised to victory in last weekend's Manchester derby at Old Trafford, and have now won their last three matches in all competitions.
  • City's return to form has coincided with Rodri's return from suspension, and Pep Guardiola's side have won every match the Spaniard has started so far this season.
  • Bournemouth finally picked up their first win in the Premier League this season when they came from behind to beat Burnley last weekend.
  • The Cherries were, however knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Liverpool in midweek, and could be set for a similar result here.
  • The hosts should comfortably take the points here.
