Here is how Manchester City could lineup against Bournemouth in the Premier League clash.
Manchester City face a long trip down to the Southern Coast, as they prepare to take on Bournemouth in Vitality Stadium on Sunday. The Citizens have drawn one and lost one, while their opponents have the same record as well.
In the opening weekend of this season’s Premier League, Eddie Howe’s side was held by the newly-promoted Sheffield United in front of the home crowd. Their first victory of the season came against Aston Villa, away from home. The Cherries lead the game by two goals, before the hosts tried to script a comeback, which proved to be inadequate.
On the other hand, Pep Guardiola started the season to a flier with a rampant 5-0 victory over West Ham United on away roads, but their supreme start drew curtains after Mauricio Pochettino stood in the way of their opponents in the last weekend. The Citizens were held to a 2-2 draw in an exhilarating encounter.
Manchester City are utmost favourites in this game, but the hosts could spring a surprise because of their dominant forward line, which has an abundance of goals.
We shall look at Manchester City’s potential starting lineup for the game against Bournemouth.
Leroy Sane will be out for a majority of this season, owing down to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury. Benjamin Mendy is recovering his knee injury, and could be available shortly after the international break.
Going into this game, Pep Guardiola has nil suspensions.
Manchester City: Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker, Nicolas Otamendi, Aymeric Laporte, Angelino, Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero.
