After a scintillating midweek win over Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Champions League, Manchester City’s attention returns to domestic matters today with the Blues hosting Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium.
Bournemouth had a hellish start to the season with two defeats, but their form has since stabilised with a draw against Crystal Palace and win over West Brom. They will be hoping for some tired legs in the City ranks as Pep Guardiola’s team look to make it eight wins out of eight in all competitions.
Jonathan Moss is this afternoon’s referee. The team sheets are out and here is how the two sides line up.
City XI: Bravo, Sagna, Otamendi, Kolarov, Clichy, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Sterling, Nolito, Iheanacho
Bournemouth XI: Boruc, Smith, Francis, Cook, Daniels, Arter, Surman, Stanislas, Wilshere, Ibe, King
