Remember Monday night kick-offs, Blues? It’s been a while, but tonight City are in the late night TV slot as they visit Dean Park to face Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth. City are in good form, on paper, with three wins on the trot, but performances are still uneven and they can take nothing for granted.
City have put 13 goals past Bournemouth in their past three fixtures, conceding only one, and we’d love to see more of the same tonight, but Bournemouth will be looking for their first points from City since returning to the Premier League.
Neil Swarbrick is tonight’s referee and here are the teams selected by Pep Guardiola and Eddie Howe:
Bournemouth XI: Boruc, A Smith, Francis, Cook, Daniels, Ibe, Arter, Surman, Fraser, Wilshere, King
Manchester City XI: Caballero, Sagna, Kolarov, Stones, Fernandinho, Touré, Sterling, Silva, De Bruyne, Sané, Gabriel Jesus
