The 2017-18 Premier League season is still young but today Manchester City visit the south coast of England for the second time in three games as they take on Bournemouth.
The Blues have fared well against Eddie Howe’s side recently, winning the last four games 5-1, 4-0, 4-0, 2-0, and will hope for something similar today, especially as Bournemouth lost both of their opening games to Watford and West Brom.
Mike Dean takes charge of this lunchtime’s fixture and here are the starting XIs selected by Pep Guardiola and Eddie Howe – including a City debut for Benjamin Mendy and first full start for Bernardo Silva:
Bournemouth XI: Begovic, Cook, Gosling, Mings, Ake, Surman, Arter, Daniels, Smith, King, Defoe
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Danilo, Kompany, Otamendi, Mendy, Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva. David Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling, Gabriel Jesus
The match can be viewed on Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
