The injury absence of Sergio Aguero and David Silva is a big blow to Manchester City’s Chilean boss Manuel Pellegrini yet the league leaders, two points ahead of Arsenal, are still favourite to win on home ground.
Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth, Premier League’s newly promoted side have shown they can give enough fight in this top flight. So expect an entertaining clash because both the teams won just one of their three games before the international break. Pellegrini will be hoping for not to suffer any more injuries ahead of the Champions League visit of Sevilla.
Here are the starting lineups of both the teams:
Manchester City Starting XI –
Hart, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Mangala, Sagna, Fernandinho, Toure, Navas, De Bruyne, Sterling, Bony.
Manchester City Substitutes –
Caballero, Demichelis, Kompany, Fernando, Nasri, Roberts, Iheanacho
AFC Bournemouth Starting XI –
