Team News:

Bournemouth followed their open day draw with Sheff Utd by beating another newly-promoted side in Aston Villa last weekend.
Eddie Howe reverted to a back four last week to bring Harry Wilson into the side and that paid off so he will likely retain that formation.
There is a good chance that Surman will come into the starting line-up for Billing who was somewhat lucky not to be sent off last week.
Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; Smith, S. Cook, Ake, Daniels; Surman, Lerma; H. Wilson, King, Fraser; C. Wilson

Unavailable: L. Cook (Injured), Francis (Injured), Gosling (Injured), Brooks (Injured), Kelly (Injured), Stanislas (Injured), Danjuma (Injured)

Doubtful: None


Man City dropped their first points of the season at home to Spurs last week but they were incredibly unlucky after dominating that game.
Pep Guardiola may be tempted to bring back veteran David Silva into the side ahead of Gundogan while Mahrez could also come back in.
Zinchenko came off with cramp last week but he should be fit to start although Joao Cancelo could be handed his debut at left-back.
Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Rodri, David Silva; Bernardo Silva, Aguero, Sterling

Unavailable: Mendy (Injured), Sane (Injured)

Doubtful: Zinchenko (Injured), Stones (Injured)


The worst thing that could have happened to Bournemouth ahead of this game was seeing Man City drop points last week. City will be fired up after letting two points slip in unfortunate circumstances, and they will come out fast against the Cherries where they can kill this game off early.
