Goal Scorer:

Bournemouth are still having to cope without Tyler Adams, Max Aarons (both thigh), Ryan Fredericks (calf), James Hill (ankle) and Darren Randolph (illness), while Romain Faivre missed last weekend's trip to St James' Park through illness and is a doubt for the visit of Man City.

Philip Billing will serve the final game of his three-match suspension this weekend, so Ryan Christie and Lewis Cook could retain their places in midfield, as Alex Scott battles with Justin Kluivert for a start in the number 10 role.

Luis Sinisterra scored at the Etihad earlier this season and could replace either Marcus Tavernier or Semenyo on the flanks, while Solanke is set to lead the line and will be searching for his 15th league goal of the campaign.
Bournemouth possible starting lineup:
Neto; Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kelly; Christie, Cook; Semenyo, Kluivert, Sinisterra; Solanke

Manchester City
As for Man City, Jack Grealish (muscle) and Josko Gvardiol (ankle) are both set to remain sidelined with injuries, while Kevin De Bruyne will have his hamstring issue assessed ahead of kickoff after not being risked in midweek.

Guardiola may be tempted to stick with the same four-man defence after the Citizens kept just their third clean sheet in the last 15 league matches against Brentford, but Nathan Ake will be pushing to start against his former club along with academy graduate Rico Lewis.

Mateo Kovacic and Matheus Nunes will be hoping for a recall in centre-midfield, while Jeremy Doku – who scored one and provided four assists in the reverse fixture with the Cherries – could replace Oscar Bobb to start on the left flank.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Akanji, Ake; Rodri, Kovacic; Foden, Alvarez, Doku; Haaland

Prediction: Bournemouth 1-3 Manchester City
