Alex Scott keeps his place in the Bournemouth midfield, with Ionut Radu continuing in goal.
Pep Guardiola's Man City are the favorites to win the league again this year. They currently trail Tottenham in top spot by two points, but a win in this game would see them rise to the summit of the standings, at least temporarily.
City delivered an imperious performance last time out, easing past Man Utd 3-0 at Old Trafford. It was perhaps their most complete display of the season to date, as City shut out their opponents in defense and overwhelmed them going forward.
Bournemouth, meanwhile, finally picked up their first victory of the EPL season last weekend, coming from behind to beat Burnley 2-1. That will have come as a huge relief to under-fire manager Andoni Iraola, but the Cherries could come crashing back down to earth on Saturday.
Indeed, Man City will expect to come out on top without too much difficulty in this match. Bournemouth will need to deliver a huge performance to avoid defeat.
This promises to be an exciting duel, so make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action by checking out our full how to watch Premier League live streams hub.
