Bournemouth vs Man City LIVE: Confirmed line-ups and updates as Sergio Aguero starts | Football | Sport


Gabriel Jesus misses out with injury

Gabriel Jesus has not travelled with the squad to Dorset after sustaining a hamstring problem.

City have confirmed that it was picked up this week in training and he’s been receiving treatment back in Manchester.

They are hopeful he will be back to full fitness after the international break.

Guardiola is hardly short of options in attack though as Sergio Aguero leads the line despite last week’s bust-up with Pep.

How the teams line-up

Bournemouth

Ramsdale, Smith, Mepham, Cook (C), Daniels, Lerma, Ake, Billing, Fraser, King, Wilson.

Subs: Boric, Simpson, Rico, Surman, Wilson, Ibe, Solanke.

Man City 

Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Silva (C), De Bruyne, Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero

Subs: Bravo, Angelino, Rodrigo, Fernandinho, Mahrez, Cancelo, Foden.

Good afternoon

It’s a sunny afternoon on the south coast and the champions are in town looking to close the gap at the top of the Premier League.

Eddie Howe has not won a single point against City since bringing the Cherries up to the top flight, he will be looking to change that today.

Meanwhile Pep Guardiola’s side will be itching to get back out there after they were denied all three points against Tottenham last weekend by VAR.

International football returns after this round of action and both clubs will want to sign off with a positive result.
