Manchester City travel to the South Coast to face a competitive Bournemouth side under Eddie Howe. They have started well this season and will always be dangerous with the likes of Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson.

This fixture has always been tough for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City, most remembered for a late Raheem Sterling winner at the Vitality Stadium, in the 100-point title-winning season.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that John Stones, Leroy Sane and Benjamin Mendy are all unfit for Sunday. However, he has the majority of his squad, at his disposal.
