Manchester City will entertain Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to earn maximum points at home in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s men managed to earn a 3-0 win away at Manchester United last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.
Pep Guardiola will set his men up in a 3-2-2-3 formation and could be inclined to name a strong team for this clash. Manuel Akanji and Jeremy Doku will play from the start of this game against the Cherries.
3-2-2-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face Bournemouth
Ederson will operate in goal for Man City after securing a clean sheet in his last league outing. Kyle Walker, Manuel Akanji and Josko Gvardiol will make up Guardiola’s back three as they try to keep things solid at the back during the game.
Ruben Dias will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
John Stones and Rodri will anchor the midfield for the home side as they look to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park.
Bernardo Silva and Julian Alvarez will play just ahead of them as part of Guardiola’s attack. Both of them would have to carry most of the creative burden for the Mancunian giants in the final third.
Mateo Kovacic, Matheus Nunes and Kalvin Phillips will make up the numbers on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the second half if needed.
Jeremy Doku will hope to put his pace to good use on the left flank while Phil Foden tries to make a difference on the right flank.
Erling Haaland will spearhead Man City’s attack up top. The Norwegian striker managed to score a brace in the Manchester derby which will keep him in high spirits ahead of this game.
