Bournemouth

Last updated: Sun 25 August 2019 06:28
In Brief

Making solid start to season. Francis, Gosling and Brooks sidelined. Kelly, Stanislas, Lewis Cook and Danjuma also remain out. Ibe close to leaving.

Looking Back

Bournemouth recorded first win on visit to Aston Villa when edging their aggressive hosts 2:1. Can’t say display was hugely impressive though, with Cherries riding luck for most of this match.

Last season lost 10 of 12 matches vs. the ‘Big 6’, but in spring able to achieve home wins vs. both Tottenham and Chelsea.

Looking Ahead

Coach Howe continues to work with seriously limited resources - Francis, Gosling and Brooks long-term absentees + 4 others also sidelined.

Young winger Wilson celebrated his debut last weekend with a goal and this might keep him in starting XI.

After great pre-season Ibe ignored in first 2 rounds and young winger traveled to Scotland on Thursday, with likely transfer to Celtic close.

Points of Interest

Lost ALL of 8 previous Premier League clashes between sides!

Manchester City

Last updated: Sun 25 August 2019 06:30
In Brief

Dropped first points last weekend, but continue to score goals at will. Sane and Mendy sidelined. Stones also remains out.

Looking Back

City held to frustrating 2:2 home draw vs. Tottenham, with VAR not helping Guardiola’s men when it should have.

Despite dropping points as soon as round 2 displays so far very impressive and continue to score goals by the bucketful. De Bruyne hungry to shine and already with 3 assists.

Looking Ahead

Coach Guardiola known for his rotation policy, which could now mean likes of Fernanindho and Mahrez given chance from the off. Latter scored only goal in this fixture last season.

Sane and Mendy sidelined, also Stones set to miss second consecutive game. Cancelo could make debut this weekend.

Points of Interest

Sterling has scored in 2 of last 3 away matches vs. Bournemouth, including stoppage-time winner back in 2017.

Manager Comments

On Cancelo's role: "We think about him as a full-back because Kyle Walker cannot play every three days. It’s impossible."
