Manchester City Predicted Line Up vs AFC Bournemouth- Defence
In goal, we can expect Ederson to start with new signing Nathan Ake and John Stones in defence. Ederson has been really important for City in Pep’s style of play. The goalkeeper has done really well but has made an error or two last season, which is unlike him. City will want their defence to be strong but currently have limited options with Aymeric Laporte out of the squad for testing positive for coronavirus.
Kyle Walker will play his natural position at right-back. Benjamin Mendy will be playing at left-back.
Manchester City Line Up vs AFC Bournemouth – Midfield
A three-man midfield with Rodrigo and PFA Player of the Year Kevin de Bruyne and Fernandinho can be expected. Fernandinho has been Pep’s jack of all trades this season.
Manchester City Predicted Line Up vs AFC Bournemouth – Attack
In the wings, we can expect Bernado Silva to make a late appearance while Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden fill both the opposite flanks. Gabriel Jesus should lead the line with Kun Aguero out injured until November of this year.
