Pep Guardiola is one manager who is under massive pressure to win something this season after spending over 300 million since taking over as City manager. City disposed off Brighton in the opening premier league game but they were not overly convincing while they struggled to breakdown Everton at Etihad Stadium last monday and it took a late defensive error for them to grab a point after Rooney had put Everton in lead. Things need to accelerate with this City squad otherwise they might be chasing the other title rivals so early in the season.
Bournemouth have been dealt a series of injuries to contend with over the Christmas period, with a number of players likely to miss the game against City.
Jermain Defoe (ankle) and Harry Arter (calf) came off during their mid-week Carabao Cup defeat to Chelsea and, while Arter could potentially feature, Defoe has been sent to a specialist.
Charlie Daniels is carrying an Achilles tendon injury and it is unclear whether he will be passed fit to play. Those individuals join Josh King, Brad Smith and Tyrone Mings on the sidelines.
Potential Bournemouth starting XI: Begovic; Francis, Cook, Ake; Fraser, A. Smith; Surman, Gosling, L. Cook; Mousset, Ibe.
