City XI: Caballero, Sagna, Sterling, Kolarov, De Bruyne, Sane, Silva (c), Stones, Fernandinho, G Jesus, Toure
Subs: Bravo, Kompany, Fernando, Nolito, Aguero, Delph, Otamendi
It’s always an intriguing task second guessing the formation and tactics, but it looks like City will set up in a four-one-four-one formation against the Cherries.
If that is the case Fernandinho should feature at right-full back, with Bacary Sagna taking up a central defensive role alongside John Stones. Aleks Kolarov would shift over to the left.
Yaya Toure has been occupying the sitting midfield role, behind a fluid four of Raheem Sterling, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane. Jesus, who has scored three in his last two games, should spearhead the attack.
Bournemouth XI: Boruc, Smith, Francis (C), Cook, Daniels, Surman, Arter, Wilshere, Ibe, Fraser, King.
Subs: Allsop, Mings, Smith, Gosling, Pugh, Stanislas, Afobe.
