PREM: Bournemouth v Manchester City preview


Bournemouth v Manchester City preview

Eddie Howe could be without three Bournemouth defenders when Manchester City visit the Vitality Stadium.


The Bournemouth boss has concerns over Simon Francis, Charlie Daniels and Adam Smith, with Francis and Daniels battling hamstring injuries.

Smith is also a doubt after missing last weekend's defeat at Everton, meaning Howe may be forced into a defensive reshuffle ahead of City's visit.
 
Pep Guardiola's side edged past Swansea thanks to Gabriel Jesus' double, and the Brazil international may again be preferred to Sergio Aguero in attack.

The visitors, who will take a break from league action to resume FA Cup and Champions League campaigns after their trip to the south coast, are looking to win four games in a row for the first time since September.
 
Aside from Bournemouth's defensive headache, the hosts will definitely be without Callum Wilson.

The striker underwent surgery on Thursday and remains sidelined for the rest of the season with a long-term knee injury.
 
Guardiola has a fully-fit Man City squad to choose from, and plans to make a call on his starting goalkeeper on the day of the match.

Willy Caballero has started City's last three games since replacing Claudio Bravo, keeping clean sheets in two.
