Man City predicted lineup vs Bournemouth - Premier League

Logo: 90min


GK: Ederson - The only time Ederson hasn't faced a single shot (on target or otherwise) in a Premier League match was against Bournemouth in March 2019.RB: Kyle Walker - Playing as an outrageously inverted fullback against West Ham last weekend, Walker had more touches in the centre circle (nine), than two of his side's nominal central midfielders - Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan - put together (three).CB: Ruben Dias - Picked up the nickname "The Bodyguard" during his time at Benfica but didn't offer much protection when his goalkeeper got a black eye within minutes of the new season last weekend.CB: Nathan Ake - Bournemouth made a £20m profit when they sold Ake to City two years ago after the Dutch defender racked up triple digits for appearances and double digits for goals.LB: Joao Cancelo - His teammate Erling Haaland may lead the early scoring charts with a brace but Cancelo tops the stat that really counts with an unrivalled two nutmegs from the opening weekend.CM: Kevin De Bruyne - The Belgian succinctly summarised City's opening day victory when he took to Instagram to write: "Premier League, welcome to Erling Haaland." CM: Rodri - During his first year of regular first-team football, Rodri lived in the University of Castellon's halls of residence. With a degree in business administration since acquired, he hasn't had to bunk up at Manchester Met.CM: Ilkay Gundogan - On his Premier League debut six years ago, Gundogan got off to a goalscoring start against Bournemouth.RW: Riyad Mahrez - 24 goals across all competitions last term was the most of any City player and the highest seasonal tally in Mahrez's career.ST: Erling Haaland - City's goal-greedy new arrival wasn't even born the last time Bournemouth avoided defeat to the Sky Blues.LW: Phil Foden - Up against what may be a back-five, Guardiola often opts to play Foden on his natural left wing, stretching the opposition's low-block rearguard laterally.
