Manchester City vs Bournemouth – Carabao Cup – I see this Manchester City squad once again strong
Manchester City vs Bournemouth –even with Sane or Silva departures, but with good solutions to attack all competitions.
Of course most of the substitutes of Monday’s match against Wolves will be part of the starting eleven for this game, but we are talking about players of great quality and all of them would be regular starters at Bournemouth.
Bournemouth was relegated from the Premier League last year. They were having good seasons in the Premier League but last year they couldn’t resist and ended up relegated.
Bournemouth, especially at home, is a very difficult club to beat, always very fierce and practicing some good football. However, away from home they are not that strong.
This is in fact the least interesting competition for Manchester City, in an important season for them as they need to win the Premier League and the much desired Champions League.
That doesn’t mean they will want to leave this competition early as it will be useful for some new experiences and to offer some game rhythm to other players.
They want to attack the Championship since the beginning of the season to return once again to the Premier League. They won 4 points in 2 games, winning at home followed by a 1-1 draw away from their supporters in this past weekend.
In this Cup they beat Crystal Palace in the penalty shootout.
It took 24 penalties to find a winner.
Manchester City will have a lot of possession in this game, big territorial dominance and little by little will come closer, advancing, having their goal chances and I expect an advantage by Guardiola’s team already at half time.
Even if we see some changes, the tactical system will always be the same and almost all of the players have stayed from last year and are perfectly integrated and adapted.

Manchester City vs Bournemouth – Prediction:
Bournemouth will be an interesting opponent that may at times make Manchester City think and work the ball a little more, but in the end will prevail the highest individual and collective quality by the Premier League title contenders. I’m going strong on Manchester City’s victory at halftime.
