Man City vs Bournemouth – Confirmed Lineups: Guardiola Drops Star Man

Manchester City take on Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium hoping to build upon their best ever winning streak in Premier League history.

Pep Guardiola’s side will be looking to make it 17 Premier League victories in succession.

David Silva and Vincent Kompany have returned to the starting lineup against the Cherries.

Silva had missed City’s last two games due to personal reasons, but he starts the final home game of 2017.

The Spanish attacking midfield replaced Ilkay Gundogan who had started City’s last two games.

Gundogan scored his first Premier League goal of the season in his first Premier League start of the season in the 4-1 win over Tottenham.

The midfielder of Turkish origin also provided an assist in the Carabao Cup triumph over Leicester City.

Gundogan was been relegated to the bench for the Bournemouth clash.

Team captain captain Kompany is also back after recovering from a muscular issue that forced him off at half-time in the Manchester derby a fortnight ago.

John Stones will miss the game as will Benjamin Mendy who remains sidelined with a knee ligament injury.
