A young Manchester City host Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday night. Given the Citizens injury list and fixture pile-up, it is looking increasingly possible that Bournemouth can get a positive result in this clash.

Manchester City Form

Manchester City have only played once this season after getting the first week of the Premier League off. 

They impressed in that outing as they defeated Wolves 3-1 away from home. Kevin de Bruyne, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus all found the back of the net.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he will have to play this match with a lot of youngsters. The season is very cramped for fixtures and City have a number of key injuries to deal with.

Manchester City News

Centre-back Eric Garcia, midfielder Bernardo Silva and left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko are all missing through injury. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has already said that he is likely to make wholesale changes for this clash. 

Ilkay Gundogan tested positive for COVID-19 so is unavailable while centre-back Aymeric Laporte and winger Riyad Mahrez are just returning from injury so are unlikely to be risked. Forward Sergio Aguero is also missing through injury.

Bournemouth Form

Bournemouth have started their season well after being relegated from the Premier League. 

The Cherries began the Championship with a 3-2 home victory over Blackburn before a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup, Bournemouth advancing on penalties.

In their last match Bournemouth got a credible 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough.
