With City's dominating history against Scott Parkers' side, Fantasy Football managers will be looking to start Erling Haaland in City's first home game of the season against Bournemouth. Bournemouth have never defeated Saturday's opposition in league play in the club's history, and Pep Guardiola's reigning champions have won all 10 Premier League encounters between the teams. A win away at City won't be on too many accumulators, but the visitors can cause problems for the hosts. The Cherries got off to a winning start last weekend with a 2-0 victory over Villa at the Vitality Stadium.
News and injuries for the Manchester City vs. Bournemouth matchup
On Saturday, Guardiola can choose from his whole roster, with the exception of Aymeric Laporte, who will be sidelined until at least September due to injury. There have been rumors that Bernardo Silva will be joining Barcelona, thus he may decide to skip this match.
The visitors are still without Joe Rothwell and Ryan Fredericks, both of whom joined Bournemouth in the summer, while David Brooks is still making a full recovery from Hodgkin lymphoma.

As always, you can follow all the excitement from the Etihad right here on AS USA. An hour before kickoff, we'll start our live-text analysis of Manchester City vs. Bournemouth.
City's firepower is simply too great for Bournemouth to handle, therefore the visitors will be playing it safe. To prevent a thrashing, Parker will likely stack the midfield and send out wing backs to try to hit on the break. With only Kieffer Moore up top, the home defense shouldn't have too much issue containing City, so a 3-0 victory seems about right.
