Manchester City face off with Bournemouth at 3 pm UK time on Saturday.
Manchester City head into their match with Bournemouth at the Etihad as major favourites.
Manchester City and Bournemouth have faced off 17 times. The Manchester outfit have won 15 of those games, drawing the remaining two.
Bournemouth have also not scored more than one goal against Manchester City since May 1989.
Bournemouth, though, may be boosted by their 2-0 win over Aston Villa on the opening weekend.
Ahead of the tie, Kieffer Moore, who scored in the Cherries’ 2-0 win over Aston Villa last weekend, has been discussing Erling Haaland:
“I have seen a lot of him throughout his career at Dortmund, and he is an exciting player. I think he needed that first goal to get going and he looked good after that,” Moore said.
“I think he is very well equipped for it, he is quick, he is strong, he is intelligent. It could work really well for him, especially with him being in such a good team at Man City as well.”
Elsewhere, Bournemouth boss Scott Parker discussed the difficulties of facing a side like Man City:
“However you set up against them, they quickly change their structure and the way they play,” he said.
“There’s a challenge there, of course there is. There’s no denying that for us to go and get anything out of this game, we’re going to need to be 11 players that are eight, nine out of ten.
“We’ll need to ride our luck in certain moments, and we’re going to have to give over probably one of the biggest, hardest performances we’ve ever given.
“I speak for myself and every other manager not in the top four or five, they probably know exactly the same thing. It’s going to be no different for us. That’s the plan, really.”
