Key Players

Anthony Martial scored twice against West Ham midweek and the Frenchman’s performances in his maiden Premier League season have been one of very few positives from the 2015/16 campaign. Attackers Anthony Martial, Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford will look to link up against a Bournemouth side who have won just one of their last seven Premier League matches.

Belgian winger Kevin De Bruyne has been superb since returning from injury and may have to be at his very best to help Manuel Pellegrini beat a Swansea team who have comfortably beaten Liverpool and West Ham in their last two outings. Sergio Aguero leads the line and Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala are paired at centre back in captain Vincent Kompany’s continued absence.
