Defending Carabao Cup champions Man City embark on their campaign to win this tournament for a fourth year running. Will they win on Thursday or be handed an upset by the Cherries? Live Soccer TV's preview gives you match facts, team news, and global broadcast listings for Man City vs Bournemouth.

Man City vs Bournemouth – Preview 

Man City kicked off their 2020/21 season on Monday with a trip to Wolves but will now shift focus to the Carabao Cup for their second fixture of the campaign. Their opponents are none other than Bournemouth, the English side relegated from the Premier League last season. It will be interesting to see who Guardiola field and how his team will fare against the Cherries given their performance earlier this week.

De Bruyne and Co. won their recent trip to the Molineux Stadium 3-1. The club's Belgian midfield maestro took center-stage, scoring once and playing crucial roles in the other two goals to help his team earn all three points in what was a difficult ground. The no.17 picked up right where he left off for the club but one thing was noticeable in Monday's game: Man City's defensive issues remain despite the addition of Nathan Ake.

Of course, things take time to gel. Speaking of the former Bournemouth defender, it will be interesting to see whether he features or not. Pep has promised to rotate his squad for this tie and for obvious reasons. The 2020/21 campaign looks to be one of the most grueling seasons in recent memory due to the shortened summer break. The Citizens' key players will need rest whenever possible and this is a perfect opportunity.

It should also be noted that their next game is a crucial league clash with Leicester City. Victory over Bournemouth is expected but failure to do that will hurt the Citizens' confidence ahead of their showdown with the Foxes.

Team news

Man City: As mentioned above, Guardiola is likely to rest several players for this game. This could include Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne. Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte could feature, however, as they are in need of minutes to build up their fitness, having recently recovered from the coronavirus. Gundogan, however, remains unavailable due to COVID-19. Joao Cancelo, Sergio Aguero, Bernanrdo Silva, Eric Garcia, and Oleksandr Zinchenko have all been ruled out.

Bournemouth: Junior Stanislas  could feature in this tie as his absence from their recent clash with Middlesbrough was described as "nothing serious". Unlike City, the Cherries look to name a strong XI.

Key stats

  • Man City have won 17 of their last 18 Carabao Cup ties.

  • That sole defeat was a loss in the second leg of last season's semi-final clash with Man United. The Citizens progressed to the final nonetheless en route to their third straight League Cup crown.

  • This will be the very-first meeting between these two clubs in the Carabao Cup.

  • The Cherries have lost their last 10 encounters with Man City by a whopping 30-5 aggregate.
