City are back in action today to take on newly promoted Bournemouth. In what is evolving to be a fight for the top 4, no match can be taken lightly at this stage. Eddie Howe has his side playing good football this season as well, as the Cherries sit in 13th place and will be safe from relegation despite low odds coming into the year. They'll be up for this one and the Vitality Stadium will be loud. Earlier this season, City defeated Bournemouth 5-1 off a hat trick from Raheem Sterling and a brace from Wilfried Bony.

KDB is back! He's in the starting XI, and Samir Nasri makes his return from the bench. Both very welcome sights in my eyes. It's also worth noting that City's official twitter has listed Silva as being on the left and De Bruyne as being in the middle, but we'll see if that holds up during the match. Given current injuries, this seems about our strongest possible lineup.
