MCI vs BOU Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The reigning English Champions Manchester City will be at home when they host Bournemouth in the Premier League at Etihad Stadium, in Manchester, tomorrow on Saturday evening (IST).
With Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea all playing on Sunday, it’s a chance for Manchester City to extend their lead at the top and put some psychological pressure over their rivals ahead of their difficult fixtures.
Pep Guardiola’s team were not at their fluid best in Europe in the weekdays, and that’s what the former Barcelona manager keeps saying that the Champions League is where his team struggles to match the intensity as well as the quality of the opponents.
However, the 2-2 draw at Groupama Stadium against Lyon was enough for the Cityzens to secure a place in the last-16. The defending English Champions also extended their unbeaten streak to 14 games in all competition, with 12 of those ending in victories.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, are struggling for form at this moment and are coming into this match on the back of three straight defeats in the Premier League. It’s not the momentum a manager would like to take to the Etihad Stadium to face Pep’s formidable City.
But there’s no denying that the manager Eddie Howe has done a magnificent job with the team this season as well. For a club, whose summer expenditure may not even match the weekly wages of some top clubs in Europe, keeping them in the Premier League is a job most manager may fail in. Also, the Cherries have already accumulated 20 points from the first 13 games, and had it not for the last three losses, they could have been in the top-five.
Also, the current run is perhaps the toughest they would be facing all season. It started with the 1-2 home loss against Manchester United and they faced Arsenal in the last match, will be facing Manchester City in the next, while doubleheaders against Chelsea and Liverpool will also be played in the next five.

MCI vs BOU Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
It’s easy to pick the side when Manchester City are playing because they hardly give the ball to the opponents in the Premier League.
We have flooded both our teams with the home team’s players.
Aguero will be the captain and Wilson will be playing alongside him. The Bournemouth striker has been a revelation of sorts this season.
Here attack remains same, as is our captain. Raheem Sterling comes in to replace Riyad Mahrez and the former Liverpool playmaker will be our vice-captain as well.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Bournemouth may have accumulated more points than expected at this stage of the season, but a match against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium will be too much for the away side.
A home win is our call.
