Man City team news vs Bournemouth: Predicted line up – Will Sergio Aguero play? ! News

Pep Guardiola may opt to rest Sergio Aguero for Manchester City’s meeting with Bournemouth as he protects his squad ahead of the Premier League run-in Aguero has 11 goals in his last nine games, including the winner against West Ham in midweek, but has looked exhausted of late and is in desperate need of a rest

Injury to Gabriel Jesus has prevented Guardiola from rotating his star striker but now the Brazilian youngster is available once more and could come straight back into the starting XI Jesus has not featured since suffering a hamstring injury in the FA Cup win over Newport County but his return would ease the pressure on Aguero, who has started three games in eight days Raheem Sterling is also another option for Guardiola in attack, with the England winger potentially deployed in a central role after starting on the bench against West Ham Bernardo Silva and Kyle Walker were also substitutes against the Hammers and should come back into the side as City look to keep their starting XI fresh Rotation is highly likely due to a Premier League clash with Watford, the Champions League meeting with Schalke and the FA Cup quarter-final against Swansea all taking place within a fortnight of today’s game

City have been boosted by the return from injury of John Stones and Fabian Delph is back in training but Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte are still sidelined Therefore Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi are most likely to be the centre-back pairing – particularly considering Otamendi’s European suspension – while Oleksandr Zinchenko should continue on the left Walker will replace Danilo at right-back but the Brazilian could find himself shifted to midfield in an attempt to cover for the absent Fernandinho Ilkay Gundogan is another option for Guardiola while Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva should start once more Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez will have to be content with a place on the bench while Benjamin Mendy is fit again but will also be named among the substitutes

Manchester City predicted line-up vs Bournemouth – Premier League (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Zinchenko; Gundogan, De Bruyne, D Silva; B Silva, Sterling, Jesus
