Key events

39 min: Foden has a go at goal with the free-kick, trying a left-footed curler … but it goes high and wide.

38 min: Stones wins a free-kick on the edge of the box, brought down by Cook after playing a one-two with Bernardo. The Bournemouth man gets a yellow.

37 min: Aké dances forward with the ball before Kovacic is felled in the centre circle.

35 min: Solanke is down in the City half after trying to hassle Kovacic off the ball. He picks himself back up but is limping quite a bit.

33 min: City play knockabout in the middle before Foden picks it up on the half-turn and drives forward … but Bournemouth hold their shape and force City into retreat.

30 min: That delicate lofted pass to set up Haaland for the City goal was from Kovacic, by the way. Gorgeous stuff.

29 min: Bournemouth have a free-kick out on the right after an Aké foul. Cook whips it into the box … and Ederson dives forward like Superman to punch away.

27 min: City continue to attack, with a Rodri shot blocked before Bernardo tries to coolly curl it into the bottom left corner … he’s not far away, shooting just wide.

GOAL! Bournemouth 0-1 Manchester City (Foden 24)

A chipped ball into the box finds Haaland’s run, who does brilliantly to turn and hold off the defender, launching his shot from the left. Neto saves, but Foden advances to tuck in the rebound with ease.

22 min: That yellow from a few minutes ago was for Bournemouth’s fitness coach apparently – just tell him to get down for 50 push-ups instead, I reckon (sorry, I know that’s dreadful).

20 min: Bernardo glides through the centre before sliding the ball into Haaland inside the box, but the forward can’t sort his feet out for the perfect first touch and the ball is bundled away.

19 min: Someone on the Bournemouth staff gets a yellow from the ref. Meanwhile, where it actually matters, Foden finds a bit of room to strike from outside the box, but his low left-footed drive finds Neto.

17 min: A very slick one-two between Stones and Rodri sets up a City move through the middle, but Haaland decides to pass when I expected him to try and shoot himself.

16 min: Neto launches a free-kick from just behind the halfway line for Bournemouth and Ederson just about collects, spilling on his first go before tidying up.

14 min: A ferocious sliding challenge from Adam Smith on Nunes by the halfway line – one of those lay-down-the-marker fouls. Welcome to the Vitality, kid.

12 min: Solanke plays a nice, chipped ball from the left to try and find Christie, running through from midfield, but Ederson reads it and lets it into the box before picking up.

10 min: Ederson is into action, tipping a fine effort from range over the bar to force a corner. The subsequent set-piece poses no danger to the City keeper.

9 min: The first big chance, and wasted by Haaland. It was set up beautifully by Foden, who laid off a long ball forward with one clinical touch, and Haaland was through for a shot on his right foot … which was blasted wide.

6 min: Bernardo feeds Nunes on the left who bursts down the touchline and into the box, but can’t muster much else.

5 min: Neto is the only man in his half as he launches a free-kick forward, but Akanji gets a head on it.

4 min: Kluivert brings down Foden after some tidy one-touch work from City.

3 min: City are quickly into their work, Rodri working around a tight press in his own half to feed Kovacic, who fails to get the killer ball through to Haaland.

1 min: Akanji starts on the right for City, with Stones already slotting into midfield.

Peep!

Bournemouth, in their red-and-black stripes, kick things off. City don the white tops. Let’s play!

Pep Guardiola says Kevin De Bruyne’s “not perfect” at the moment, but still fit enough to operate off the bench. The happier news is that Jack Grealish has returned ahead of schedule. Iraola says Lloyd Kelly felt a problem with his hip in training, explaining the defender’s absence for the hosts.

Those in and around Bournemouth have had a good day: Crystal Palace are now level with them on 28 points after their 3-0 win over Burnley, while Fulham are on 32 after a last-gasp win at Old Trafford.

Before we get properly going here, feel free to join Rob Smyth for the finish of the 3pm kick-offs.

For the first time this season in the Premier League, Julian Álvarez finds himself on the bench for Manchester City. He’s there alongside Kevin De Bruyne, who was an unused substitute against Brentford.

The teams

Bournemouth: Neto, Kerkez, Smith, Senesi, Zabarnyi, Cook, Christie, Tavernier, Kluivert, Semenyo, Solanke

Subs: Radu, Travers, Mepham, Kinsey-Wellings, Faivre, Scott, Ouattara, Sinisterra, Ünal

Manchester City: Ederson, Akanji, Stones, Dias, Aké, Rodri, Nunes, Kovacic, Bernardo, Foden, Haaland

Subs: Ortega, Walker, Grealish, Álvarez, Doku, De Bruyne, Gómez, Bobb, Lewis

Preamble

Hello, hello, hello and welcome to coverage of Manchester City’s visit to Bournemouth. With Liverpool busy trying to win their first gong of the season, City have a chance to narrow the gap between the top two to just a point. A trip to the Vitality, then, is one they’ll relish: they’ve never lost to Bournemouth, with the reverse fixture at the Etihad earlier in the season a Jérémy Doku-inspired 6-1 demolition. Andoni Iraola’s side, by the way, are still waiting for their first league win of 2024 – they’re up against history, old and new.

I’ll be here to take you through it all. Send in your thoughts, queries, title-race predictions, song requests, who you’re backing at the Oscars, whatever you fancy. Kick-off is at 5.30pm GMT.
