Manchester City are looking to get their Premier League title defence back on track with a trip to the south coast to face Bournemouth.
Pep Guardiola’s side moved to the top of the standings with a 3-1 win over Arsenal last week, but immediately surrendered their lead when they were held to a draw by Nottingham Forest.
Two points now separate the top two sides heading into the weekend, although the Gunners have a game in hand over City.
The Citizens were held to a second 1-1 draw in a row in midweek, away to RB Leipzig in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 clash.
Bournemouth will now look to take advantage of City’s blip after beating Wolves last time out to move out of the relegation zone.
Gary O’Neil’s side have hit a decent run of form recently, picking up a win, two draws and one defeat in their last four outings and conceding three goals in that time.
Kick-off is at 5.30pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.
David Brooks, Ilia Zabarnyi, Junior Stanislas, Lewis Cook, Lloyd Kelly and Marcus Tavernier are out for the Cherries, while Jefferson Lerma and Jordan Zemura are doubtful.
Kevin De Bruyne has been out with illness for City recently, while Aymeric Laporte has struggled with a fever. John Stones is a long-term absentee.

Kick-off and channel
Bournemouth v Manchester City kick-off is at 5.30pm GMT on Saturday 25 February in the UK. The game is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League and the Sky Go app (opens in new tab).
In the US, kick-off time is 12.30pm ET / 9.30am PT. The match will be shown on NBC in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
