Man City v Bournemouth : What time does the match kickoff?
The match kicks off at 19:45 at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester on Thursday 24th September 2020.
The Citizens are looking to win the competition for an astonishing fourth successive season. Only one side has ever managed that feat in the competition’s history: Liverpool in the early 1980’s. Incidentally, City are currently one behind Liverpool’s record tally of eight League Cup titles, so there’s plenty for Pep Guardiola’s side to play for in this season’s competition.
They’re 4/9 to beat Bournemouth in 90 minutes, with the Cherries recording a first win in their entire history against City priced at 11/2. The draw is 4/1.
It’s rare to describe any odds-on price as generous, but I think the bookmakers may be under-estimating the amount of squad depth Guardiola has at his disposal.
While he has made it clear he will make a whole host of changes from Monday night’s victory at Wolverhampton Wanderers, seasoned internationals such as Riyad Mahrez, Aymeric Laporte, Nicolas Otamendi and Ferran Torres are still likely to start.
Sergio Aguero, Ilkay Gundogan, Joao Cancelo and Oleksander Zinchenko remain unavailable, however, with Bernardo Silva and Eric Garcia also injury doubts.

There’s every chance Jason Tindall will make several changes to his Bournemouth side, too, though, with his priority surely securing an instant return to the Premier League from the Championship.
The Cherries were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough at the weekend and host fellow relegated side – and potential promotion rivals – Norwich City on Sunday.
With this in mind, I think 5/4 on City to cover the -1 Handicap is a good price (Boylesports). Providing Guardiola doesn’t play eleven kids, and it’s more of a mix-and-match starting XI as expected,
I think they’ll have enough about them to beat Bournemouth by two or more goals.
They did so in seven of the 10 Premier League meetings between the sides in recent seasons, with two of the three single-goal wins coming at the Vitality Stadium.
In terms of potential anytime goalscorers, Mahrez has to be considered at 19/10 (Betway).
With Torres and potential debutant Liam Delap (son of former Stoke player Rory) likely to play alongside him in the front three, the Algeria winger will have plenty of responsibility on his shoulders to deliver the type of match-winning contribution we’ve regularly seen from him since his arrival in the Premier League with Leicester City.
For the visitors, Sam Surridge may receive the nod upfront having appeared as a substitute in his side’s first two league matches.
He’s 4/1 to score anytime (Betfair).
