The Catalan manager, who keeps on fighting for leading the Mancunian institution to the top of the Premier League, needs a win against the Cherries in their visit to the South of England and would be determined to do everything that is required to get it.

For this reason, despite being able to recover Mateo Kovacic and Jack Grealish for the game, he decided to send to the bench one of his stars, making several big changes in his lineup to compete for the title.

The only star whose presence was granted was Erling Haaland, who scored in the last game against Brentford and has already reached the 17 goals in the Premier League, having the intention of beating the mark and reaching the 20 goals as soon as possible in this season.
