Manchester City were able to secure a relatively routine win over Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon but before the game, certain supporters were concerned with one element of the team selection.
That happened to be the exclusion of Joao Cancelo who once again failed to earn a start during City’s win over the Cherries.
Cancelo started on the bench which led to a discussion on Twitter over why he wasn’t playing over Kyle Walker.
One supporter claimed that the right back must be getting tetchy whilst another responded by saying it was a shame the Portuguese wasn’t playing.
A further individual said he really needed to start adjusting to how the team plays. It was even claimed that Cancelo’s debut would never happen.

Walker has so far started in each of City’s opening three matches so Cancelo will likely have to wait a little bit longer for a start.
Here’s some of the reaction from social media.
Mahrez and Cancelo should have started https://t.co/mRISwLjc5D

No Cancelo either. Poor lad must be getting tetchy

why isn’t Pep starting Cancelo? Rest of the team is made for breaking down a deep block

Please let’s give cancelo a chance when playing against smaller team like the one we have today … he really needs to start adjusting in the team

What does Cancelo have to do to start a game or even appear

Can we not just see Cancelo play yet

No Fernandinho or Rodri. This is a formation set up to score goals plain and simple. Shame not to see Cancelo yet. @StevenMcinerney

This Cancelo debut might not even happen at all
