Pep Guardiola is undecided on who Man City's goalkeeper will be for Bournemouth clash
Caballero has played in Manchester City’s last three matches, with Bravo losing his place after going through a difficult spell.
The Chile international – signed from Barcelona for £15.4m last August to replace Joe Hart as first choice – has not saved any of the last six shots on target he has faced.
It means he has not made a stop of any description for City since the 2-1 win over Burnley on January 2.
But Guardiola insists that he is still backing the 33-year-old, and that he has yet to decide who will play at the Vitality Stadium on Monday.
He said: “I don’t know. I will decide the day of the game.”

The City boss wanted Bravo because he felt the Chilean is better at playing out from the back than England international Hart, who was dropped at the start of the season and then sent out on loan to Torino.
Guardiola’s side have conceded 29 league goals this season, 12 more than leaders Chelsea and 11 more than second-placed Tottenham.
But he believes that Bravo’s style is well-suited to the way he wants City to play.
The manager added: “My opinion of Claudio remains the same. He is a top player, a top goalkeeper.
“Football here is different. There are more crosses, more special things to deal with, but of course he is a top, top goalkeeper. The decision I take is based on what I see. That is why I am here.”
Willy Caballero has started Manchester City's last three games
City, third in the table going into the weekend, have been top scorers in the Premier League for each of the last three seasons, and could yet win that honour again this time around.
They have 49 goals to their credit, three fewer than joint top-scorers Liverpool and Arsenal, and two short of Chelsea’s total.
Guardiola, though, has suggested that catching the tallies of those clubs does not concern him.
He said: “I am not concerned too much about that. We are not at the beginning of the season. We are in the last months of the season so I don’t think we are going to achieve.”
