AFC Bournemouth v Manchester United Match Preview
Bournemouth will be heading into this game hoping that they can cause another huge upset after getting what could be their greatest victory in the club’s history last week against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Bournemouth are currently on their best run in the league after taking five points from their previous three matches but they have another huge task on their hands here if they want to continue that run.
Manchester United are coming into this match after exiting the Champions League following a 3-2 defeat to Wolfsburg. United have undergone a lot of scrutiny with recent results and anything but a win here will only increase the pressure on a United side that are only three points off top of the table Leicester.
United are now win-less in their last four matches and if they fail to register a victory here, it will be the first time since 2004 that any United side have gone on a five game win-less streak in all competitions which is a record that Louis van Gaal will not want to hold.
AFC Bournemouth Latest Team News:
Bournemouth will most definitely be without Callum Wilson, Max Gradel, Tyrone Mings and Christian Atsu as they are all long-term absentees but they could also be missing any of these players Sylvain Distin, Adam Federici, Lee Tomlin and Marc Pugh as all have missed games in the past few weeks.
Manchester United Latest Team News:
Manchester United could be without their player of the season so far in Chris Smalling after he suffered a groin injury in the week against Wolfsburg and Matteo Darmian could also join him on the sidelines as he was forced off in the same match. They will join a list that already includes Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera and now Bastian Schweinsteiger as he has been banned for three matches following an incident in last week’s game with West Ham defender Winston Reid.
AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester United Head to Head Statistics
|22/02/89 BPL||Manchester United vs AFC Bournemouth||1 : 0|
|18/02/89 BPL||AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester United||1 : 1|
|05/01/85 BPL||Manchester United vs AFC Bournemouth||3 : 0|
|07/01/84 BPL||AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester United||2 : 0|
|26/10/82 BPL||AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester United||2 : 2|
These two sides have met just eight times throughout their existences and as expected Manchester United have dominated those matches with five wins to Bournemouth’s one.
But in the four meetings in which Bournemouth have held the home advantage, they have actually been relatively strong after losing just one game at home.
Using head to head statistics alone it would suggest that Manchester United have the better chance of taking all three points here.

Bournemouth are now on a three game unbeaten streak after achieving arguably their most historic victory ever against Chelsea last time out and they will be hoping to continue that run in this match.

Manchester United are in poor form and the squad will be low on confidence going into this match as they are now win-less in their last four matches and were knocked out of the Champions League in the week.

AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester United Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions
I am expecting another dull game from Manchester United here but it will be interesting to see how their defence will perform without their captain Chris Smalling. Even without Smalling in this match, I expect United to restrict Bournemouth to a maximum of one goal which should prove to be enough to get at least a point from the game. Having Wayne Rooney on the injury list could be good news for Manchester United and their fans because it will give either Memphis or Martial a chance to shine up-front.
And as for my saver I have decided to go with the match ending in a tie because Manchester United will be low on confidence coming into this match whereas Bournemouth are coming off the back of a historic win over Chelsea.
