Bournemouth vs Manchester United Preview

Saturday’s Premier League action kicks off at the Vitality Stadium where Bournemouth take on Manchester United.

Eddie Howe’s side are in great form having taken ten points from twelve available to them in October while they finished the month by booking their place in the last eight of the EFL Cup having beaten Norwich City on Tuesday evening.

Another victory here would see them move into the top four ahead of the weekend’s other fixtures.

Joshua King will again miss out as he continues to struggle with an ankle problem while captain Simon Francis will be given a late fitness test ahead of kick-off as he nurses a groin issue.

Callum Wilson is widely available at 8.0 (7/1) to score the first goal of the game with David Brooks, who has three in his last four outings a 15.0 (14/1) chance with Unibet.

The home win can be backed at a potentially generous 3.75 (11/4) with Befair, with the visitors favourites at 2.12 (19/17) with Unibet, who have the draw at 3.65 (45/17).

Jose Mourinho’s side edged to a 2-1 win over Everton last weekend and will move level on points with their high-flying opponents with another triumph here.

Defeat however could see them end the weekend in the bottom half, should other results go against them.

Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard are both pushing for starts after coming off the bench a week ago, though the latter had only just worked his way back from injury while Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini and Diogo Dalot remain sidelined.

Lukaku is favourite to open the scoring at 6.0 (5/1) with most firms, with Paul Pogba available at a price of 10.0 (9/1).

The Red Devils won both of last season’s clashes without conceding, following their 1-0 win at Old Trafford with a 2-0 triumph on the south coast.

You can back a United win to nil this time around at 4.0 (3/1) with Unibet though they have only kept one clean sheet in ten league games this season.

With that in mind, you may be tempted to back Bournemouth to open the scoring at 1.75 (3/4) with Ladbrokes.
