Relegation-threatened Bournemouth make the long journey to Old Trafford on Saturday to face a Manchester United side on the brink of breaking into the Premier League’s top four. Bournemouth lie 19th in the table on 27 points – one adrift of safety – whereas United are two behind fourth-placed Chelsea, having amassed 52 points from 32 matches.
Manchester United vs. Bournemouth Prediction
Too much has changed since that result in November to be able to predict another Bournemouth upset here. Since the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, United have looked increasingly dangerous going forward, and no longer rely purely on counter-attacks as they once did.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, appear to look more flimsy by the week and were simply swept aside by Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last two games.
A good result against Newcastle United could galvanise Eddie Howe’s troops, but to expect a positive result three days later at Old Trafford simply feels too hopeful. It’s more likely that the Red Devils simply thump them in a game reminiscent of their recent wins over Sheffield United and Brighton.
