AFC Bournemouth welcomes Manchester United at the Vitality Stadium in a match from the 11th round of the Premier League.
Right now Bournemouth could be satisfied with they way they perform as they are 9th in the league standings with 13 points won so far, which is absolutely okay for the Cherries. What can worry them is the fact that they are without a win in their last four games in the league, doing three draws and losing once against Arsenal at the Emirates.
In the previous round Bournemouth won a point during their 0-0 draw against Watford at the Vicarage Road, although they can feel regretful about some missed opportunities in this match.
Against Manchester United the manager Eddie Howe can’t use some of his players. Charlie Daniels, Junior Stanislas, David Brooks and Dan Gosling are all injured, missing the home clash against the Red Devils.
Manchester United right now are enjoying a run of three consecutive wins, achieved in three different competitions – Europa League, Premier League and the League Cup.
Last week United managed to enjoy a 3-1 during the visit to Norwich City in the Premier League, while on Wednesday the team progressed in the League Cup as well. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys visited Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge and clinched a 2-1 win. Marcus Rashford scored both goals for the Red Devils.
This is a good run of results for Manchester United. The manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was heaviliy criticized lately, but this kind of performance could improve his current situation at the club. What Manchester United needs right now is just one thing – wins, wins and wins.
Based on Manchester United’s current form, we can say they are in a good position to chase all of the three points against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday. The Cherries are a tough opponents, but United are in a good shape right now.
