Bournemouth v Manchester United Premier League Preview, 18th April 7.45pm
The Cherries couldn’t handle the attack of Liverpool at Anfield on the weekend, but then again, who can? They are still well on course of a mid-table finish and will fancy their chances at the Vitality in midweek against a Man Utd side who lost at home against West Brom on the weekend. It was such a strange result from United, losing against the bottom side in the league after having just beaten the league leaders.
Bournemouth v Manchester United Betting Odds*
Man Utd 7/10, Draw 14/5, Bournemouth 4/1* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018)
Bournemouth News and Form
The Cherries were blown away 3-0 at Anfield on the weekend leaving them with only the one victory in their last eight league games now (D4 L3). At home they have suffered just the one defeat though in their last eight games at the Vitality, winning four of those so it’s not been from them on the south coast. It is well worth looking at the half time draw cropping up here as Bournemouth have been level at the break in 10 of their home games this term including their last two. A half-time draw at William Hill is at 6/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). The Cherries have scored in each of their last eight home games in the top flight and have netted exactly two in six of their last seven there. The problems have been at the back though because they are without a clean sheet in their last eleven home fixtures which isn’t good. It has led to 75% of their home games this season going over 2.5 goals which is a pretty high percentage. Overall they have taken a clean sheet in just 12% of their home games. 72% of Bournemouth’s home goals have been in the second half of matches.
Manchester United News and Form
The Red Devils lost at home against West Brom on the weekend in a strange result. With spirits high after beating Manchester City, United just went back into their shell, looked pretty lifeless and suffered the consequences. Away from home United are W9 D3 L4 for the season and have won their last two on the road at Crystal Palace and then that epic comeback at the Etihad. They have actually not managed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last four away games so both teams to score at William Hill for 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) may be worth a flutter. They have averaged 1.75 goals per game on their travels and 61% of their away goals have been after the half time break. They have actually conceded more goals away from home in the opening 30 minutes of games than they have scored. It’s just all very strange from United’s players who look restrained and resigned at times. Romelu Lukaku is the 21/20 anytime goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds taken at 8:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) at William Hill.
Bournemouth v Manchester United Head to Head
The Cherries suffered only a 1-0 loss on their visit to Old Trafford earlier this season and that leaves them with a W1 D1 L3 record from their previous five Premier League games against the Red Devils. Both teams scored in four of those five meetings and from the previous two at the Vitality, it is one win each with both games going over 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Bournemouth v Manchester United Predictions
The Cherries may well have enough to rouse themselves for a good home performance in his one. They play with plenty of energy and pace, something that the Red Devils have been lacking a lot of lately. Draw.
